Has Shahid Kapoor taken a pay cut to stop ‘Jersey’ from releasing on OTT? Here’s the truth! – Exclusive | Hindi Movie News

Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Jersey’ was all set to hit the theatres on December 31, but it was postponed owing to the rise in Covid-19 cases. Soon, rumours were rife that the makers of ‘Jersey’ are planning an OTT release for the film, while a report also suggested that Shahid has taken a pay cut from his fee of Rs 31 crore, so that the film doesn’t release digitally.

However, a source close to the project informed ETimes, “There is no truth to this rumour about Shahid Kapoor taking a pay cut. Anyone can say anything, but the only fact is that the film has been postponed for now.” When asked about the OTT rumour, the source added, “Shahid is keen that this film releases in theatres, hence there is less chance of ‘Jersey’ skipping a theatrical release.”

Recently during an interview with ETimes, Shahid Kapoor was asked if he had taken inspiration from any specific cricketer for his role in ‘Jersey’ and he shared, “I have seen a lot of cricket as I am a huge cricket buff. You cannot be as good as a professional cricketer playing at international level, you can’t get there. The idea was just to get the personality of a cricketer in my character. The story of ‘Jersey’ is being told with a lot of emotion. That’s why the people would like to see this film, else they would like to see a match. The film is an in-depth drama which gives you an understanding of what can go on inside a sportsperson.”

Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, ‘Jersey’ is a remake of a Telugu sports drama.
