The makers of Shahid Kapoor, Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur-starrer 'Jersey' on Tuesday shared an intriguing trailer of the film.
Set against the backdrop of India’s favourite sport, cricket, 'Jersey' highlights the story of an underdog and celebrates the human spirit.
The almost three-minute-long trailer gives a glimpse of Shahid's character's life. In the film, the actor plays the role of a former cricket player and Mrunal plays the role of his wife.
The intriguing trailer opens with a jobless, former cricketer trying to fulfil his son's dream to buy a jersey and when he fails to arrange money for the same, he ends up trying to steal money from his wife's wallet.
The trailer also shows how he tries to earn his child’s respect and not be considered a failure by him as everyone else.
In between all this, he is offered the job of an assistant coach of a cricket team but he seems hesitant.
