Beginning in the salt pans of Kutch, Rashmi Rocket is about a young girl from a village, blessed with a gift – SPEED. She’s an incredibly fast runner. The village fondly knows her as “Rocket”. When she gets a chance to showcase her talent professionally, she excels but also realizes that the race to the finish line is peppered with many hurdles, and what seems like an athletic contest turns into her personal battle for respect, honour, and even her very identity.
Taking to their social media, RSVP movies posted, “Getting back on track, one lap at a time! #RashmiRocket to start shooting this November. #FridaysWithRSVP

“I have been involved in this project from the very inception stage so that makes this one really special. Just before the pandemic I was already 3 months into my training period to transform into a physique closest to that of a sprinter. This has been a long break but with the kind of subject it is I am excited to restart the journey from scratch again starting with my training.” says Taapsee Pannu
