‘Jersey’ directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri was one of the biggest hits in Telugu cinema last year. The film tells an inspiring story of a middle-aged family man making his return to cricket. Nani’s performance in it was unanimously appreciated. It will be interesting to see how well Shahid reprises the character. The fact that the film has a widely appealing storyline should help the Hindi audience to connect to it.
The Hindi remake version is also helmed by Gowtam Tinnanuri. Allu Aravind, Aman Gill and Dil Raju are producing the film. The film’s Tamil rights is with actor Rana Dagguabati and he is planning to remake it Vishnu Vishal in the lead.
