Actress Anushka Sharma is all set to make a smashing comeback in Bollywood as former India captain and fast bowler, Jhulan Goswami in Chakda Xpress. The actress is returning to films after 3 years and post embracing motherhood. In a recent interview, Anushka opened up about returning to the showbiz world after giving birth to daughter Vamika. She stated that she feels that people don’t understand the life and emotions of a working mother, because of the male-dominated world.
Pinkvilla quoted Anushka as saying, “Striking a work-life balance is certainly harder for women. I don’t think people understand the life and emotions of a working mother, because the world is so male-dominated. Heck, I’m a woman; even I didn’t understand it till I became a mother. Today, I have so much more respect and love for women, and such a strong sense of sisterhood. I’ve always spoken up for women, but to feel love and compassion for the cause makes it so much more powerful.” ALSO READ: Virat Kohli's Oh-So-Expensive Gifts For Wifey Anushka Sharma; From Diamond Necklace Worth Rs 5 Crore To Solitaire Ring Worth Rs 1 Crore
The Sultan actress added that she hopes working women receive more support in their workplaces. She wishes everyone to work collectively to pay more attention to the fact that nurturing a child is important for the world at large. Furthermore, speaking about work culture in Bollywood, Anushka asserted “My industry is all about, ‘run, run, run’—it’s a rat race, and you simply have to be part of it. But I’m more than a rat in a rat race. I want to enjoy my life. I enjoy acting in films, I enjoy being in a room full of creative people, discussing ideas, coming up with ways of doing a scene, and thinking about how the audience will react to it. It’s all so pleasurable; I never want to give it up.”
‘Chakda Xpress’ will be seen Anushka playing the role of former Indian women's team captain Jhulan Goswami. The sports drama will release on Netflix.
The PK actress was last seen in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero, which was released in 2018.
