Nani is upbeat about his forthcoming film, Jersey, which is slated to hit the theatres sometime in April. In the film directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri, Nani plays the role of a 36-year-old cricketer who tastes victory much later in life.
Now, according to latest reports, Jersey is said to loosely based on the life of cricketer Raman Lamba. It says that Raman was injured when the ball hit his temporal bone. He slipped into a coma and eventually passed away due to the severe extent of his injuries.
Sources close to the team have revealed that Nani's Jersey will have a similar ending and it will be a tragic end to the story. It says that Nani will be seen in three different characters, as that of father and the son.
The shooting of Jersey was wrapped up very recently and is currently in the post-production phase. Actress Shraddha Srinath, who is famous in Kannada and Tamil cinema, will make her Telugu debut with this flick.
