    Anushka Sharma is prepping extensively for her upcoming sports biographical drama Chakda Xpress. The actress will be stepping into the shoes of cricketer Jhulan Goswami. In a recent interview, Anushka revealed whether she is also taking cricketing tips from her husband Virat Kohli as a part of her prep.

    Talking about the same, Anushka Sharma spoke to Harper’s Bazaar saying that she only consults her husband Virat Kohli for batting tips instead of bowling since he is not a coach. The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress said, “Yes, we definitely discuss my progress. Whenever I've had a good day learning, I like to share my videos with Virat, to get his feedback. Luckily, he's not a bowler so I listen to my coach more. But I do turn to Virat for batting tips."

    Furthermore, Anushka Sharma called playing cricket to be physically straining and revealed that she had a lot of discussions with Virat Kohli regarding his craft. The Jab Harry Met Sejal actress said, “I also understand how physically draining it is. I remember when Virat would sometimes come to see me on a film set, and he would watch us on late-night shoots or in very cold places, he would be bewildered and wonder how we were able to do it. Now, I talk to him about the things that he's been doing for so many years".

    Anushka Sharma further said that she understands the plight of working women better now after she is juggling her work along with balancing motherhood with her daughter Vamika. The actress said, “Striking for 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."
