Anushka Sharma is prepping for her next project Chakda Xpress and how. The actress, on Friday, shared a clipping from her prep session. In the video, Anushka can be seen practicing in the field and she can also be seen doing some workout routines. Sharing the video, she captioned it: "Get-Sweat-Go! Chakda Xpress prep getting hard and intense as we are counting days." The film is based on the life of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami, in which Anushka Sharma plays the titular role.
