  • Rashmi Rocket is an upcoming Bollywood movie in which Taapsee will be seen essaying the role of a Gujarati athlete from Kutch. After showing her hockey skills in Soorma(2018), Taapsee is back with her athletic sports drama, Rashmi Rocket. Rashmi Rocket sports drama talks about a fictional Gujarati girl named Rashmi, who is a fast runner from a village and people there calls her "Rocket"

The trailer for Taapsee Pannu’s highly anticipated film Rashmi Rocket dropped on Thursday. The trailer tells the story of a young girl who has been a fast runner since her childhood, and grows up to become a successful, professional athlete. The film is based on the ‘struggles of several female athletes.’

Rashmi’s career as a sportsperson is seemingly derailed after a medical examination after which she is dubbed ‘masculine’ and thus, ineligible to compete in women’s sports due to hyperanderogenism. Rashmi Rocket then follows the athlete’s fight for respect, honour, and justice.

Actor Taapsee Pannu is back to playing a sportsperson in Rashmi Rocket, just this time, the plot is beyond her crossing the finishing line. The makers of the sports drama released the film’s trailer on Thursday, and it promises a hard-hitting tale. Directed by Akarsh Khurana, Rashmi Rocket also stars Supriya Pathak, Priyanshu Painyuli and Abhishek Banerjee.

Rashmi Rocket revolves around a village girl who aspires to represent India at the world championship. The sprinter might have become an inspiration back home, but she soon realises the exploitation female athletes face in the name of gender testing under the age-old system of our country. When her body type fails to fall under the conventional feminine cut, she gets banned from the sport after being declared ‘not a woman’. Thus begins her fight against the athletics association to regain her respect and a personal battle to uphold her identity and get back to the race of life.
