After doing Kabir Singh, which was the remake of Arjun Reddy, Shahid Kapoor has again agreed to act in the remake of Jersey. Opposite to him will be Shraddha Kapoor who recently disappointed everyone in Saaho.
The remake of the Telugu film Jersey has been announced recently. Also, the star cast names have been revealed. There have been mixed reactions after the revelation and it is really a big question mar whether Shahid and Shraddha will be able to do justice with Jersey or not.
Jersey originally stars Nani and Sraddha Srisanth and is directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri. It is a sports drama that has done brilliantly in southern cinema.
Jersey is the story of a late-blooming cricketer Arjun and his wife and his son. Arjun suffers from inferiority as he could do nothing to prove himself to the world. He, however, decides to prove his worth to his son and goes through intense struggle. Jersey is an emotional roller coaster that has every capability of keeping the audience attached.
With an excellent storyline and first-class acting, Jersey is a gem of a film. No doubt both Shahid and Shraddha are excellent actors but they wl really have to work to make this remake successful.
Shahid had last acted in Kabir Singh which was also a Hindi remake of a Telugu film, Arjun Reddy. Kabir Singh worked too well for Shahid and though it was greatly criticized by some, the box office collections told a different story. But Kabir Singh was an intense and dark role. Here in Jersey, the role is simple and quite effective. shahid will have to go back to his old days to bring out the simplicity and effectiveness of his acting.
On casting Shahid kapoor for Jersey, the director of the film, Gowtam said that, “I’m really looking forward to remaking my film Jersey in Hindi and taking it to national audiences and there is no one better than Shahid Kapoor to recreate the magic of the original for Hindi audiences.”
Moreover, Shraddha’s last film, Saaho was really a disappointment on her part. Jersey may prove to be a game-changer for her if she is able to do her part well. Here in Jersey, Shraddha will get enough space to show her skills and we hope that she takes on the opportunity well.
“Jersey ” in Hindi is being produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill, Dil Raju. The film is scheduled to release on August 28, 2020.
Very soon we will know what Shahid and Shraddha are able to do with this gem.
