The film is loosely inspired by a Hungarian right-hand shooter Karoly Takacs. According to Balki, the film was adapted for a different sport (cricket) so that the audience would already understand the technicalities of the game.

The trailer is a montage with a voice-over from Abhishek Bachchan who talks about the journey of the character portrayed by Saiyami Kher. From the looks of it, she portrays a cricketer who loses her right arm in an accident, right after she’s selected in the national team. Whereas, Abhishek Bachchan plays a mentor who takes it on himself to turn it all around for the cricketer.

This cricket story looks like something new, specifically as a sports-drama, and there’s clearly a lot to look forward too. On top of all of that, both Abhishek Bachchan and Saiyami Kher seem to have a lot to offer, when it comes to their characters.
