Taapsee Pannu's Highly Anticipated Sports Drama Rashmi Rocket – When & Where to Watch

Taapsee Pannu is known for taking some unconventional storylines and characters in the past, which have proved to be major hits like Mulk, Badla, Saand Ki Aankh. She is back again with another blockbuster movie this festive season, titled Rashmi Rocket

This film is not based on any real-life athlete and is a completely fictional story where Taapsee is playing a girl named Rashmi, popularly known as “rocket” because of her running skills. She is a hails from a small town of Kutch in Gujarat, who dreams of competing internationally.

Rashmi Rocket, starring Taapsee, is all set to release this Dussehra. This film dives into the topic of gender testing in sports, which is known to impact the careers of many great women athletes both in India and abroad. 

The plotline of Rashmi Rocket revolves around a Gujarati sprinter who aspires to represent India on an international level. Her speed makes her a sensation at many local & International events. Unfortunately, her aspiring career is cut short by gender testing. This film draws inspiration from several real-life incidents of female runners who were banned for hyperandrogenism.

Taapsee Pannu has done complete justice to her role in Rashmi Rocket and proves yet again that there was no better fit than her for this movie. She has taken various projects in the past questioning the patriarchal notions in society and playing women-centric roles.

 For her role in Rashmi Rocket, Taspsee Pannu underwent rigorous training and followed a strict diet to achieve a real-life athlete physique. The actress shared pictures of her intense training and transformation from sets on social media. 

In an interview, Taapsee said that building an athletic body requires a very scientific approach, with every muscle in the body requiring different sets of exercise. She also mentioned that she issued strict instructions to her team that she would not use any steroids for building the physique required in this film.

While practicing running in the initial days of the shoot, Taapsee severely injured her leg muscles. She told me that she had to take many different treatments and therapies to be able to stand on her legs again. Even after having injured her leg while preparing for the role of Rashmi, Rocket Taapsee did not give up and came back stronger to finish the shoot.

I know you are eager to watch this upcoming blockbuster film, so are we. Luckily, you don’t have to wait too long. Directed by Akarsh Khurana and Co-produced by Neha Anand, Ronnie Screwvala, and Pranjal Khandhdiya, Rashmi Rocket will release on 15th October 2021. The movie is skipping theaters and instead schedules to release exclusively on Zee5, India's largest OTT platform.

Zee5 has adapted to the change in content consumption amidst lockdown and has delivered original shows that resonate with upliftment, hope, and positivity. Before Rashmi Rocket, Taapsee Pannu also starred in Annabelle Sethupathi and Haseen Dillruba, which opted for a digital release. The actress also has a few more movies lined up, including Dobaara, Looop Lapeta, Shabaash Mithu.
