Anushka Sharma is having a hard time preparing for Chakda Xpress: ‘I wish I had played cricket growing up…’

Actress Anushka Sharma previously shared that she was taking batting tips from her husband and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli About her upcoming movie Chakda Xpress. However, this did not seem to make life easy for Anushka. On Wednesday, the actress shared a selfie on Instagram to express her regret at not playing cricket while growing up. Sharing a photo of her on her Instagram stories, Anushka wrote, “Kaash bachpan mein kuch toh cricket khela hota, toh aaj aisi haalat na hoti. (I wish I could play cricket growing up. Today, I wouldn’t have struggled so much.)”

Anushka announced the Chakda Xpress earlier this year. The film marks her return to the silver screen after embracing motherhood. In the movie, she will be shown playing the role of cricketer Jhulan Goswami. The actress earlier revealed in an Instagram post why the movie and character are so special to her. “Golan has had a very uncertain fighting career in cricket and has remained passionate about making her country proud. She has strived to change the stereotype that a woman cannot make a career out of playing cricket in India so that the next generation of girls will have a better playing field. Her life is living testimony that passion and perseverance triumph over any or all adversity and the Chakda Express is the most defining view of the non-pink world of women’s cricket at the time.”

Earlier this month, in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Anushka Sharma revealed that she and Virat Kohli are discussing her preparation for the film. “Whenever I have a good day learning, I like to share my videos with Virat, to get his feedback. Fortunately, he is not a football player so I listen to my coach more. But I turn to Virat for batting tips,” she said.

Chakda Xpress will be broadcast exclusively on Netflix.
