The creators of ‘Jersey’ have decided to postpone the release of the film starring Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur indefinitely due to an increase in COVID cases and the closure of cinemas in the city. Following their announcement, there were rumours that the film might be released on an online platform.
But the makers dismissed the reports of OTT release. In an official statement, the makers shared, “In view of the current circumstances and new covid guidelines we have decided to postpone the theatrical release of our film Jersey. We have received immense love from you all so far and want to thank you all for everything. Until then everyone please stay safe and healthy, and wishing you all the best for the new year ahead!! Team Jersey!!”
Speaking about the movie, Shahid had told ETimes in an interview, “I have seen a lot of cricket as I am a huge cricket buff. You cannot be as good as a professional cricketer playing at the international level, you can’t get there. The idea was just to get the personality of a cricketer in my character. The story of ‘Jersey’ is being told with a lot of emotion. That’s why people would like to see this film, else they would like to see a match. The film is an in-depth drama which gives you an understanding of what can go on inside a sportsperson.”
