Earlier in December 2019, Shahid Kapoor began shooting for Jersey. The actor, after the stupendous success of Kabir Singh, is starring in yet another remake taking over Nani’s role as an aspiring cricketer. This morning, Shahid began prep in Mohali. But, unfortunately, he suffered an injury.
A source says, “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. All this has left the actor with a heavily bruised lower lip, and hence he will not be able to shoot for the film till the swelling subsides and the wound is healed to enable him to emote freely.
As a thorough professional Shahid is doing everything in his power to speed up recovery so he can resume the shoot in 4 – 5 days.
Jersey remake will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanauri who helmed the critically acclaimed and commercially successful original as well. Produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill, Dil Raju, the film is releasing on August 28, 2020.
