Shahid Kapoor, and his team of the upcoming film, ‘Jersey,’ have managed to wrap up filming despite restrictions from the current Covid-19 pandemic.
The star took to Instagram to share a picture and wrote, “It’s a film wrap on #jersey …. 47 days of shoot during covid. Just unbelievable. I am so proud of the entire team. It’s nothing short of a miracle. I want to thank each and every one from the unit for coming to set every day, putting themselves at risk and doing what we all love doing. Telling stories that touch hearts and make a difference. Jersey is a story that speaks of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The triumph of an indomitable spirit. If there was ever a time I could connect with the underlying spirit of a film this was it. As we all fight through this pandemic. Let’s always remember. This shall pass too. Here’s to my best filmmaking experience yet. Here’s to Jersey … we shall overcome !!!! @gowtamnaidu @mrunalofficial2016 @geethaarts @amanthegill @srivenkateshwaracreations.” The picture showed Kapoor standing with his back to the camera inside a flood-lit stadium.
The shooting of the movie had been halted in March earlier this year due to lockdown being enforced around the world. The team had been shooting in Chandigarh and Mohali. After resuming work months later, the team shot extensively in Uttarakhand and later in Chandigarh to finish the film.
‘Jersey’ is the official Hindi remake of the Telugu hit of the same name from 2019. The original stars Nani in the lead and tells the story of a failed cricketer who decides to make one final bid to play for India, after his young son expresses a desire to own a team jersey. Both the films have been directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri.
The remake also stars Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur and is due for release next year.
