Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur starrer ‘Jersey’ was all set to release on 31st December, but the makers recently declared to hold the release. As per reports the makers said, “In view of the current circumstances and new covid guidelines we have decided to postpone the theatrical release of our film Jersey. We have received immense love from you all so far and want to thank you all for everything. Until then everyone please stay safe and healthy, and wishing you all the best for the new year ahead!! Team Jersey!!”
Gowtham Tinnanuri directorial film, Jersey is a remake of a Telugu drama by the same name. In an interview with ETimes, Shahid stated, “I have seen a lot of cricket as I am a huge cricket buff. You cannot be as good as a professional cricketer playing at international level, you can’t get there. The idea was just to get the personality of a cricketer in my character. The story of ‘Jersey’ is being told with a lot of emotion. That’s why the people would like to see this film, else they would like to see a match. The film is an in-depth drama which gives you an understanding of what can go on inside a sportsperson.”
However, there is not confirmation of the film’s next release date. The makers of ‘Jersey’ are said to be in talks with an OTT platform for its digital release.
