Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, Jersey is the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit of the same name. The story is based on a cricketer named Arjun who is a real talent but somehow couldn't make it big and fails at his own game.
In a sudden turn of events, he decides to make a comeback in his late thirties and play for the Indian cricket team to live upto the expectations set by his son. Jersey also features Pankaj Kapur and Mrunal Thakur.
The coronavirus outbreak has lead various Bollywood stars to take precautions. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan recently tweeted that he won't be visiting his fans on Sunday, who gather outside his residence in Mumbai every week, to get a glimpse of him.
