Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey to release on December 31, 2021

Shifting from the earlier announced Diwali date, Jersey will hit screens on New Year’s Eve especially since the release of the Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha was pushed to Valentine’s Day 2022. Says an industry trade source, “With Laal Singh Chaddha being pushed to 2022 it gives the Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey ample room at the box office to maximise business.”

As for the film itself, Jersey stars Shahid Kapoor, Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapoor. Directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri the film features music by Sachet and Parmpara, and is a remake of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Telugu film Jersey.
