Taapsee Pannu has an exciting line-up of films in the pipeline. From Haseen Dilruba to Shabaash Mithu, the actress is currently busy with seven upcoming projects. The Akarsh Khurana directorial sports biographical film Rashmi Rocket is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Now, if recent reports are anything to go by, then the makers have recently got into talks for a direct to digital release considering the ongoing pandemic.

A close to the production was quoted as saying by Pinkvilla, “The makers have decided to release the film on an OTT platform, and are in talks with multiple streaming giants for the same. A final call will be taken in a few days.” Taapsee’s Haseen Dilruba is already set to have a direct to OTT release on Netflix in July this year. 


Rashmi Rocket is based on the extraordinary journey of a national-level athlete from Bhuj. Last year, Taapsee set social media abuzz with one of the viral pictures, where she can be seen sporting short hair, tattoos on her clavicle and an athletic physique.

In an early interview, when asked about the three different looks of Taapsee in the film, director Akarsh had told OTTplay, “I can’t reveal much about all the looks because those are the most intriguing parts of the film. But as Rashmi is an athlete from Bhuj, her most significant appearance is when she becomes a national-level athlete. That look is already out.”

“The shooting period was tough for us but it was tougher for Taapsee as she had to maintain her weight, body appearance and follow her strict diet throughout the year. She also continued her rigorous training even when we were not shooting during the pandemic. Hats off to her!” the director added.
