A source close to the development reveals to an entertainment portal that the team at Dharma Productions feels that Shahid fits the bill perfectly for the role of a cricketer in the remake. “After his intense performance in Kabir Singh, it would be really interesting to see him in another role, obviously in a completely different avatar and role. Dharma Productions will be making this remake of Jersey, which is a unique cricket film that wooed the Telugu masses, and they felt that Shahid fit the role quite well.”

Besides the Jersey remake, we also hear that Shahid Kapoor has been offered director Ram Madhvani’s next directorial venture. “Yes, Ram sir has an interesting script in hand and he is keen on Shahid doing the role. The actor has been approached but he is yet to respond,” reveals another source.
