The "Kabir Singh" star had started filming the movie earlier last year but the shoot was put on hold in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic

The team resumed the production in October and shot in various location in and around Dehradun and Chandigarh with safety protocols in place.

Producer Aman Gill said Diwali is the perfect time to release a family sports drama like "Jersey".

“Diwali is the biggest family festival of the year, and is the perfect time to bring ‘Jersey,’ a family sports drama to audiences, a time when all families can come together to celebrate this journey," Gill said.

Also starring Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur, the movie is directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri, who helmed the original as well.

"Jersey" is presented by Allu Aravind and produced by Gill, Dil Raju and S Naga Vamsi.
