Jersey Movie Story
After the massive success of Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor is ready to win hearts in the role of a cricketer in the Hindi remake of the Telugu film, Jersey. Written and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, a remake of his 2019 Telugu film of the same title, the movie also stars Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur in the pivotal roles. The film is produced by Aman Gill, Dil Raju, and Suryadevara Naga Vamsi.
The story is about a thirty-six-year-old cricketer who stopped his cricketing career ten years ago, now aiming to play for Indian team. “Jersey” narrates the story of a talented but failed cricketer, who decides to return to the field of cricket in his late 30s and aspires to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfil his son’s wish for a jersey as a gift.
The movie has been shot in Chandigarh and Uttarakhand but was haulted due to coronavirus pandemic. Shahid took to social media and shared that the team completed the shoot in about 47 days with safety protocols in place. “It’s a film wrap on Jersey… 47 days of shoot during covid. Just unbelievable. I am so proud of the entire team. It’s nothing short of a miracle,” Kapoor posted on Twitter.
“I want to thank each and every one from the unit for coming set every day, putting themselves at risk and doing what we all love doing. Telling stories that touch hearts and make a difference,” he added.
Speculations began as soon as the movie was released in Telugu, later it was reported that Shahid Kapoor has been roped in to star as the lead actor while Shraddha Kapoor was considered for the female lead. Later it was confirmed that Tollywood actress Rashmika Mandanna will make her Hindi film debut with this movie but soon Mrunal Thakur replaced her. Shahid’s father Pankaj Kapur was roped in to portray Coach Murthy.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Girish Johar revealed that Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey will release in cinema halls on November 5, 2021. He wrote, “Diwali Bigggiiieee!!! #ShahidKapoor’s #Jersey to release in theatres Revolving hearts📽 on 5th November 2021!! @shahidkapoor @mrunal0801 and #PankajKapur is presented by #AlluAravind, directed by #GowtamTinnanuri #Diwali2021”.

A journey I am so very proud of. This one for the TEAM”.
“Diwali is the biggest family festival of the year, and is the perfect time to bring ‘Jersey,’ a family sports drama to audiences, a time when all families can come together to celebrate this journey,” Gill said.
