The Anushka Sharma-starrer ‘Chakda Express’, based on the life of veteran Indian women’s cricketer Jhulan Goswami has already created a lot of speculations among everyone. The movie will be shown on Netflix as well.

The movie shows how Jhulan Goswami managed to fight all odds to fulfil her dreams of playing cricket for the country. While the film is produced by Anushka Sharma and her brother Karnesh Sharma’s Clean Slate Filmz, it is directed by Prosit Roy. The teaser of the movie has earned a lot of likes and comments on social media platforms as well.

Earlier, Anushka Sharma, who is also the wife of Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli, expressed her gratitude for being able to live the journey of veteran speedster Jhulan Goswami, who is one of the pillars of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team.

“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,” Sharma said in a statement.

“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,” she stated.

“It doesn’t matter if sometimes a man’s accomplishments are placed above your own. It doesn’t matter if the stadiums are empty. When you pull up on to the pitch to bowl, all you see is the opponent holding the cricket bat and the stumps you need to knock out,” Anushka further added.

Jhulan Goswami has so far played 12 Tests, 192 ODIs and 68 T20Is, claiming 44, 240 and 56 wickets respectively as well. Currently, she is preparing for the upcoming Women’s World Cup.
