director Rahul Dholakia issued a statement on Twitter and gave information about this. He tweeted and released a statement, which wrote- ‘There are some films that you want to do, well, Mithu was one of those films. When I read the script, I decided that I have to do this film. This was about a year and a half ago. Unfortunately I have to finish the journey which started in November 2019. I will not be directing the brilliant screenplay written by Priya Aven and conceived by Ajit Andhare.’

Rahul further wrote- ‘Unfortunately I will no longer be a part of this dream, but I will always be present to make his dream come true. Kovid messed up everyone’s schedule, so did mine. Ajith has a vision, a plan for the film and a way to release it. I wish him and his team all the best for this. Thank you! Best wishes, Rahul Dholakia.
Let us tell you, a poster of this film has also surfaced. In this poster, Taapsee Pannu is seen hitting a pull shot in the style of Mithali Raj. Sharing the poster of the film, Taapsee wrote- ‘I was always asked who is your favorite male cricketer, but you should ask him who is your favorite female cricketer. This is the statement that made every cricket lover think whether he loves the game or the gender playing it. Captain, you will be the ultimate game changer.
