“It is a really special film because it is essentially a story of tremendous sacrifice. Chakda Xpress is inspired by the life and times of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami and it will be an eye-opener into the world of women’s cricket. At a time when Jhulan decided to become a cricketer and make her country proud on the global stage, it was very tough for women to even think of playing the sport. This film is a dramatic retelling of several instances that shaped her life and also women’s cricket. From support systems, to facilities, to having a stable income from playing the game, to even having a future in cricket very little propelled women of India to take up cricket as a profession (sic),” wrote Anushka.

“Jhulan had a fighting and extremely uncertain cricketing career and she stayed motivated to make her country proud. She strived to change the stereotype that women can’t make a career out of playing cricket in India so that the next generation of girls had a better playing field. Her life is a living testimony that passion and perseverance triumphs over any or all adversities and Chakda Xpress is the most definitive look into the not so rosy world of women’s cricket back then. There is still a lot of work to be done and we have to empower them with the best so that the sport can flourish for women in India. We should all salute Jhulan and her team-mates for revolutionizing women’s cricket in India. Jhulan’s story is truly an underdog story in the history of cricket in India and the film is our celebration of her spirit” concluded the actress.

Shahid Kapoor cuts fees from Rs 31 crore, asks makers not to release Jersey on OTT

Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey, which was scheduled to hit the cinemas on December 31, has been postponed. In view of this, the actor has proposed to take a fee cut from his Rs 31 crore fee and urged the makers not to release the film on OTT.

After several delays, the makers of Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur’s Jersey locked December 31 as the film’s release date. However, just days before it was supposed to hit the theatres, the sports drama’s release go postponed due to the rising Covid and Omicron cases in India. According to reports, Shahid has proposed to take a fee cut from his Rs 31 crore fee so that Jersey isn’t released on OTT, but goes to theatres.

SHAHID KAPOOR WANTS A THEATRICAL RELEASE FOR JERSEY

Jersey trailer shows how Shahid Kapoor’s character chases his lost dream for his son. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the film. Now that its release date has been postponed, producers were considering the OTT route. However, a Bollywood Hungama report reveals that Shahid has decided to take a fee cut if required, so that Jersey goes to theatres,

A source told Bollywood Hungama, “After the rising Covid cases, the team of Jersey had got a prior intimation that Delhi cinema halls might be shut soon. Hence, they had multiple meetings on the future course of action for the film, since their entire marketing campaign had rolled out and there was not much left to even promote. They had discussion with their digital partner, Netflix, who agreed to pay a premium price for a direct to digital premiere on December 31. The offer was lucrative and the producers were of course inclined to that. They were almost sure to give the film to Netflix for a premiere since these are uncertain times and Covid will delay the film by at least 1 to 2 months, adding on to the cost and also reducing the hype around the film. The producers felt, instead of a hike in budget, it’s better to let the viewers experience Jersey on OTT. That’s when the hero, Shahid Kapoor stepped in.

The source further added, “The actor was clear that Jersey deserves a theatrical release. When the makers pointed out the costs, the actor was gracious enough to reduce his remuneration to safeguard the film for theatrical medium. Shahid charged Rs. 31 crore for Jersey and without any hesitation, he told the producer that he will reduce his acting fees to the extent of the additional cost that will pile up on the film due to the delay. If the budget escalates by Rs. 5 crore, he will reduce Rs. 5 crore from his fees. If the budget is escalated by Rs. 10 crore, he will let go off Rs. 10 crore from his fees. For him, Jersey is special and he is confident that the audience will fall in love with the world that they have created. The producers were convinced and that’s how they decided on delaying the release rather than opting for a direct to digital premiere.”
