A biopic on Mithali Raj is in the works.

It’s raining biopics in Bollywood and the latest to join the bandwagon is one on the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, Mithali Raj. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures has acquired the official rights of a film to be made on the spunky cricketer.

We are proud to be collaborating with the young and inspirational Mithali Dorai Raj, a name single-handedly responsible in bringing about a shift in the way women’s cricket team was perceived in our country.
Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Motion Pictures (as said to Indian Express)

Raj too is excited about the film.

I am extremely happy on this association with Viacom18 Motion Pictures. Hoping that this movie inspires more people especially young girls to take up sports as a career.
Mithali Raj, Captain, India Women’s Cricket Team (as said to Indian Express)

Who’s going to play Raj in the lead role and who’s going to direct the film? Watch this space for more.
