Like several Bollywood projects, Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur’s Jersey came to an unexpected halt during the coronavirus pandemic. The film is a remake of a South film of the same name, starring Nani, and features Shahid Kapoor as a professional cricketer.
Post lockdown, the film went on floors again. However, it seems like the team is now facing another roadblock. As per a report in a leading daily, the crew was planning to shoot the remaining schedule in Chandigarh. However, due to the farmers’ protests going on in full flow in those areas, director Gowtam Tinnanuri, felt that it might not be viable to shoot there. Hence, he apparently changed the plan and headed to Dehradun with Shahid and Mrunal Thakur to shoot other scenes. A source close to the project revealed, “Shahid, Mrunal Thakur and the cast will film certain portions in the Uttarakhand capital over the next few days, and will return to Chandigarh in the last leg of the schedule. They have about three days’ work left in the city.”
Jersey is produced by Aman Gill, Dil Raju and Allu Aravind. The release date is yet to be announced.
