Popular actress Mrunal Thakur has made an impression with her roles both on television and films. The gorgeous and talented lady who has wooed the audience with her performances in movies like Super 30, Love Sonia and Batla House, will soon be seen as female lead in Shahid Kapoor's 'Jersey.'

Her character will be closely related to that of Shahid's role, who will play the role of a man in his mid 30s, who deals with emotional journey of playing cricket for the country, when it's time for most people to retire from competitive sports.

Talking about the same, Mrunal said: "I'm super excited to play the lead opposite Shahid in 'Jersey'. When I saw the original film I was bowled over by its passionate emotional journey. It felt like I had lived a full lifetime of experiences in those two plus hours. So deep was the affect of the film on me that I couldn't get it out of my heart the whole night so I immediately watched it again the next day, I can't wait for Hindi audiences to experience a similar impact!"

Adding more about the casting, she said: "After Shahid came on board, I only had Mrunal on my mind for the lead opposite him, I loved her performance and confidence in 'Super 30' opposite Hrithik Roshan and felt she's perfectly fit for the part in Jersey and will do full justice to the role."

The film is produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill, Dil Raju, and is expected to release on August 28, 2020. The film is a Hindi remake of the Telugu hit of the same name and will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who also helmed the original movie.
