Actress Anushka Sharma has been trending since yesterday after pictures of her with Ms. Goswami surfaced on Instagram fan pages, prompting speculation that the biopic had finally found its reel Jhulan. No formal announcement had made yet but the Internet certainly cannot think a good reason for the actress and the former women's cricket team captain to be hanging out together.
In the pictures, we can see Anushka Sharma and Jhulan Goswami walking around on the cricket pitch at what appears to be the Eden Gardens in Kolkata with cameras in front of them. The Sui Dhaaga actress was last seen sporting the old Indian cricket team jersey in the pictures. Despite the lack of official confirmation, the viral photos have got fans excited already.
According to a Bollywood Hungama report, Anushka Sharma was in Kolkata on Saturday for the shooting and was on sets till late night and returned to Mumbai on Sunday. Anushka had indeed spotted at the Mumbai airport on Sunday morning. Some unconfirmed reports from 2019 state that the biopic is being directed by filmmaker Prosit Roy, who previously worked on Anushka's film, Pari.
This will be Anushka Sharma's first biopic - if indeed she has been cast - but the 31-year-old actress is no stranger to sports films, having played a wrestler in Salman Khan's Sultan to great acclaim in 2016. Anushka Sharma was last seen in the movie Zero by filmmaker Anand L Rai alongside stars Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan.
