Jersey remake - About the film and cast
According to reports, Jersey is set in and around Chandigarh during the mid-’90s. The film will be shot at real locations, and a part of the shoot which had to be shot outdoors and on live locations has already been shot last December.
The film will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who has also helmed the original film. The plot follows the journey of a failed cricketer who looks to revive his career and pursue his ambitions.
Jersey will star Mrunal Thakur as Shahid Kapoor's love interest and Pankaj Kapur will play his mentor. Presented by Allu Aravind and produced by Aman Gill and Dil Raju, the film is scheduled to release on 28 August 2020.
