Last seen in filmmaker Aanand L Rai’s Zero (2018) opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has started filming for her much-anticipated movie Chakda Xpress.
The actress had been preparing to slide into the skin of her character for several months now. She always made sure to share glimpses of her preparation on her Instagram handle.
For the uninitiated, Sharma plays Indian fast bowler Jhulan Goswami in the upcoming biographical drama, which is set at Netflix.
Sharing more details, a trade source informs a newswire, “Yes, this is true. Anushka Sharma’s highly awaited next Chakda Xpress has gone on floors from today. No stone will be unturned by the makers to make this into a spectacular and riveting movie. This is Anushka’s first film after she became a mother. So, there is a lot of anticipation to see her back on screen because she has delivered some of the most remarkable performances as a leading lady in Indian cinema. Plus, the fact that Anushka is doing a cricket film, makes the product even hotter.”
If sources are to be believed, a major portion of the film is set in the UK. The actress will arrive in the UK to shoot a 30-day schedule of the cricket film soon.
Chakda Xpress chronicles the inspirational journey of Jhulan as she climbs up the ladder, facing a series of challenges in her professional life posed by misogynistic politics. She succeeded in her goal against all odds and went on to become the captain of the Indian women’s national cricket team and is a role model for aspiring cricketers in the country.
In 2018, an Indian postage stamp was issued in her honour. Jhulan holds the world record for the highest number of wickets taken by a woman in an international career.
