Taapsee Pannu and Priyanshu Painyuli were unaware of gender testing before  Rashmi Rocket 

Taapsee Pannu's long awaited sports drama 'Rashmi Rocket' is about to release this month on Zee5. The trailer of the film was released few days ago and it established that 'Rashmi Rocket' is not going to be like any other sports flick. While most sports movies are heavy on inspirational and patriotic undertones, this one is a rather dark and thrilling tale centered around a malpractice involving female athletes.

Movie will feature Taapsee in the role of a small town athlete whose career is runied after a gender verification test. Following this, she faces humiliation from authorities and society. Taapsee shared in a recent interview that she had no idea about the issue before being approched for this film. She said, "When I saw it, I was honestly shocked because I like watching sports and follow it a lot too, but still, I had no idea about the gender testing issue that the film highlights. I had to Google it. I was completely shocked after I got to know the details about this particular issue."

Actor Priyanshu Painyuli, who plays Taapsee's husband, was also unaware of gender verification tests. He said, "I got to know about the gender testing issue through Rashmi Rocket. While shooting I checked with our director Akarsh, that ‘are we taking creative liberty for the movie or is this truly happening’ and I was shocked to know that this is truly happening. We are hoping that through our movie, this issue is highlighted to a larger section of the society."
