Jhulan Goswami Excited To Present Her Story Through Chakda Xpress! Deets Inside!!
Anushka Sharma is making her comeback through the movie titled “Chakda Xpress”. The movie aims to narrate the story of famous women Cricketer “Jhulan Goswami”. The movie was announced on Thursday. The cricketer shared the teaser of the film on Instagram and wrote, “Now is the time to watch the women shine.”
The PK actress shared the post of Indian skipper and told that it has been an honor for her to play an onscreen cricketer. Moreover, Jhulan stated the struggles of a female cricketer through her post. She wrote, “When you represent India, that’s all that is on your mind. Tum desh ke liye khel rahe ho, apne liye nahi (You play for the country, not for yourself). 11 women playing to place Team India’s name in history. It doesn’t matter if they said ladkiyan cricket nahi khel sakti (women can’t play cricket). It doesn’t matter if sometimes a man’s accomplishments are placed above your own. It doesn’t matter if the stadiums are empty.”
Posting Jhulan’s note on her post, Anushka wrote, “It is an absolute honor to play you in this film that’s inspired by your gutsy life. Every Indian must see and know what you and the girls in blue did and continue to do for the country. Thank you!”
Adding to her statement, Jhulan wrote, “It’s this level of unblinking focus that lends itself to success. That, and remembering that you’re here not in spite of everything that went wrong, but because of everything that went right. It’s about knowing one’s place in the world and having one’s feet firmly on the ground. You deserve to be here. And this is only the beginning.”
Talking about the film, Anushka told that ‘it’s a story of tremendous sacrifice’. Furthermore, she said, “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.”
The movie is set to release on Netflix.
