Filmmaker Gowtam Tinnanuri says Shahid Kapoor will need at least two weeks of cricket practise before resuming shooting for Jersey

Many filmmakers have finally resumed work on their films and upcoming projects amid the Coronavirus pandemic. While some have decided to skip the shooting process until the pandemic is over Shahid Kapoor isn't one of them. The actor is soon going to resume work on his film Jersey where he plays a cricketer. The actor was shooting in Chandigarh before the production came to a sudden halt due to the lockdown.
 
Speaking about resuming shooting on his film, Gowtam Tinnanuri said that they will be taking new steps as they begin shooting again. He said, "Now, there is a cap on the number of crew members who can be present on a film set. Whenever the government allows us to increase the number, following the health situation in the country, we would need about four weeks to be on floors."
 
The filmmaker also said that Shahid Kapoor will need at least two weeks of cricket practise to get back into the groove. He said, "He would need at least two weeks of cricket practice before we begin the shoot to get back into the groove. He is a good cricketer, so we have less to worry on that front."
 
Shahid Kapoor's fitness coach Rajiv Mehra also said, "Both, Shahid and I, feel that we need at least 10 days of practise before the shoot starts again. We have to ensure that he doesn't sustain any injury while practicing or shooting...It's a very delicate situation to be in because now we will be working against a tight deadline."
