Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Jersey’ will stream on Netflix on May 20

Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur’s ‘Jersey’ which released in theatres on April 22, 2022 will be arriving on streaming platform within a month of its release on May 20, 2022. The announcement about the digital release was made on May 17, 2022.

‘Jersey’ was a popular Telugu movie, directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri, starring Telugu actor Nani. The movie was critically acclaimed and even went on to win a National Award. Shahid Kapoor whose last big hit was ‘Kabir Singh’, which was also a remake of Telugu’s super successful ‘Arjun Reddy’ was roped in for the Hindi remake of the movie, which was also titled ‘Jersey’.

The movie saw numerous delays on its way to the silver screen. Originally it was supposed to release in December 2021, but the rising Covid cases prompted the makers to delay the release to February, which was further postponed to April 14. However, a spot of legal trouble and the idea of clashing with the much-awaited mass entertainer, ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ once again delayed ‘Jersey’s’ release by a week and the movie eventually released in theatres on April 22, 2022.

Despite being critically acclaimed and all reviewers unanimously hailing the movie and Shahid Kapoor’s performance in it, the movie did not make the expected numbers at the box office. Purely going by box office revenues, the movie would be termed a flop because it did not bring in full house of audiences at the theatre.

But ‘Jersey’ should not be judged purely on numbers. Anyone who did watch the movie had nothing but praises for the movie and the performances of the main actors in it. This digital streaming of the movie, which will happen on Netflix, provides a larger global audience the chance to watch the critically acclaimed performance of Shahid Kapoor in this slice-of-life sports drama that is both heart-warming and inspiring at the same time.

‘Jersey’ will release for digital streaming on Netflix on May 20, 2022.
