Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’ may still be under production, but it is already earning a lot of trade interest as distributor Ramesh Sippy just bought the theatrical rights for a handsome amount.
Although the rate has not been publicly disclosed, producer Aman Gill suggested that the price was high enough to be considered a vote of confidence, “We always knew Shahid was a bankable star and ‘Jersey’ a wonderful film, but to have the All India Theatrical rights bought at a fantastic price by a distributor at such an early stage of production only reconfirmed our belief.”, Box Office India reported.
Sippy is relying on Kapoor’s bankability to sell a superhit Telugu story to a new audience, “I’ve seen Shahid grow from strength to strength over the years and after watching the original Telugu film ‘Jersey’ (2019), it only reaffirms my belief that he completely understands the pulse of the audience. I am proud to be associated as the All India Distributor of ‘Jersey’.”
‘Jersey’ will release on August 28, 2020.
