With a major spike in Covid cases, the movie business is again facing a major crisis. After two major successes at the boxoffice Spiderman No Way Home and Pushpa The Rise, theatres are again threatened with closure.

With the Delhi administration already announcing the closure of cinema halls, the producers of the Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey, which was supposed to release this coming Friday, have decided to postpone their release indefinitely.

A source close to the development revealed, “They were willing to go ahead with the release even after night curfew was declared in Maharashtra and Delhi although it meant a substantial drop in the number of shows per day. But now with the Delhi administration declaring closure of movie theatres, it’s best to put the release off indefinitely.”


Jersey, the remake of a Tamil hit of the same title, is the story of a down-in-the-dumps cricketer trying to win his son’s respect. It is a crucial project for Shahid who has not had a release in two years.
