There are cricketers who have a tremendous fan following. There are cricketers who inspire you and make you believe that if they can so can you! And then there’s Mithali who did all of this in her classic graceful style and also changed the game of cricket where the presence of women is concerned.”

The actress added, “Not just in our country but she will be remembered for her contribution to women’s cricket across the globe. I just got too fortunate as a fan, who got to live her glorious journey of 23 years for a bit on camera, which taught me so much about resilience and perseverance. She is truly a legend we can never thank enough.”
