Jersey chronicles the story of a failed cricketer who decides to revive his career and pursue his ambition. Helmed by Gautham Tinnanauri, Jersey promises a heart-warming story and features the relationship between a father and his son. Actor Shahid Kapoor is leaving no stone unturned to add authenticity to his character, as the actor has been a part of several vigorous training sessions to portray the character of a cricketer with grace. The original Telegu film roared at the box office down South, raking in a business of Rs. 48 crore.
Shahid's last movie Kabir Singh was a commercial success at the box office. The movie also starred Kiara Advani. It was directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. However, there were many netizens and a certain section of society who called the film out because of its 'toxic' content. Even months after the film's release, there is a raging debate about the same.
