After surviving three major COVID-19 scares and lockdowns, Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur’s ‘Jersey’ was all set to release this coming week, April 14. However, the buzz is that the film will be released a week later.
The makers have come to this decision looking at the tight position of cinemas, and hence it has been shifted ahead. Reportedly, the stakeholders took the call late last night.

Speaking of ‘Jersey’, the film is the official Hindi remake of the Telugu film of the same name. Helmed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, the story revolves around a talented but failed cricketer who aspires to make a comeback in the field, to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfil his son’s wish for a jersey as a gift. The film also stars Pankaj Kapur in a pivotal role. Source
