Mumbai, October 14

Shahid Kapoor is set to play the lead role in the Hindi remake of the Telugu sports drama "Jersey", which will hit the theatres on August 28, 2020. 

The Hindi version will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanauri, who also helmed the original 2019 Telugu film, starring Nani in lead role.

"I'm really looking forward to remaking my film 'Jersey' in Hindi and taking it to national audiences and there is no one better then Shahid Kapoor to recreate the magic of the original for Hindi audiences," Tinnanauri said in a statement. 

The film is being produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill and Dil Raju.

After the massive box office success of "Kabir Singh", an adaptation of "Arjun Reddy", "Jersey" marks Shahid's second Hindi remake of a Telugu hit. - PTI
