 After hearing the news, Mira Rajput headed to Chandigarh.

Confirming the same, Shahid took to Twitter and wrote, "Thank you for all the concern. Yes, I have got a few stitches but am recovering fast. #jersey has taken a little bit of my blood but a script this good deserves that in the least. Have a good one you all. Keep it real. Make it count. Spread the love. Humanity above all."

This isn't the first time he has been injured and unwell, on December 12 before kickstarting the shoot of the film Jersey too he was unwell, and took to twitter and shared the news that he is fine and will now start shooting for the film.

His tweet read, "Thank you all for all the concern and wishes. Last 2 weeks I was out of action but am well and raring to go now. #Jersey shoot starts tomorrow.  As usual pre-shoot nervousness. Sleepless and anxious. Every character is a new challenge. And the responsibility of finding the truth."

Jersey throws light on a talented but failed cricketer, who decides to return to the field in his late thirties driven by the desire to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfill his son's wish for a jersey as a gift.

The Hindi version of the sports-drama is being directed by Gowtam Tinnanauri, who also helmed the original 2019 Telugu film, starring Nani in the lead. Jersey, which also features Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapoor, the film is set to hit the theaters in August 2020.

Here's wishing Shahid Kapoor a very speedy recovery!
