IN CHAKDA XPRESS, ANUSHKA SHARMA WILL PLAY JHULAN GOSWAMI.
Anushka Sharma, who last appeared in Aanand L Rai's Zero alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif, is returning to the big screen after a three-year absence. Today, January 6, she released a teaser for her new flick Chakda Xpress. Anushka talked about playing former Indian women's team captain Jhulan Goswami in the film, which she described as "amazing."
"It's a truly unique film since it's ultimately a storey of immense sacrifice." Chakda Xpress is based on former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami's life and will provide insight into the world of women's cricket. When Jhulan decided to become a cricketer and represent her country on the international stage, it was extremely difficult for women to even consider taking up the sport. This is a dramatic retelling of various events in her life, as well as women's cricket. From support systems to facilities to having a consistent income from playing the game to simply having a future in cricket, women in India have had a hard time breaking through.
"Jhulan had a tumultuous and unpredictable cricket career, but she never lost sight of her goal of making her country proud. She worked to dispel the myth that women can't make a living playing cricket in India, so that the next generation of female cricketers would have a more even playing field. Chakda Xpress is the most definitive peek into the not-so-rosy world of women's cricket back then, and her life is a living testimony that passion and tenacity triumph over any and all adversity. There is still more work to be done, and we must provide them with the greatest resources possible so that the sport may thrive for women in India. Jhulan and her teammates should be commended for redefining women's cricket.
ANUSHKA TO RETURN TO THE FILM INDUSTRY WITH THREE MAJOR PROJECTS?
Anushka Sharma's admirers have been waiting for her return to the big screen for a long time. The Sultan actress signed three high-profile Bollywood projects last month, according to reports. Two of them will be released theatrically, while the third, Chakda Xpress, will be an OTT original film.
"Anushka Sharma's comeback to the big screen in 2022 is the best thing that could happen to our industry." She'll be seen in three large projects, two of which are big screen entertainers and one of which is a massively mounted OTT project. This project is easily the largest film produced for the internet domain in India due to the size with which it is being conceptualized! We can expect these announcements to begin early next year, and Anushka's admirers will be overjoyed by the variety of projects she will pick to delight them with," a trade source said.
"With Anushka's amazing track record of delivering the biggest hits in Hindi cinema, combined with her brilliant, flexible acting skills, these projects are already enormous talking points." As a result, any announcement is likely to generate a lot of buzz. Anushka has always wanted to be a part of the best cinema that the Hindi film industry has to offer, and these new selections will reflect her desire to work on fresh and new projects. She plans to concentrate on her acting career and hopes to be a part of cinema that is both unique and exciting," the insider stated.
