For fans of Anushka Sharma, it will surely be a delight to see her back in the game after a hiatus of more than a year from Bollywood, as she is set to star in a sports biopic based on Indian all-rounder and former captain of the Indian women's cricket team, Jhulan Goswami.
Anushka has stepped into the shoes of the former cricketer and is all set to bring the character to life.
Pictures of the actor, walking besides Goswami at Kolkata's Eden Gardens, have been trending and are going viral on social media.

There is no official confirmation, so far, about Anuskha playing Jhulan, however, reports state that Anushka was trying to emulate Goswami's gait, as well as her warm-up style and bowling action.
For the uninitiated, Jhulan was an all-rounder cricketer and former captain of India's national women's cricket team. In August 2018, she announced her retirement from WT20Is. Goswami is also known for both her batting and bowling capabilities.
Going by reports, the film is tentatively titled Chakdah Express and will be directed by Prosit Roy, who had previously directed Pari starring Anushka Sharma.
It will be exciting to see Anushka play the role of a cricketer on the big screen.
