The coming days Friday and Saturday are expected to be important days for the movie. ‘Jersey’ has actors like Shahid Kapoor, Mrunal Thakur, Ronit Kamra, Pankaj Kapur, Geetika Mahendru, Shishir Sharma, Rituraj Singh and Rudrashish Majumdar have already suffered a lot. The reason for the loss is expected to be the wrong marketing. The makers conducted a social media campaign for the movie which was very weak. During the promotional time of the film, no particular or clear message was circulated amongst the audience. Even the subject matter of the film was not made clear to the audience. The posters were made in such a way that the audience could depict it as a sports-based film that is cricket centric. But actually, the film revolves around a man who is facing a mid-age life crisis. 

In the upcoming time, we can see Shahid Kapoor with the debutant director Aditya Nimbalkar in his movie ‘Bull’. Then with Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bloody Daddy’. Apart from this, the actor is also working on a series for Prime Video with Raj and DK. His debut movie was in the year 2003 ‘Ishq Vishq’ and he has been the dancing star of Indian cinema.
