After a long hiatus, Anushka Sharma is all set to make her way back to the silver screen with sports biopic Chakda ‘Xpress. The actress will be seen stepping into the shoes of cricket legend, Jhulan Goswami and she has been hard at work. Anushka’s commitment to the part has impressed everyone and Virat Kohli is no exception.
Recently, Virat heaped praise on the Pari actress during a chat show and said, “For me, a movie was just about watching it for three hours. Then I saw Anushka train for the film and I was like respect boss. She is finding the process challenging. This is the first time she is doing such a thing and that too by learning bowling.”
NGL, we love how Virat and Anushka support each through personal and professional journeys. They are the definition of #Couplegoals!
Earlier this year, Anushka took to the ‘Gram to share the first teaser of Chakda ‘Xpress and it blew our minds. She also penned a long note on her journey and wrote, “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.”
We are beyond excited to see Anushka as one of the most celebrated Indian cricketers of all time. Don’t you agree fam?
