Actor Taapsee Pannu will essay the role of athlete Rashmi from Gujarat in her upcoming film, titled Rashmi Rocket. The first motion poster of the movie was unveiled Friday morning. Directed by Akarsh Khuranna, the film will be bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvalla’s RSVP Movies.

Sharing the poster, Taapsee’s Mission Mangal co-star Akshay Kumar wrote on Twitter, “This ROCKET is set for her next MISSION and she’s off to the tracks! Presenting a glimpse of @taapsee in and as #RashmiRocket. @MrAkvarious @RonnieScrewvala @RSVPMovies @iammangopeople #NehaAnand #PranjalKhandhdiya Music for the motion poster: @LesleLewis” 

Taapsee plays the lead role in the film that about Gujarat’s athlete Rashmi. Folks from her village fondly call her Rashmi Rocket, given her speed.

Talking about her new project, Taapsee told DNA in an interview, “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.”

Producer Ronnie told the website that Rashmi Rocket is the story of “a girl who achieves and conquers in her field despite all the adversities.”
