Rashmi missile trailer released. The Bollywood movie, starring Taapsee Pannu in the lead role, is about a country girl who dreams of becoming an international athlete. Besides Taapsee, the film also stars Priyanshu Painyuli, Abhishek Bannerjee and Supriya Pathak.
In the trailer, Taapsee’s Rashmi is introduced as a talented runner since her childhood. She won honors for the country and climbed the ladder of success. However, her life takes a turn when she is called in for a gender verification test, which leaves her shattered. On charges of fraud and ban from the national team, she files a human rights violation case and with the help of a lawyer played by Abhishek, she fights for justice.

Directed by Akarsh Khurana, the Rashmi missile will be launched on October 15, on Zee5. The film was co-written by Kanika Dillon, who also collaborated with Taapsee for Haseen Dillruba.
Taapsee underwent a physical transformation to play a runner in Rachmi’s rocket. Through filming, the actress has shared photos of her intense training and transformation on social media. Earlier this week, when she shared a photo from the groups, the Bollywood news-centric Twitter account retweeted her post and wrote, “Ye Mard Ki Body Wali sirftaapsee hi Ho Sakti hai (only Taapsee can have a manly body like this).” Taapsee replied, “All I’m going to say is….just remember that line and wait for September 23rd 🙂 and offer me, thank you, you worked hard for that compliment.”
