Jersey managed to grab the attention of audiences and critics for its unique cast and offbeat storyline. The story of the movie revolves around the life of a failed cricketer who decides to revive his career and pursue his ambition. Jersey delivers a heart-warming story, which places emphasis on the relationship between a father and his son. Apart from impressing the critics, the sports entertainer also roared at the box-office down as the movie raked in a business of more than ₹48 crores.
Shahid Kapoor is seemingly leaving no stone unturned to add authenticity to his character, as he is currently undergoing vigorous training sessions to portray the character of a cricketer. If the reports are to be believed, the actor took 70 days of cricket training to fit into the shoes of the character. In an interview with a leading daily, the director of the movie, Gowtham confessed that he was excited to direct the remake of the South Indian film. Tinnanauri also added that Shahid Kapoor was the first choice for the movie, as no one could recreate the positive impact Jersey created on its audience down South.
