Jhulan Goswami biopic: Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma is all set to portray the role of Indian women pacer, Jhulan Goswami, in her upcoming biopic. The latter is the highest wicket-taker for India and the best fast bowler to have played for the country. She has been a vital cog for the team across formats in the last 2 decades. Anushka Sharma will be portraying her journey on the big screen.

As per a report from Bollywood Hungama, the movie is set to hit the theatres by the end of 2021. The movie is reportedly in the scripting stage and a director will be finalized to begin preparations for the shoot.

Jhulan Goswami biopic: “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 preparation.

“Anushka is enjoying motherhood right now and she and Vamika are also accompanying Virat on his cricket tours. 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 role,” the source added.
