With a major spike in Covid cases, the movie business is again facing a major crisis. After two major successes at the boxoffice Spiderman No Way Home and Pushpa The Rise,theatres are again threatened with a closure.
With the Delhi administration already announcing a closure of cinema halls, the producers of the Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey, which was supposed to release this coming Friday, have decided to postpone their release indefinitely.
A source close to the development revealed, “They were willing to go ahead with the release even after night curfew was declared in Maharashtra and Delhi although it meant a substantial drop in the number of shows per day. But now with the Delhi administration declaring a closure of movie theatres, it’s best to put the release off indefinitely.”
Jersey, the remake of a Tamil hit of the same title, is the story of a down-in-the-dumps cricketer trying to win his son’s respect. It is a crucial project for Shahid who has not had a release in two years.
