Where To Watch ‘Rashmi Rocket’ Online?
It is quite obvious that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you won’t see the movie in theaters. So the fight for the rights of releasing a movie on OTT platforms is quite fierce. For Rashmi Rocket, Zee5 bagged in the rights to launch it to its platform. There is not any update about the runtime of this sports movie as of now. But considering recent trends, you can expect it to be around 2 hours.
What Is ‘Rashmi Rocket’ About?
As we mentioned earlier, the focal point of the film would be a gifted female athlete. However, due to her not being conventionally feminine, her dream of becoming a national-level athlete will suffer. In fact, she would even be asked to go through a gender test.
It’s a pretty great plot and will certainly help in encouraging how fans view female athletes. Pannu shared her views about this issue and why she picked up the movie.
“I met Nanda Periyasamy (Rashmi Rocket writer), who had the story with him for this film,” She said. “He had made a very beautiful AV of the story for my reference. 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.”
