2019 was chosen as the year to film the biography. Raj stated: “Priyanka Chopra, in my opinion, is a fantastic choice (to play me in the biopic). Our personalities are very similar. I don’t enjoy watching movies, so I’d prefer if the professionals handled it.” In the end, Taapsee Pannu was selected to play Mithali Raj in the biopic Shabaash Mithu, which Rahul Dholakia will film in 2020.

The movie’s casting was decided upon on December 3, 2019, Mithali Raj’s birthday, with Taapsee Pannu playing the lead and Rahul Dholakia serving as the director.

Taapsee Pannu uploaded images of her training and preparation for the movie again in March 2021.

She received instruction from Mithali Raj’s friend and former cricket player Nooshin Al Khadeer. Rahul Dholakia’s film was originally scheduled for release on February 5, 2021, however the COVID-19 fallout forced the postponement of filming.

Due to a change in the film’s schedule, Srijit Mukherji took over as director in June in place of Rahul Dholakia.

Principal photography for the movie started on April 5, 2021, although it was postponed because to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. Finally, on November 9th, the filming was completed. The Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, as well as other domestic and foreign sites, were used to shoot the movie in order to capture the authenticity of the real-life events that affected Mithali.

The producer revealed the movie’s release date as 4 February 2022 on 3 December, the same day Mithali Raj celebrated her birthday. The comedy movie Badhaai Do, starring Rajkummar Rao, had to be postponed till February 11 because of the conflicting date. The movie was never released, but it is presently planned for release on July 15, 2022.
