Mrunal Thakur to star opposite Shahid Kapoor in Jersey remake

The remake of the Telugu film will be directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri

Published: 19th November 2019

Mrunal Thakur will star opposite Shahid Kapoor in the Hindi remake of Jersey. The actor, who made her feature debut in 2018’s Love Sonia, was recently seen in Super 30 and Batla House

“After Shahid came on board, I only had Mrunal on my mind for the lead opposite him,” says director Gowtham Tinnanuri. “I loved her performance and confidence in Super 30 opposite Hrithik Roshan and felt she’s perfectly fit for the part in Jersey and will do full justice to the role.” 

Mrunal says she was ‘bowled over’ by the original Telugu film, starring Nani and Shraddha Srinath, and is excited to star in its remake. “So deep was the effect of the film on me that I couldn’t get it out of my heart the whole night. I immediately watched it again the next day. I can’t wait for Hindi audiences to experience it,” she adds.

The Jersey remake is set for release on August 28, 2020.

Mrunal will also be seen in Ghost Stories and Toofan. She essays the character of Sivagami in the upcoming Netflix series, Baahubali: Before the Beginning.
