Shahid Kapoor, who will soon be seen in the Hindi remake of Telugu success, Jersey, shared how he got excited after watching the original movie. He said he cried four times after watching the movie, as he could relate completely to the main character, who is close to the actor's age. He says: "Actually, I cried four times when I saw the movie. This character is nothing like Kabir Singh. He is very calm and introverted by nature. But his journey is inspiring."
He also explained: "I never wanted to be part of a remake again (after Kabir Singh). I wanted to make an original movie because people might think I'm just doing remakes, but when I saw the movie (Jersey), it touched my heart. Although it is based on cricket, it tells the story of a 36-year-old boy who has a six-year-old son, he used to play cricket but left the game.For certain reasons, at the age of 36, he decides to play again to cricket because that's all he knows. "
Shahid, who has been busy working on this new version for a while, added: "Personally, I could relate to this story because I am also 38 years old. Sometimes, I also used to feel that I was not delivering a blockbuster. Movie, then "What should I do? Should I try something else? There's a moment in everyone's life when we wonder why we're not doing well. Then you do something else or make some kind of commitment. Deep down, I feel you he must do things he loves or with which he feels connected, whether he succeeds or not. He should feel satisfaction in his heart while doing what he does. That is the message of this film. "
