After the success of Mission Mangal and Game Over, actress Taapsee Pannu is all set to take on yet another journey with her new sports film, Rashmi Rocket.

Taapsee plays the lead role in the film about Gujarat’s athlete Rashmi. Her villagers fondly call her Rashmi Rocket, given her speed.

Talking to a leading media organisation, Taapsee reportedly said, “This story instantly hit the right chord when I heard the idea. It’s one of those few films I was waiting to be developed into a script for me to do. Funnily, I have been made to run in almost every film I’ve done in every other genre. But this time, it’s going to be an out-and-out athlete’s tale. What excited me the most was the human drama that unfolds in her life, which makes it much more than a regular story of an athlete.”

Taapsee is currently awaiting the release of her another sports biopic, Saand Ki Aankh, in which she and Bhumi Pednekar portray the role of world’s oldest sharpshooters - Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar from Uttar Pradesh.
