Anushka Sharma Makes Comeback As Jhulan Goswami In Netflix Film ‘Chakda Xpress’


Anushka Sharma fans rejoice as the actress who was last seen in the 2018 film Zero, has announced her next project on Thursday. The movie titled Chakda Xpress will have an OTT release on Netflix.

Chakda Xpress is Anushka Sharma’s first project after the birth of her and husband Virat Kohli’s daughter Vamika, who the couple welcomed in 2021. 

The film is based on the life of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami, in which Anushka Sharma plays the titular role. Sharing a teaser of sorts from the film, Anushka 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,” she said.

Anushka shared that the film is a dramatic retelling of several instances that shaped her life and also women’s cricket.

“From support systems, to facilities, to having a stable income from playing the game, to even having a future in cricket – very little propelled women of India to take up cricket as a profession. Jhulan had a fighting and extremely uncertain cricketing career and she stayed motivated to make her country proud. She strived to change the stereotype that women can’t make a career out of playing cricket in India so that the next generation of girls had a better playing field.”

Anushka added that Jhulan’s life is a living testimony that passion and perseverance triumphs over any or all adversities and ‘Chakda Xpress’ is the most definitive look into the not so rosy world of women’s cricket back then.

“As a woman, I was proud to hear Jhulan’s story and it is an honour for me to try and bring her life to audiences and cricket lovers. As a cricketing nation, we have to give our women cricketers their due.”

The film is produced by Anushka’s brother Karnesh Ssharma and directed by Prosit Roy.
