Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor has wrapped up his film Jersey after the shooting amid coronavirus pandemic. The actor has been extensively shooting for the movie from the past 47 days. As he wrapped it, Shahid posted a heartfelt note on his Instagram page. The actor posted a photo facing his back to the camera and looking at the dark and open stadium. He is seen wearing a camouflage jacket and faded jeans while holding a cap in his hand.
Shahid captioned his post stating, “It’s a film wrap on #Jersey… 47 days of the shoot during COVID. Just unbelievable! I am so proud of the entire team. It’s nothing short of a miracle. I want to thank each and everyone from the unit for coming to set every day, putting themselves at risk and doing what we all love doing. Telling stories that touch hearts and make a difference.”
He further wrote, “Jersey is a story that speaks of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The triumph of an indomitable spirit. If there was ever a time I could connect with the underlying spirit of a film this was it. As we all fight through this pandemic. Let’s always remember. This shall pass too. Here’s to my best filmmaking experience yet. Here’s to Jersey… we shall overcome!!! @gowtamnaidu @mrunalofficial2016 @geethaarts @amanthegill @srivenkateshwaracreations.”
Jersey is the Hindi remake of Telugu film of the same name directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri. The film stars Mrunal Thakur as the female lead and Pankaj Kapur as Shahid’s coach.
