Pics Viral: Anushka to play Indian cricket captain Jhulan Goswami in biopic?
It has been more than a year since we have seen Anushka Sharma on the big screen. Her last film was Zero, which hit the screens in 2018. Aanand L Rai's directorial venture also starred Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead. While Katrina has not stopped making films after Zero's debacle at the box office, SRK and Anushka have taken a long break. But now, it looks like Anushka is ready with a new project.

We have come across a few pictures, being shared by Anushka's fan clubs on social media, that feature Anushka and the former captain of the Indian national women's cricket team, Jhulan Goswami. Going by the photos it seems that Anushka has given a nod to an upcoming biopic, which will be based on the cricketer's life.

The viral pictures show Anushka and Jhulan interacting with each other at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, as mentioned by the fan clubs. While the actress can be seen sporting an old team India jersey, Jhulan is wearing a dark blue jacket and jeans. The two are seen walking together.

It is reported that they were shooting for the teaser of the biopic. The film is tentatively titled Chakdaha Express, which is in reference to Jhulan's native city in West Bengal. Various media reports also suggest that it will be helmed by Prosit Joy who directed Pari (2018) starring Anushka Sharma.
