The trailer for Shahid Kapoor’s highly anticipated film Jersey released on Tuesday. Shahid plays a failed cricketer who must go back to the pitch after he makes a promise to his son. Mrunal Thakur plays Shahid’s wife in the film and is the family’s breadwinner. Shahid promises that he’ll get his son a cricket jersey on his birthday without having the money to buy one.


Respite comes as an opportunity to return to cricket and Shahid chooses to do so with the help of his mentor, played by Pankaj Kapur. Shahid must face his past if he wants to meet his son’s expectations and to regain his lost glory and respect. The trailer also features a scene which indicates that Shahid will face a choice between cricket and family.

Jersey is the Hindi remake of the Telugu film with the same name. It’s directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri who also directed the original. The Telugu version starred Nani and Shraddha Srinath in the lead.

Shahid Kapoor had shared the film’s poster on social media with the caption, “IT'S TIME! We have waited to share this emotion with you for 2 years. This story is special. This team is special. This character is special. And the fact that we get to share it on the big screen with you all is special. I don't have words to express my gratitude. I hope you all feel what I felt when I played him. Here we go."

Jersey is scheduled to release theatrically on 31 December.
