After a lengthy wait, Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey was released in theatres on April 22. However, it was slammed by Yash’s KGF: Chapter 2 wave, which is presently ruling the box office. Jersey picked up the tempo after a slow start. The sports drama, directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, also stars Mrunal Thakur.
PACE IS PICKED UP BY JERSEY
Jersey, starring Shahid Kapoor, had a rough start at the box office. It brought in Rs 4 crore. However, on the second day, the picture grew and earned Rs 5.50 crore, according to trade expert Ramesh Bala’s preliminary estimates. It’s apparent that Shahid’s film’s figures were influenced by filmmaker Prashanth Neel’s KGF: Chapter 2.
SHAHID KAPOOR: WE REDISCOVERED JERSEY, AND I MADE THE CHARACTER MINE
The film Jersey is a Hindi adaptation of Nani’s Telugu film of the same name. Shahid Kapoor discussed his approach to the film and his character, Arjun Talwar, in an interview. He stated that they were all inspired by the movies they viewed. They wished to target a different audience. They discovered it again. And he has made that persona his in every way possible, and he has total ownership of him and is quite protective of him. Nani, on the other hand, was their first character. As a result, he will always be respected.
Jersey has the support of Allu Entertainment, Dil Raju Productions, Sithara Entertainments, and Brat Films.
