Jersey became a huge hit in 2019. Telugu star Nani played the role of a retired cricketer who makes a comeback for the sake for his son in the movie and it received widespread acclaim upon its release.
During an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Nani, Jersey director Gowtam Tinnanuri and actress Shraddha Srinath spoke about the positive response the movie had coming its way. Nani also expressed his enthusiasm about the Hindi remake of the film with Shahid Kapoor in lead role and said he was happy that Jersey will get a wider audience base once it is made in Hindi.
About Jersey Hindi remake, Nani said, "I am so happy that the movie is happening in Hindi and Shahid is doing it because this story is reaching bigger audience."
In Jersey, Shahid will play a 40-plus cricketer. He was last seen in remake of Telugu movie Arjun Reddy-- Kabir Singh. Not only did the movie become one of the biggest and most controversial hits of 2019, it also propelled Shahid into the big leagues and actress Kiara Advani too became a household name with her role as Preeti. Kabir Singh recently completed one year since release.

To all those who gave so much overwhelming love to such a complex, conflicted character. Thank you. #kabirsingh was never just a film to me.. it was an emotional arc that was raw.. bare.. unabashed .. honest .. fearless .. REAL!! In a time where people are quick to judge (others not themselves ) you understood him. You understood our interpretation of the angst of a broken heart. This one will always be special. So so special. And it would just not have been possible without @kiaraaliaadvani , @sandeepreddy.vanga , @muradkhetani and @ashwinvarde @bhushankumar @santha_dop , Payal and so so many others. Thank you all once again. And remember. Keep it real and make it count. Be kind. Be good. Spread positivity. And always believe. 🙌💕👊
