The film marks Shahid’s first on-screen performance after the success of his blockbuster hit Kabir Singh. Talking about the film, Shahid recently told a news agency, “After I did Kabir Singh, I wanted to find a story which can give the audience a complete experience. People do come with expectations after you have given them an experience that stays with them, which Kabir Singh was. I have worked very hard to find a subject which had the emotional potential and the story to stay true to people’s expectations.”
“I am very proud of Jersey, it is a film that is close to my heart because I have grown through many phases in my career. I have films where I have played crazy characters, like Tommy Singh in Udta Punjab. If this film can make people feel the way I felt, it will give them a lot of hope. When I saw the film, it made me feel that I can chase my dreams,” he added.
Jersey is the Hindi remake of Nani’s Telugu film of the same title. Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, it is about a cricket enthusiast whose dreams of pursuing a career in cricket are fulfilled in his 40s due to his son. He tries to earn his child’s respect and not be considered a failure by him like everyone else. Shahid had wrapped up the shoot of the film in December 2020. Jersey is produced by Allu Entertainment, Dil Raju Production, Sithara Entertainments, and Brat Films.
