Actor Anushka Sharma started filming her upcoming project 'Chakda ‘Xpress,'
after months of cricket training. This will be her first movie, since the 2018 film 'Zero', which also starred Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. Anushka took to Instagram, and shared glimpses from the set. 'Chakda ‘Xpress' is inspired by the life of former Indian cricket captain Jhulan Goswami, and will stream on Netflix.
Anushka shared a video of her vanity van with a picture of the film written on the door. She added a sneak peek of cricket balls which appeared to be taken from the film's set. She wrote in the caption, “Back to where I belong.” The actor also received a welcome note with goodies from her brother Karnesh Ssharma who is backing the film under the banner of his production house, Clean Slate Filmz. Responding to the gesture, she added to him, “Thanks for the ‘must haves’ for this new journey! Most thoughtful crew.”
Fans gave their best wishes to Anushka in the comments section of her post. Her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli, dropped a series of heart emojis. Actor Ranveer Singh and cricketer Jhulan Goswami also reacted to the post with several emojis.
Directed by Prosit Roy, the film is based on the life of Jhulan, who became the second Indian woman cricketer to receive the Padma Shri in 2012. It marks Anushka’s comeback to acting after she took a break. Anushka and Virat's daughter Vamika was born in 2021.
