Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor took to his Instagram to share that his upcoming film ‘Jersey’ has finally wrapped up. He made a heartfelt post on his social media about the wholesome experience he had while shooting for the film especially when half of it got shot in the middle of an unexpected pandemic. He also included a picture of himself in the post where he is standing with his back towards the camera, in front of a stadium.
His caption said, “It’s a film wrap on #jersey …. 47 days of shoot during covid. Just unbelievable. I am so proud of the entire team. It’s nothing short of a miracle. I want to thank each and every one from the unit for coming to set every day, putting themselves at risk and doing what we all love doing. ”
While talking about the film, he said, “Telling stories that touch hearts and make a difference. Jersey is a story that speaks of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The triumph of an indomitable spirit. If there was ever a time I could connect with the underlying spirit of a film this was it. As we all fight through this pandemic. Let’s always remember. This shall pass too. Here’s to my best filmmaking experience yet. Here’s to Jersey … we shall overcome !!!! ”
