Now another addition to the Jersey cast is Pankaj Kapur. He will play a pivotal role in Allu Aravind, Aman Gill and Dil Raju’s production.

According to a source close to the development, the veteran actor-filmmaker will play a mentor to Shahid’s character and will be a strong pillar of support to him.

During a media interview, Pankaj Kapur admitted that he is excited to be a part of the film. He said,

“Jersey is a strong story-driven by emotions. Working with Shahid has always been interesting. I admire his ability to portray emotions beautifully.”

In an interview with a leading daily the director added,

“Pankaj sir is such a great actor. We have all grown up watching his work. To be able to direct him is a great honor and I know that he fits the role of a mentor perfectly.”

The film is set in and around the Union Territory during the mid-’90s and will kick off in one of the cricket stadiums there. The team will be shooting at real locations, including a row house in the heart of the city, which will be Shahid’s home in the film.
