Actor Anushka Sharma is all set to make her acting comeback after a gap of over four years. She will be seen in the sports drama Chakda ‘Xpress, in which she will star as the Indian cricketer Jhulan Goswami. Anushka is hard at work on the film and has occasionally shared glimpses of her preparations on social media. Anushka’s husband, cricketer Virat Kohli, said that his respect for Anushka’s dedication knew no bounds after watching her train for the role.
In an episode of FTB On the Road, the interviewer joked that while Virat is acting in commercials, ‘bhabiji is playing cricket. Virat laughed and said, “She is finding the process challenging, and she’s taken on the challenges beautifully and preparing well. Just learning to bowl for the first time in your life at this stage is something that people can’t quite gather how difficult it is…”
Virat said that his perception of making films was very different before he met Anushka and saw her on set. “When I met her and I saw what it actually takes to compile a film and to be in that space and character… When I saw behind-the-scenes, the kind of hard work it takes, I was like, ‘Boss, hats off, respect’. You can only be an actor at that level if you are madly passionate about it. I can’t imagine myself shooting for 18 hours, or 20 hours. Retake pe retake kar rahe ho, weather is tough, you’re shooting in hard conditions… It’s very inspiring.”
