Shahid Kapoor will be returning on screens shortly with Jersey, following the much-anticipated Kabir Singh in 2019. Shahid will portray Arjun, a failing cricketer who decides to realize his ambition of representing Team India for his son in this remake of the National Award-winning Telugu film of the same name.

He then steals from her pocketbook when she refuses. His sole purpose in life is to make his child proud of him. We're also shown flashbacks of him going on a rampage on the cricket field. His first love was ripped from him as a star cricketer, and when he decides to return to it, his family threatens to abandon him. for money in order to buy a birthday present for his son.

As a star cricketer, his first love was stolen from him, and when he wishes to return to it, his family threatens to desert him.
Jersey appears to be the ideal Bollywood picture, with family drama, romance, sports, and a dash of action thrown in for good measure.

Shahid Kapoor had stated during an Instagram live that he was "unhappy" with the way his career was shaping out before his triumph with Kabir Singh in 2019. "Before Kabir Singh, I watched Jersey. I was unhappy at the time I saw it. I used to be concerned about where my career would take me and what I would do next. As a result, the story of Jersey, which is about late achievement, resonated with me. It's about a man who achieves greatness when everyone else is retiring," the actor explained.
"Four-five times cry," he says. Shahid also claimed that several people discouraged him from shooting the Jersey remake, advising him to avoid playing his age after his role in Kabir Singh as a college student.
Jersey, starring Shahid Kapoor, will be released on December 31.
