Jersey is the Hindi remake of Nani’s Telugu film of the same title. In an interview with, Shahid talked about his approach to the film and character, Arjun Talwar. He said, “We all felt inspired from the film that we saw. We wanted to take it to a different audience. We rediscovered it. And I have made that character mine in every way that I can and I have complete ownership and I am very possessive of him. But the character that was played by Nani was their first one. So, that respect will always be with him.” Jersey is backed by Allu Entertainment, Dil Raju Production, Sithara Entertainments and Brat Films.
