Shahid Kapoor, who was last seen in Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Kabir Singh is currently prepping up for his next, the Hindi remake of Jersey. The actor had recently attended an award function looking dapper in a zebra print suit paired up with a black shirt. At the award function, the actor spoke on the success of Kabir Singh. He said that he related a lot to the story. Sometimes he used to wonder if he should try something else because no film of his was going blockbuster. There comes a time in everyone’s life when they feel ‘why is it not happening to me? Have I done something wrong?' 

On giving a nod to Jersey which is also a remake of a Telugu film, Shahid said that he wanted to do an original film so that people don’t think he is doing only remakes. But when he saw the film, it touched his heart. He cried four times while watching it. The character isn’t like Kabir Singh. He’s a quiet, introvert man but his intensity and journey was inspiring for him. He said, "I felt I should take this story to people because even I have been through weak moments when I used to feel ‘Should I try something else? It’s not happening here.’ But acting is the only thing I know and love."

Speaking about him being nervous, Shahid said, "After Kabir Singh, it feels like ‘What will be the right film? What will be the expectations of the audience? If I can match those expectations because people have loved it so much. I’ve never got so much love before so, I really don’t know.” 

Directed by Gowtam Tinnanauri, Jersey is about a talented but failed cricketer, who decides to return to the field in his late 30s driven by the desire to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfill his son’s wish for a jersey. The movie will release in August 2020.
