Actress Anushka Sharma will be training in England to prepare for her upcoming film Chakda Xpress. The sports drama is based on the life of former Indian captain and fast bowler Jhulan Goswami. It will be released on Netflix.
Sharma, who recently finalized the first schedule of Chakda Xpress, is now gearing up to shoot the intense cricket portions of the film. A source said: “Anushka is leaving no stone unturned to become Jhulan on screen. She will prepare her body. She will be extensively honing her cricket skills in Leeds from mid-August before she begins filming the cricket parts of the film. She has always been a committed artist and wants to live up to her role. She will prepare thoroughly and undergo rigorous training exercises before filming key scenes from late August to September.”
Chakda Xpress marks Anushka Sharma’s comeback to the big screen following 2018’s film Zero. It will be shot in India and the UK and produced by Clean Slate Filmz, now directed by Sharma’s brother Karnesh Sharma.
Speaking of Chakda Xpress, the actor previously said in a statement: “This film is a dramatic retelling of several events that shaped Jhulan Goswami’s life and also women’s cricket.”
