Shahid Kapoor will next be seen in Hindi remake of hit Telugu film ‘Jersey’. ‘Jersey’ is directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri, who also helmed the Telugu version of the film. The sports drama is scheduled to hit screens in August.
Shahid Kapoor has been training hard to essay the role of a cricketer on the silver screen for the Hindi remake of hit Telugu film ‘Jersey’.
According to a report on a news portal the film’s theatrical rights have already been sold to a Mumbai based distributor for a good price. Last month, Shahid Kapoor was shooting a scene at the Mohali Stadium when he was injured after a ball hit him on his mouth. “Shahid was playing perfectly fine and rehearsing before the shot, when the ball unexpectedly came and hit him on the lower lip and cut open a wide gash where blood started gushing out. He was immediately taken for treatment and a doctor was rushed to see him. To close the wound, stitches were sutured by the doctor,” a source close to the makers had told PTI.
The actor had soon returned to Mumbai to recover.
“Thank you for all the concern. Yes I have got a few stitches but am recovering fast. #jersey has taken a little bit of my blood but a script this good deserves that in the least. Have a good one you all. Keep it real. Make it count. Spread the love. Humanity above all,” Shahid had shared.
