Taapsee Pannu says she would very much like to portray former skipper of Indian women's cricket team, Mithali Raj, on the big screen but till now there has been no offer from the makers.
There were speculations that the Game Over star has agreed to play the part in a film but at an event on Friday, she shot the down all the rumours. But she appealed to the media to endorse her for the role. "If I get it then it will be amazing to play cricket. You all please recommend my name to them. I wish I get to play this role. I really wanted to get signed for that film," Taapsee said.
The 31-year-old actor is excited about her upcoming film Saand Ki Aankh, the teaser of which was recently released. "It is one of the most challenging roles of my career. I feel making the decision of taking up acting wasn't as challenging as taking up this role but I have no regrets about it.
"I am very excited and anxious about the film, especially after getting a good response to the teaser. The level of excitement has gone up in me and Bhumi (Pednekar; her co-star in the film). I am waiting for Diwali when our film will be released," Taapsee said.
Recently, Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel had slammed Taapsee and Varun Dhawan for not mentioning Kangana's name while praising the trailer of Judgementall Hai Kya. When asked about her reaction to such trolling, Taapsee said, "When you are getting trolled, it means you matter. If you are not getting trolled, it means nobody wants to spend time and energy on you and you don't matter to anyone."
