Massive success of Kabir Singh has put Shahid Kapoor on a pedestal. Taking his time, Shahid has moved to his next project now. It is a sports drama titled Jersey that is scheduled to release in 2021. As fans of Shahid Kapoor, we are pretty excited about the movie. In this movie, Super 30 actress Mrunal Thakur has been casted opposite Shahid. Sharing her excitement about working with the Udta Punjab actor, Mrunal has said “I won’t stop praising Shahid because he is so fabulous as a performer. Every time he creates magic on screen and I just kind of wonder ‘how do you do it?’ I make sure to sit in front of the monitor when it’s his shot so that I don’t miss out on that X factor that he has.”
Regarding her learning experience while working with Shahid, Super 30 actress has said “I think Shahid Kapoor for me is like a learning. I have learnt so many things from him on the sets. I really appreciate the universe for making it happen. It was like a dream for my sister and me, we used to cut his pictures and used to get scolding from my parents. Now, it has finally happened and it’s really nice to share all these moments with Shahid. He would say ‘What are you saying?!’ It was really sweet.”
Since the budget of the movie has gone overboard due to COVID-19, Shahid Kapoor has even decreased his remuneration to support the makers. Padmavaat actor Shahid Kapoor is quite confident about the success at box office. Pankaj Kapur is expected to be seen in an important role as well. For the uninitiated, Jersey is a remake of a Telugu movie starring Nani and Shraddha Srinath with the same name. Both the original and remake have been directed by Gowtham Tinnanauri. Dil Raju, Allu Aravind and Aman Gill are producing the movie in collaboration.
