Virat Kohli’s respect for Anushka Sharma increased after watching her train for Chakda Xpress

Anushka Sharma is hard at work on Chakda 'Xpress, her first film in over four years, in which she'll play cricketer Jhulan Goswami.

Anushka is hard at work on the film, The Sui Dhaaga actress is currently filming for Chakda Xpress in the United Kingdom, and often shares glimpses of her personal and professional life with her fans on her social media handle. 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, 20 hours. Retake pe retake kar rahe ho, weather is tough, you’re shooting in hard conditions… It’s very inspiring.”

Chakda ‘Xpress is directed by Prosit Roy, who has worked with Anushka on the horror film Pari and the crime drama Paatal Lok. The film will be released on Netflix.
