It’s official. Shahid Kapoor will star in the Hindi remake of Jersey. The film will be directed by Gowtham Tinnanauri, who also helmed the 2019 Telugu original. The Hindi version is being produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill, and Dil Raju. The film is scheduled for release on August 28, 2020.
“I'm really looking forward to remaking my film Jersey in Hindi and taking it to national audiences and there is no one better than Shahid Kapoor to recreate the magic of the original for Hindi audiences,” Gowtham said.
Released in April, Jersey starred Nani as a talented cricketer who returns to the pitch in his mid-30s to fulfill his son’s wish for an Indian cricket team jersey. The film marked the Telugu debut of Shraddha Srinath, and also starred Harish Kalyan, Sanusha, and Sathyaraj.
Shahid Kapoor was recently seen in the blockbuster Kabir Singh, which incidentally was also the remake of a Telugu film, Arjun Reddy (2017).
