Viacom18 Motion Pictures to produce biopic on Mithali Raj

New Delhi, Sept 26 (UNI) After the successful biopic of former captains M S Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar, soon viewers will see the biopic of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team captain, Mithali Raj on the silver screen. Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the studio that backed content driven films like 'Queen', 'Manjhi', 'Drishyam', 'Mary Kom', 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' and the recent hit, 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha' has acquired rights for the film based on life of Mithali Raj. Making the announcement, Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, said, “Viacom18 Motion Pictures has always been the pioneer in showcasing content with portrayal of strong women characters right from Queen to Kahani to Mary Kom. We are proud to be collaborating with the young and inspirational Mithali Dorai Raj, a name single-handedly responsible in bringing about change in the way women’s cricket team was perceived in our country.” The association between Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Mithali Raj has been facilitated by Varun Chopra – Director, Medallin Sports. Speaking about the venture, Varun Chopra said, “We are pleased on this association with Viacom18 Motion Pictures and are looking forward to Mithali’s Biopic. She remains to be an inspiration for multitudes for many years now and her story on the silver screen will keep motivating generations.” Speaking about the venture, Mithali Raj said, “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.” With a phenomenal record of being the highest run scorer in One Day Internationals averaging above 51, the captain of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team, Mithali Raj has had a remarkable journey on the field. Mithali Raj is the highest run-scorer in women's international cricket and the only woman cricketer to surpass the 6,000 run mark in ODIs. She is also the first player to score 7 consecutive 50s in ODIs. Raj is the first Indian to have lead the national team to an ICC ODI World Cup final twice - 2005 and 2017. An Arjuna awardee, Mithali was also awarded the Padma Shri in 2015, India’s fourth highest civilian award for her contribution towards the sport of cricket. The biopic on the life of Mithali Raj follows recent biopics on life of former Indian captains M S Dhoni and Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. UNI AR AKC SW1557
