The much awaited Jersey finally made it to the theaters after months of postponement.
This Year That Day Box Office Report- When Anjaam, Waqt, Dum Maaro Dum And Nil Battey Sannatta Were Released
Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey, a remake of Telugu film was officially announced to be released on 31st December to end 2021 on a good note. However, with sudden rise of COVID-19 cases due to 3rd wave, the cricket drama got postponed to 14th April which was another set back since the advance collection of KGF Chapter 2 was humongous which led the makers of Jersey decide to postpone the film by another week.
However, the good news is that Jersey, also starring Mrunal Thakur in key role, got favorable reviews from the critics. The bad news is that cricket drama has opened on a low note in the morning shows in the range of 10-12% across India which is a troubling sign as the film carries big budget. Another issue is the release date since Yash starrer KGF Chapter 2 refuses to slow down at the box office and will continue to dominate the box office this week as well.
Jersey has been released in 2200+ screens in the northern belt and is the first film of Shahid Kapoor after he gave the blockbuster, Kabir Singh. The film is directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri and produced by Aman Gill, Dil Raju, Suryadevara Naga Vamsi, and Allu Aravind. Jersey stars Shahid Kapoor, Mrunal Thakur, and Pankaj Kapoor in key roles.
