Talking about how Jersey remake happened, Gowtam said, “Ten days after Jersey got released, I met Shahid Kapoor. Kabir Singh had not released yet. He watched Jersey. He liked it very much and expressed his interest to work in the remake. At that time, I had no idea, whether this project will happen or who will produce it. I was not even sure whether I will get to direct the Hindi remake. Later, I sent him a message appreciating his performance in Kabir Singh. He called me back and told me that Jersey Hindi remake was happening. I enjoyed working with Shahid Kapoor. He is a very dedicated actor.”
