New Delhi

: Actor Anushka Sharma has 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. On Sunday, Anushka took to Instagram and shared glimpses from the set. For the unversed, Chakda ‘Xpress is inspired by the life of former Indian cricket captain Jhulan Goswami and will stream on Netflix.

Taking to her Instagram handle on Sunday, the ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ actor shared a glimpse of her vanity van which shows her character name ‘Jhulan’. Then, she posted pictures of clapboard, balls and helmets. Anushka

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.”

After sharing the post, Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh dropped some emojis while her husband and cricketer Virat Kohli posted heart emojis in the comment section.

Cricketer Jhulan Goswami, whose role Anushka is playing in the movie, also commented on the post. She dropped heart, clap and joining hands emojis in the comment section. 

“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,” an excerpt from Anushka’s Chakda ‘Xpress announcement post read.
