Jersey, starring Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur, will be released in less than a week. The film was originally set to be released on December 31, 2022, but had to be postponed at the last minute due to the outbreak of the third wave of pandemics. The film will now be released in theatres on April 14, 2022. The CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) has given it a U/A certificate ahead of its distribution.
The film received a U/A certificate from the CBFC on January 7. The movie has a total running time of 170 minutes and 43 seconds (2 hours, 50 minutes, 43 seconds). The film’s advance booking will begin on Sunday or Monday (April 10 or April 11).
People across the country will be celebrating Mahavir Jayanti, Ambedkar Jayanti, Vaishaki, Vishu, and Easter during the weekend, hence Jersey will be releasing on a holiday weekend. The picture, however, will compete with Yash’s KGF-Chapter 2, which will be released on April 14. Vijay’s Beast, however, will be released in theatres on April 13. Film buffs are in for a treat this holiday season, with three films of varying genres on the big screen.
Jersey is a remake of the same-named Nani starring. The story follows an ex-cricketer who is struggling to make ends meet and wants to fulfil his child’s wish of getting a Jersey, but in the process, he is forced to confront his heroic past and must decide whether to rise to the occasion and become a symbol of hope or continue to live a life as a loser.
Gowtam Tinnanuri directed the film, which was produced by Dil Raju, S.Naga Vamsi, and Aman Gill. Sachet & Parmpara composed the music.
