Shahid Kapoor has always brought a diverse range of characters to the audience’s delight. From Jab We Met to Udta Punjab, the actor’s filmography is replete with characters that are far off from each other. Next in line is his sports drama titled Jerseywhich is a remake of a Telugu film of the same name directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri.
The film is about a cricketer’s true grit and how he battles the odds. Recently, Nani who played the lead in the original Telugu version spoke with a tabloid and gushed over how excited he is for the Hindi remake and praised Shahid.
Nani revealed that the director left him stunned and how happy he is with the final output of Jersey’s Hindi version which looks very promising. Sharing director Gowtam’s personality, Nani shared that he is a man of very few words, even if he likes something he doesn’t say much even though Nani understands with the look on his face, but when Gowtam told him how happy he was with the output of the Hindi version, Nani said he can already imagine how brilliantly it would have come out as for Gowtam to say it out.
