Virat Kohli finds a good cover drive ‘therapeutic’, Shahid Kapoor agrees

We earlier told you that Shahid Kapoor has dived deep into the preparations of his fresh project, a Hindi remake of the Telugu flick Jersey. Months after Ranveer Singh extensively trained in cricket for ’83, Shahid steps into similar shoes, and has begun learning the nitty-gritty of the game. A photo of him net-practicing surfaced on the internet, a couple of days back.

Virat Kohli finds a good cover drive 'therapeutic', Shahid Kapoor agrees

The actor recently left a remark on cricketer Virat Kohli’s tweet, and it makes us believe that he is enjoying his preps already! Virat, sharing a photo of himself striking a swift cover drive, wrote, ‘A good cover drive is therapeutic’. Shahid was quick to retweet it, and wrote, ‘Am Feeling it’…!

The original film, starring south actor Nani in the lead role, revolved around a failed cricketer who makes a stunning comeback at the age of 36. “Shahid plays a cricketer in Jersey and the perfectionist that he is, he has already started learning the ropes of playing a cricketer on-screen by regularly going for the cricketing lessons. The film’s shoot starts in Chandigarh by November end,” a source earlier told Bollywood Hungama.

Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who also helmed the Telugu version, the film is scheduled to release on August 28, 2020.
