Given that the team is likely to return to Chandigarh next month, it seems like the team is ready to pick up things where they left off in March. The unit will resume filming by taking all kinds of safety precautions.

A close source told Mumbai Mirror that they won’t be shooting any cricketing portions, just some dramatic and emotional scenes between Mrunal Thakur and Shahid during the schedule. The source further said that the Kabir Singh actor is all set to hit the pitch again and the has already started brushing up his cricketing skills. And the 15-day schedule which has been planned from the first week of October is going to be one of the last remaining schedules. Post that there will be one more schedule.

The makers are planning to wrap up the film by December and targeted for a 2021 release. Even during the lockdown, the post-production work was going on with teams working remotely from their homes.

Jersey marks the return of Shahid Kapoor on the big screen after Kabir Singh and it is the official remake of Nani’s 2019 hit Telegu film with the same title. After Jersey, Shahid Kapoor will start prepping up for Shashank Khaitan's Yoddha. It will be an action film and it will star Disha Patani alongside Shahid.
