The trailer for Shabaash Mithu, featuring Taapsee Pannu as the former Indian international cricketer Mithali Raj, was released on Monday, June 20. Slated to release in cinemas on July 15, the Srijit Mukherji directorial also features Mumtaz Sorcar, Vijay Raaz, and Brijendra Kala in prominent roles.
Now, the Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has reacted to the film's trailer. Sharing the trailer on his Twitter account in the wee hours of Wednesday, June 22, BigB wrote, "all my good wishes Taapsee..." and added three heart emojis.
Replying to him, the Thappad actress called him Rockstar and wrote, "Thank you Rockstar (red heart emoji) for all the wishes and love always (hugs emojis)."
Taapsee and Amitabh share a good rapport since the duo worked with each other in Sujoy Ghosh's mystery thriller Badla. Also starring Amrita Singh, the film was an official remake of the 2016 Spanish film The Invisible Guest.
