Jersey is a tale about a father named Arjun. He is a talented but a failed cricketer, who decides to enter into the field of cricket in his late thirties driven by a wish to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfill his son’s wish for an Indian jersey as a gift.
The film is Shahid’s second Hindi remake of Telugu film where he will play the lead role. First was ‘Kabir Singh’, the remake of Telugu hit ‘Arjun Reddy’.
Whether or not the Hindi remake of Jersey will have the same impact on Shahid’s career as his last super hit Kabir Singh is yet to be noticed. Further details on the cast and production of the movie are awaited.
