Actor Anushka Sharma has begun the last leg of shooting for her upcoming, cricket based film Chakda Xpress, in Mumbai.

“Yes, it is true that Anushka has started shooting the last schedule of Chakda Xpress. She has been shooting non-stop for the film for the past few months. Anushka has put in months of preparation to get into the skin of the celebrated fast bowler. She now has a gruelling schedule in Mumbai,” said a source.

Chakda Xpress is conceived as a Netflix film and is based on the life of Jhulan, one of the fastest female pacers in the history of world cricket. The upcoming film will focus on the cricketer’s life, her struggles and wins, and how she pursued her passion for cricket. Having a hold of world record for highest number of wickets taken by a woman in an international career, Jhulan captained the Indian women’s national cricket team and was issued an Indian postage stamp in her honour, in 2018.

In another development, it was revealed that actor Dibyendu Bhattacharya will be seen essaying the role of the coach in the film. Dibyendu recently completed the Kolkata schedule of the film in his home city.
