Rashmi Rocket, which takes place in Kutch in 2014, revolves around the life of Rashmi (Taapsee) who is a sprinter and dreams of becoming a national athlete. The film traces Rashmi’s ban from sports due to his high testosterone levels. She faces the country’s athletics association in a legal battle to regain her respect and identity. The film is directed by Akarsh Khurana.
Speaking to Indian Express recently, Taapsee spoke about how Rashmi Rocket is different from other female films she has made so far. “The female films I’ve made so far are all about a girl who’s an outsider and then she becomes the hero of her life. Here, Rashmi is a hero from the first picture. For me, she was a heroic character on the big screen, ”she reportedly said.
