Anushka Sharma has finally made a debut to the OTT world and has returned to the big screen after almost three-year break. The actress, known for her versatile acting skills, was last seen in ‘Zero’ in 2018.

On January 6, Netflix released a teaser for Anushka’s latest film, ‘Chakda Xpress’, in which she will play former Indian women’s team captain Jhulan Goswami. The film’s teaser had mixed reactions from netizens. While some were thrilled to see Anuskha after three years, others were unsatisfied by her brownface and Bengali accent.

‘Chakda Xpress’, as observed by the teaser, is a biopic with an astonishing plot, recounting the wonderful journey of Jhulan Goswami, one of the fastest female bowlers in world cricket history.

Anushka shared the minute-long teaser on her official Instagram and Twitter account, stating “Jhulan’s story is truly an underdog story in the history of cricket in India and the film is our celebration of her spirit.”
