The 2019 National Awards ceremony was announced Monday evening, and “Jersey” won Best Telugu Film in the Regional Category. Jersey undoubtedly deserves this award for its pioneering narration of a sports drama full of strong emotions complemented by the incredible performances of Natural Nani and Shraddha Srinath.
Now “Jersey” is renewed in Hindi and after a while the photo shoot is over. Shahid Kapoor gives an essay on the lead role and on the National Award, he congratulated the Telugu “Jersey” team.
But Shahid feels it is too much of a burden to meet the standards set by the Telugu version. “Congratulations to the entire team. Thanks for the extra pressure,” Shahid tweeted. This “extra pressure” in his comments says it all.
Hindi “Jersey” is also directed by the original filmmaker and is due to be released on Diwali.
