Shahid Kapoor bagged a super hit film in 2019 with Kabeer Singh which was directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Though the film has made headlines for many reasons, it still left no chance to hit the box office with good numbers. It was a Telugu remake of Arjun Reddy, a blockbuster film in Tollywood too.
Now the actor will be seen in another remake, Telugu film Jersey, that is being directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who had also directed the original. The film is based on the life of a cricketer, who returns to playing after several years. The Telugu film starred Nani and Shraddha Srinath which was a huge hit in Tollywood.
Recently, Shahid hosted a Q&A session on Instagram and asked his fans to ask him anything they want. Among the several questions, a fan asked Shahid on Instagram to describe Nani in one word. Shahid called him ‘fantastic’.
To that question, Shahid replied, “He was fantastic. Made me cry so many times in the movie.” Nani’s performance in Jersey was highly appreciated as the actor is known for his power-packed presence on the big screen. The Hindi remake of Jersey film also stars Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur in key roles. In November last year, Shahid took to his Instagram and had shared a video of his practice session and wrote, “#jersey #prep”. The actor could be seen in his cricket gear playing the sport. It is slated to hit the screens in August this year.
