Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri (who also helmed the original), the film was slated for an August 28 release. However, it was shifted due to the coronavirus pandemic. The film will be releasing on December 31 this year. The film will also feature Shahid Kapoor's father Pankaj Kapur as his mentor.
The original version of the film Jersey received two National Awards - for Best Telugu Film and Best Editor.
Shahid Kapoor was last seen in the 2019 hit Kabir Singh, co-starring Kiara Advani. The film was a remake of the Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role.
