In the recent media interaction, the actor revealed how he is anxious about choosing the right film after the success of Kabir Singh.

It was rumoured that Ranveer and Shahid did not get along on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat, in which they played Alauddin Khilji and Maharawal Ratan Singh, respectively. I wanted to do an original film because people might think I am only doing remakes, but when I saw the film (Jersey), it touched my heart.

Directed by Gowtam Tinnanauri, Jersey is about a talented but failed cricketer, who decides to return to the field in his late 30s driven by the desire to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfill his son's wish for a jersey. He used to play cricket but he quit the game.

He added: "Personally, I will be capable to even expose with this chronicle because, too, am 38 years aged". He wondered if he should try something else other than acting when his films were not doing well and none of them was a blockbuster. Should I try something else? "Then you positively enact one thing else, or develop some roughly compromise". He said that he related a lot to the story.

Speaking about how he could relate to the original film, Shahid said: "Deep down, I feel you should do things you love or feel connected to, whether you get success or not". However, he eventually realized that one should always continue doing what is close to their heart, irrespective of the scale of success. That's the message of this movie. Of course, I cried four times after I observed the movie. This character is not like Kabir Singh at all. He's terribly composed and introverted in nature. "But his slither is engaging", the actor acknowledged.

Much has been written about the supposed cold war between Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The film, a remake of the Telugu blockbuster "Arjun Reddy", minted more than Rs 300 crore at the box office. In the video, he is seen hitting a clean six over mid-on.

A video of the 2 actors on the crimson carpet of the awards evening was shared on Instagram and goes viral on-line.

The Hindi model of "Jersey", scheduled to start to August 28 subsequent twelve months, moreover aspects Mrunal Thakur.
