On work front, Shahid was last seen in Kabir Singh alongside Kiara Advani. His next is Jersey, a remake of a Telugu blockbuster. For the film, he has also started taking cricket lessons. “It took me some time to decide what to do next after ‘Kabir Singh’. But the minute I saw ‘Jersey’. I knew I wanted it to be my next. It is a wonderful, inspiring and personal human journey that I connected with deeply,” Shahid said in a statement to PTI.
The shoot of the film will start by the end of this month in Chandigarh. The movie will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanauri, who also helmed the critically- acclaimed and commercially successful original. Produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill and Dil Raju, the film is releasing on August 28, 2020.
