Anushka Sharma to play Indian women team’s fast bowler Jhulan Goswami in Chakda Xpress

Anushka Sharma returns to the movies after three years (given the pandemic and her maternity break) to headline a film inspired by the life and times of women cricket’s all-time greatest fast bowler Jhulan Goswami. Titled Chakda Express, the hugely-mounted Netflix film is tracing the glorious journey of one of the fastest female pacers in the history of world cricket, Jhulan, as she moves up the ladder despite countless hindrances to fulfil her only dream – to play cricket. Anushka has started filming Chakda Xpress, which will be shot in India and UK and is being produced by Clean Slate Filmz.

The actress says, “It feels like my first film again and I’m really excited to start this journey with Chakda Xpress, a film that I truly believe in. The pandemic unfortunately kept me away from returning to the movies despite me itching to start filming quickly. I would have loved to entertain and engage with fans way earlier.”

Anushka will be flying to the UK to shoot a 30-day schedule for the film. She has put in months of preparation to get into the skin of the character.
