The makers of ‘Jersey‘ pushed back the release of Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur‘s film indefinitely amid the rising COVID cases and cinemas being asked to shut in the capital. Post their announcement, there were rumours doing the rounds on the film releasing on an online platform.

But the makers dismissed the reports of OTT release. A trade anaylst tweeted, “#Xclusiv… #BreakingNews… #Jersey POSTPONED… WON’T RELEASE ON 31 DEC… New date will be announced shortly… Industry talk that #Jersey will be Direct-to-OTT release is FALSE.”

In an official statement, the makers shared, “In view of the current circumstances and new covid guidelines we have decided to postpone the theatrical release of our film Jersey. We have received immense love from you all so far and want to thank you all for everything. Until then everyone please stay safe and healthy, and wishing you all the best for the new year ahead!! Team Jersey!!”

Speaking about the movie, Shahid had told ETimes in an interview, “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 the 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 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.”
