Mithali Raj and I have opposite personalities, says Taapsee Pannu

Whenever an actor portrays a well known real life character on big screen, they often talk about the similarities between themselves and the character. However, that is not the case with actress Taapsee Pannu, who is all set to portray cricketer Mithali Raj in the upcoming biographical drama 'Shabas Mithu'. In a recent conversation with Bollywood Times, Taapsee shared how her personality is total opposite of Mithali's personality and moreover, she had no idea how to play cricket prior to filming of this project.

She stated, "I am a fish out of water when it comes to cricket. I hadn’t picked a bat in my life until I started prep for this film. I had to train for months. Also, besides learning the technique of the sport that I had never played, Mithali and I are polar opposites as people. Our personalities are drastically different."

Taapsee added, "She is very poised, elegant and weighs every word as she speaks. I am the exact opposite. For me to control my expressions and not have an exaggerated reaction when compared to the degree that she does was a huge challenge. I had to convey my thoughts through my eyes. How does one control the exhilaration that comes naturally to me? I had a tough time figuring out the range to play Mithali.”
