Pankaj Kapur to play Shahid Kapoor’s mentor in Jersey

The father-son duo was last seen together in Shaandaar

Published: 05th December 2019

Shahid Kapoor’s father Pankaj Kapur has joined the cast of Jersey. The film is a remake of this year's Telugu hit of the same name.

Shahid has started prepping for the cricket-based film and will begin shooting in Chandigarh next week. This is the second time Pankaj and Shahid will be sharing screen space. They were last seen together in Vikas Bahl’s Shaandaar (2015). Pankaj also directed Shahid in Mausam (2011).

“Pankaj plays a mentor-like figure in the film to Shahid, and is a strong pillar of support to Shahid’s character during his unexpected comeback journey,” says a source.

Talking about joining Jersey, Pankaj Kapur says, “I am very excited to be part of the film. Jersey is a very strong story and is driven by emotions. Working with Shahid has always been very interesting and I have always admired his ability to portray emotions beautifully.”

Director Gowtam Tinnanuri is thrilled to be working with a prolific actor like Pankaj. He says, “Pankaj sir is such a great actor and we have all grown up seeing his work. To be able to direct him is a great honor and I know that he will fit the role of a mentor perfectly.”

The Hindi version is being presented by Allu Aravind and produced by Aman Gill and Dil Raju. The film is slated for release on August 28, 2020.
