Biopic on Mithali Raj


With Bollywood’s obsession for biopics, especially on sports personalities, a film on the captain of the Indian Women’s cricket team, Mithali Raj, has been added to the list. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures has bagged the rights to make a film on Mithali Raj, who owns the record of being the highest run scorer in one-day internationals, with 6000 runs to her credit. Mithali was awarded the Arjuna Award in 2003 and the Padma Shri in 2015. Since the idea is just floated, the makers of Mithali Raj biopic are still on the lookout for a leading lady. Any suggestions?
