Past Indian women’s cricket team captain Jhulan Goswami on Tuesday said a biopic will be made on her with the working title ‘Chakdah Express. She will be the first female cricketer on whom a biopic will be made. A biopic on former men’s team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been made while a docu-drama on batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar released earlier this year.
She helped India reach the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup earlier this year when the eves lost to England by nine runs. She took three wickets in the summit clash. The biopic, to be made in Hindi, will be directed by Susanta Das.
The 34-year old, who hails from Chakdaha, a city and a municipality in Kalyani subdivision of Nadia district, is the highest wicket-taker in One-day Internationals (ODIs) with 195 scalps in 164 matches.
