Shahid Kapoor To Start Shooting For “Jersey” On December 2

Mohnish Singh |Nov 25, 2019

Shahid Kapoor was last seen in Kabir Singh which became an instant blockbuster at the box-office. Just like Kabir Singh, his next Jersey is also a remake of a Telugu film.

Last seen in Kabir Singh (2019), Shahid Kapoor is now gearing up to kick-start his next film Jersey. Just like Kabir Singh, which was an official remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy (2017), his next is also a remake of the superhit Telugu film Jersey. The original movie starred Nani in the lead role. Since the Telugu film was a massive hit at the box-office, all eyes are now on Shahid Kapoor as the actor gets into the shoes of Nani in its remake.

Shahid Kapoor started preparing for his role in the month of October. The actor has been practising cricket to play his part flawlessly ever since. Last week, actress Mrunal Thakur, who was most recently seen in Batla House (2019), came onboard to play the female lead in the film opposite Kapoor.

The latest update on the much-awaited project is that the entire team is flying off to Chandigarh where the first shooting schedule will kick-start on 2nd December. The story of the film unfolds in and around Chandigarh in the 90s and hence, the makers have decided to shoot the film on real locations. The cast and crew plan to start their shooting schedule at a cricket stadium in the city. Shahid Kapoor and the rest of the cast and crew will be based out of Chandigarh for the next few months.

Mt IgShahid will start shooting from December 2 and will continue the shoot till 30th. The team will then take a four – five-day break for New Year and then resume shoot in Chandigarh for the rest of the month. There is going to be a lot of movement from the team’s side in and out of Chandigarh in the coming months,” says a source close to the development.

The remake is being directed by South Indian filmmaker Gowtam Tinnanauri who also helmed the original film. Allu Aravind, Aman Gill and Dil Raju are jointly bankrolling the project. Jersey is scheduled to release on August 28, 2020.
