As per a report in Pinkvilla, Shahid has given a nod for the Hindi remake of Telugu movie Jersey. Also, Shahid’s brother Ishaan Khatter has also been offered the movie.
Pinkvilla quoted a source saying, “It’s an adventure based action drama. He plays a biker in the film. The movie is expected to roll sometime around January next year. Shahid is definitely doing the film.”
As Jersey also tells the story of two brothers, Ishaan will play Shahid’s brother. The source said, “Ishaan Khatter has been offered the other part. When Shahid was told about this, he was extremely happy about the development. Ishaan too has liked the script and okayed it. The story is extremely hard-hitting and emotional at the same time, and perfectly suits the two bhais.”
Also, reports suggest that filmmaker Karan Johar has bought the Hindi remake rights of Jersey and will be directed by Ram Madhvani.
Directed by Gautam Tinnanuri, Jersey’s story revolves around the life of a 36-year-old cricketer Arjun (Nani), who gets success at the end of his cricketing career. It is not a normal sports drama but a very strong and emotional family drama that will bring tears for sure.
