Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has been missing from the silver screen for almost 2 ½ years. After her last film Zero (2018), she did not appear in any movies. Despite of her absence, her popularity is still intact as her fans have been waiting for her.
In the starting of 2020, it came to light that Anushka would be playing the main lead in the biopic of Jhulan Goswami who is a famous cricketer of the Indian team. In January last year, Anushka’s pictures wearing the Indian cricket team jersey at Eden Gardens cricket stadium in Kolkata in the presence of Jhulan went viral.
It was being said that both of the ladies shot for an announcement video of the upcoming movie. Since those pictures were released, the movie has been kept on the backburner. There was no news on the film which led many to believe that the film had got shelved.
However, trade sources revealed that the script of the movie produced by Sony Pictures is under development.
A source informed, “It is not shelved for sure. The film is under development and in the scripting stage. Once the script is approved, the director would be finalized after which Anushka would start the prep. And only then the film will go on floors.”
While talking about the shooting schedule, the source said, “Anushka is enjoying motherhood right now and she and Vamika are also accompanying Virat on his cricket tournaments. So the film won’t go on floors before 2021-end. But it’ll definitely be something to watch out for. Jhulan’s journey has been inspiring and moreover, Anushka is sure to do complete justice to the part.”
This year on 11th January, Anushka gave birth to a baby girl who was named as Vamika by her and her cricketer hubby Virat Kohli.
