While people across northern India are braving the winter chill, Shahid Kapoor didn’t flinch when the temperature dropped to uncomfortable levels in Chandigarh, where he has been shooting for his much-awaited film, Jersey.
The cast and crew of Jersey shot non-stop in December till the New Year arrived, in what many called the coldest December ever in Chandigarh. Shahid completed his outdoor scenes in the biting cold without complaining.
Director Gowtham Tinnanuri, who also directed the original Telugu film starring Nani, is full of praise for the actor.
“Shahid is a thorough professional. Most the shoot during December till the end was in outdoor or live locations, where we all where in 3-4 layers of clothing. But Shahid gave his best and didn’t let the dropping temperature come in his way of giving his 100 per cent,” he says.
Producer Aman Gill adds, “Everyone could feel the winter getting severely cold, especially in the night, where temperatures dropped to two degrees. But Shahid was focused and didn’t let himself or anyone in the unit get affected by the coldest winter ever. As a thorough professional, he knew the importance of finishing the shoot within the allocated time and he did that.”
The Haider actor took a small break in between to bring in the New Year, during which he shot for brand endorsements and spent time with his family in Mumbai as well.
Jersey is presented by Allu Aravind and produced by Aman Gill and Dil Raju. The film releases on August 28 this year....
