The “Padmaavat” lead actor Shahid Kapoor will be finally seen on the big silver screens after almost two years.

Shahid Kapoor was last starred in the film ‘Kabir Singh’ that was released in 2019 and earned wide success. ‘Kabir Singh’ was a remake of the popular Telugu film, ‘Arjun Reddy’ and was helmed by Sandeep Reddy.

The actor is set to star in yet another remake after Kabir Singh.

The  actor will next be seen in the film ‘Jersey’, which is a remake of a Telugu film of the same title starring Nani. The film also stars Shahid’s father, Pankaj Kapur, thereby reuniting Shahid and his father Pankaj Kapur onscreen.

The trailer of the film was released on Tuesday. The whole cast of  “Jersey” was present at the trailer launch of the film. At the recent trailer launch event, Shahid shared his experience of working with his father Pankaj Kapur in Jersey. The actor told that something nerve-wracking occurred on the sets on first day of shooting with his father. Ever since was scared to work with his father.

Shahid said, “It’s very scary to work with your dad, especially if he is an actor. I had shot about 15 days with the director and I felt that he was happy with my work and all”.

He then revealed what happened on the first day of shooting with his dad, Pankaj. The actor stated, “Although, we started the scene and Gautam took his shot first, my dad did the take and suddenly I saw Gowtam’s expression. So, I asked him, ‘What happened man’. Very seriously, he went up to my dad and said, ‘outstanding sir, we are moving on’. He then walked to a corner and I followed, as I was nervous, but asked, ‘kya hua Gowtam sir’. And he said, I am very concerned and asked, ‘will you be able to match his calibre in the shot because he is outstanding, no one will look at you’. So, that’s my dad. And, yes it’s nerve-wracking to work with him because of how great actor he is.”
