[Image: Mithali-Raj.jpg]MUMBAI: Viacom18 Motion Pictures has acquired the rights to produce a biopic on Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj.

The association between Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Mithali Raj was facilitated by Medallin Sports director Varun Chopra.

The studio had earlier backed content-driven films like ‘Queen’, ‘Manjhi’, ‘Drishyam’, ‘Mary Kom’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and the recent hit ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’.

Viacom18 Motion Pictures COO Ajit Andhare said, “Viacom18 Motion Pictures has always been the pioneer in showcasing content with portrayal of strong women characters right from Queen to Kahani to Mary Kom. We are proud to be collaborating with the young and inspirational Mithali Dorai Raj, a name single handedly responsible in bringing about a shift in the way women’s cricket team was perceived in our country.”

Mithali Raj is the highest run-scorer in women’s international cricket and the only woman cricketer to surpass the 6,000 run mark in ODIs. She is also the first player to score 7 consecutive 50s in ODIs. Raj is the first Indian to have lead the national team to an ICC ODI World Cup final twice – 2005 and 2017. An Arjuna awardee, Mithali was also awarded the Padma Shri in 2015, India’s fourth highest civilian award for her contribution towards the sport of cricket.

Mithali Raj says, “I am extremely happy on this association with Viacom18 Motion Pictures. Hoping that this movie inspires more people especially young girls to take up sports as a career.”

Medallin Sports Director Varun Chopra said, “We are pleased on this association with Viacom18 Motion Pictures and are looking forward to Mithali’s biopic. She remains to be an inspiration for multitudes for many years now and her story on the silver screen will keep motivating generations.”
