Anushka Sharma is back with a bang. The actress has posted the teaser for Chakda Xpress, the biopic of former India national women's cricket captain Jhulan Goswami. The teaser shows her leading her team to a cricket field with vacant stands, and as she makes a promise - “Today, you see us. Tomorrow, you’ll remember our names.”
Anushka Sharma starrer Chakda Xpress will be based on the life of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami. Anushka shared a preview from the film on her social media writing: "It is a really special film because it is essentially a story of tremendous sacrifice. Chakda Xpress is inspired by the life and times of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami and it will be an eye-opener into the world of women's cricket. At a time when Jhulan decided to become a cricketer and make her country proud on the global stage, it was very tough for women to even think of playing the sport. This film is a dramatic retelling of several instances that shaped her life and also women's cricket."
She also elaborated a few more things about the movie that you could see in her post right here.
Chakda Xpress is Anushka Sharma's first assignment after the birth of her daughter Vamika, who she welcomed in 2021. Her last appearance was in 2018 "Zero" with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
Jhulan herself shared another post about the biopic on social media. She says "When you represent India, that's all that is on your mind. Tum desh ke liye khel rahe ho, apne liye nahi. 11 women playing to place Team India's name in history. It doesn't matter if they said ladkiyan cricket nahi khel sakti. It doesn't matter if sometimes a man's accomplishments are placed above your own. It doesn't matter if the stadiums are empty. When you pull up onto the pitch to bowl, all you see is the opponent holding the cricket bat and the stumps you need to knock out."
