Directed by Akarsh Khurana, Rashmi Rocket is a fictional sports movie about a girl named Rashmi from Kutch, Gujarat. The villagers have given her the name Rocket, because of the speed at which she runs. The movie narrates how Rashmi’s aspirations and dreams become a quest for respect, honour and identity.

RSVP Movies had earlier described the character of Rashmi via a series of tweets. They shared that Rashmi’s biggest strength is her simplicity and that she will be coming to share her journey to inspire others. While another one of the producer’s tweets read “An eye that’s aiming for the finish line will see through all odds! Rashmi is here to inspire you with her journey.”

Meanwhile, Taapsee Pannu was recently seen in Haseen Dillruba that released on Netflix and has been creating headlines. Apart from Rashmi Rocket, Tapsee has Looop Lapeta, Telugu film Mishan Impossible and Mithali Raj’s biopic Shabaash Mithu in the pipeline.
