After the failure of Anushka's last release - Zero, in 2018, the rumours were rife that the actor is going to take time only to return with the biopic in which she essays the role of the popular all-rounder cricketer. According to reports, on Saturday, Anushka will land in Kolkata and she will go straight to Eden Gardens for the shoot.
The actress also received a warm welcome from Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) delegation who presented flowers to her along with some traditional Bengali candies. A source close to the unit told us that it was a test shoot that may be used to create a teaser for the film.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli recently celebrated the new year 2020 with a holiday in Switzerland. The production house was also very choosy about the 10 other players. "They wanted them to be actual cricketers, between 5'3" and 5'4" in height". Anushka entered the ground dressed in the Team India blues around 9.30 pm. Actor Taapsee Pannu has been signed directly to play the athlete within the movie which is directed by means of Rahul Dholakia. She also sported a similar hairstyle.
The report also said that one of the participants in the shoot was former Bengal cricketer and now an umpire Beauty Chakraborty. "Anushka was very friendly during the shoot".
However, the actress seems to have finally made a decision to return to the silver screen with her very first biologist. "Apart from her bowling action, Anushka constantly rehearsed the walking and warm-up style with Jhulandi", she said.
If reports by Bollywood Hungama are to be believed, Anushka shot until 4 pm and is expected to shoot for another portion later on January 25.
