Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is all set for his upcoming film Jersey which is scheduled to have a theatrical release on December 31. The movie stars him along with Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur. Shahid shared that he looked up to MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli before playing his character in Jersey.EXCLUSIVE: “MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have a certain aura when they walk onto the pitch” – says Jersey actor Shahid Kapoor on getting inspiration for his character
In a recent exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, when asked about which batsman Shahid took inspiration from while preparing for Jersey, the actor replied, “As a batsman, there’s no point in taking inspiration because you will never be able to play as well as a professional cricketer.”
“But there’s something about the presence and personality of certain people which appeal to me and I think Mahender Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli are two batsmen that I’ve felt have a certain aura when they walk onto the pitch. They are very passionate and you can feel it in Dhoni’s eyes and with Virat it’s very pronounced how he feels. So these were two people that I saw a little bit before playing the character because I felt I connected with them,” he added.
Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur talked about their film Jersey and shared the experience of working on the film. They also talked about how learning cricket at 39 was the biggest challenge for Shahid.
Jersey is a sports drama film written and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, a remake of his 2019 Telugu film of the same title. The story is about a 36-year-old cricketer named Arjun who stopped his cricketing career ten years ago, now aiming to play for Indian team. The film is produced by Allu Entertainment, Dil Raju Production, Sithara Entertainments and Brat Films.
