While the film will also showcase a father-son relationship, we are looking forward to seeing who will essay the role of Shahid’s son in this one.
I’m really looking forward to remaking my film Jersey in Hindi and taking it to national audiences and there is no one better than Shahid Kapoor to recreate the magic of the original for Hindi audiences.
Shahid manages to mould himself into every character he essays on the 70 mm and we for sure can’t wait to witness this one. August 2020, please come soon!
