Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey Gets OTT Release Date

- Cine-goers lauded the story and Shahid's performance in the film.
- It is a story about an ex-cricketer struggling to make ends meet.
Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur starrer Jersey, which was released in theatres on April 22, is all set to digitally premiere on Netflix. The heartwarming cricket cum emotional tale will start streaming from 20th May.
It is the remake of the Telugu film of the same name which won two National Awards in 2019. It starred Nani in the lead. Hindi Jersey was delayed due to the Covid-19 related problems. The Hindi version, however, did not set any river on fire when it released in theatres. It had an average run, even though Shahid Kapoor’s performance was noted and talked about.
Jersey is the story of an ex-cricketer struggling to make ends meet, who wants to fulfill his child’s wish of getting a jersey, but in the process, he comes face to face with his heroic past and is forced to decide if he will rise to the occasion and become a symbol of hope or continue to live a life as a loser.
The Hindi remake was helmed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who handled the Telugu original too. Pankaj Kapur is also in the cast. Earlier this year we had the Tamil film Mahaan which had Vikram and his son Dhruv Vikram having a go at each other. It was followed by Thar a few days back. And this week we will have Acharya streaming on Amazon Prime Video, and the Telugu film has Chiranjeevi and his son Ram Charan sharing screen space.
