PK actress Anushka Sharma is ready to play cricketer Jhulan Goswami in her upcoming film titled Chakda Xpress but the reaction to the announcement video has not been universally positive and draws criticisms also.

PK actress shared the first look of her from the film on her social media platforms and wrote, “Chakda Xpress is a special film because it is a story of tremendous sacrifice….and an underdog story in the history of cricket, and the film is our celebration of her spirit.”

As we all know, she is returning to acting after four years. Also, actor Farhan Akhtar took to her Twitter handle and congratulated and praised the entire team of the film. One of her fans wrote, “Finallyyyyyyy she’s back!!!! Screaming in joy. Dear Anushka mam, you are worth the wait. #AnushkaSharma #ChakdaExpress.”

Also, many criticized Anushka’s casting as the video dropped, she looks nothing like Jhulan, and her bronzed face and Bengali accent drew a lot of criticism. One of the users wrote, “I love Anushka, but Konkona would have been perfect for the film.” Another wrote, “Why take a supremely lighter slim actress and get her so bronzed up? Beyond me.”

Meanwhile, the film is directed by Prosit Roy and produced by Anushka Sharma’s clean slate filmz.
