Actor Shahid Kapoor has finished shooting for the upcoming film Jersey. He says it is unbelievable how the crew shot for 47 days during Covid-19.
Shahid posted a picture on Instagram where his back is towards the camera and he is looking out at a cricket stadium.
Along with the picture, he wrote: “It’s a film wrap on #jersey …. 47 days of the shoot during covid. Just unbelievable. I am so proud of the entire team. It’s nothing short of a miracle. I want to thank each and everyone from the unit for coming to set every day, putting themselves at risk, and doing what we all love doing.”
He added: “Telling stories that touch hearts and make a difference. Jersey is a story that speaks of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The triumph of an indomitable spirit. If there was ever a time I could connect with the underlying spirit of a film this was it.
“As we all fight through this pandemic. Let’s always remember. This shall pass too. Here’s to my best filmmaking experience yet. Here’s to Jersey … we shall overcome !!!! @gowtamnaidu @[email protected] @[email protected]”
The sports drama is a Hindi remake of a Telugu hit of the same name. The Hindi version is directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who had also helmed the 2019 original.
The story is about a talented but failed cricketer named Arjun, who decides to make a comeback in his late thirties and play for India, in order to fulfill his son’s wish.
