The release of Shahid Kapoor's Jersey has been postponed because to an increase in Covid-19 instances.
Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey, which was set for a theatrical release on December 31, has been postponed amid the mounting Covid-19 instances and fears about the omicron variation. A statement made by the producers indicated that the release has been postponed due to the “new Covid guidelines.”
"In light of the current circumstances and new Covid restrictions, we have decided to postpone the cinema distribution of our picture Jersey," the statement said. We have received enormous affection from you all thus far and want to thank you all for everything. Until then, everyone, please keep safe and healthy, and best wishes for the next year!! 'Team Jersey!' On Monday, Delhi issued a yellow warning and closed theatres, among other steps.
Jersey, which also stars Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapoor, was supposed to be released in 2020 but was delayed due to the first lockdown. Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, the film is the Hindi version of the Telugu original which starred Nani in the lead role.
Shahid had previously commented to indianexpress.com on the audience returning to the theatres. "I think if the picture is good, it will find its place," he remarked. Because of the epidemic, theatres have been closed for so long in the last two years, and there are numerous films that have yet to be released. Many people did not release their films because they were afraid that too many films would be released at the same time. But I believe that if you believe in your product, are enthusiastic about it, and have belief in yourself, you will understand that the audience has one week to decide how they feel about my film. It makes no difference what film comes before or after us; each film has its own destiny."
Jersey's new release date has yet to be revealed.
