He has trained with a season ball, has never played with one before, and anyone playing against a season ball for the first time as an adult will attest to how difficult the exercise is. He has gone through the grind, training for a role as a professional cricketer. And he’s also shed his blood for the character, got 25 stitches on his lips, and we all know how important an actor’s face is to his livelihood, especially for a mainstream, commercial leading star. We are talking about Shahid Kapoor who has done all this and more in preparation for his role in his upcoming film Jersey.
Besides, you don’t have to listen to us for this. Shahid Kapoor uploaded a video of himself demonstrating his training routine to play the role of a professional cricketer in jersey, and it clearly shows all that we have mentioned above. Shahid uploaded the video on his official Instagram handle and captioned it, “This one has my blood. #JerseyOfDreams.” Watch it below:
Earlier, at the Jersey trailer launch, Shahid Kapoor opened up about how he had to go around seeking work even after delivering a monstrous blockbuster. Kabir Singh, “After Kabir Singh was released, I went to everyone like a beggar. I went to all the people who made these 200-250 crore films. I’ve never been a part of this club, so it was completely new to me. After spending 15-16 years in the industry, I have never had such a huge grosser. So, when it finally happened, I didn’t know where to go, it was completely new to me. You might say, I tried my best not to do that (the jersey that was offered to her before doing Kabir Singh). So, credit goes to Gautham (Gautam Tinnanuri, director) for waiting for me, working with me, and I am very happy that I did. I can safely say that this is my best film till date,” Shahid said.
