Netflix India has announced its next film, Chakda ‘Xpress. The film, starring Anushka Sharma is being produced by Clean Slate Filmz and directed by Prosit Roy, is inspired by the incredible story of Jhulan Goswami.
Tracing the glorious journey of one of the fastest female pacers in the history of world cricket, Jhulan Goswami, as she moves up the ladder despite the countless hindrances posed by misogynistic politics to fulfil her only dream: to play cricket.
“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. This film is a dramatic retelling of several instances that shaped her life and also women’s cricket.“-Anushka Sharma
“Team India is not just the roaring sound of 1.3 billion voices cheering and praying. Sometimes, it is one girl from Chakda playing a game of cricket with her team shaking, screaming for, and rising together when the stumps are finally knocked out.
Now is the time to watch the women shine. It’s our time and we’re here to play.
Today, you see us. Tomorrow, you’ll remember our names.
Join us, as we cheer for Team India and bring to you this story. Chakda Xpress is now filming. Meet you on the field.“-Jhulan Goswami
