In shocking news, the makers of Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur starrer Jersey have decided to postpone the release of the film. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter page and announced the news that Jersey, which was set to be released on December 31, 2021, has been postponed indefinitely. He also confirmed that the film would have a theatrical release in the future too. 

Adarsh's tweet read as "#Xclusiv... #BreakingNews... #Jersey POSTPONED... It won't be released on December 31st, 2011. A new date will be announced shortly. Industry talk that #Jersey will be a direct-to-OTT release is false."

The makers also released a statement regarding the postponement of the Jersey release, which read, "In view of the current circumstances and the new COVID-19 guidelines, we have decided to postpone the theatrical release of our film Jersey. We have received immense love from you all so far and want to thank you all for everything. Until then, everyone, please stay safe and healthy, and I wish you all the best for the new year ahead!! Team Jersey!!"

Jersey is a sports drama film written and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri and is a remake of his 2019 Telugu film of the same name. It stars Kapoor as a former cricketer who returns to the game for the sake of his son. The film also has Pankaj Kapur in a supporting role. 

Allu Entertainment, Dil Raju Production, Sithara Entertainment, and Brat Films are producing the film.

Earlier, Jersey was supposed to be released in theatres on August 28, 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic pushed that date back. The film will be completed on December 14, 2020.

Earlier this year, the makers had announced that the film would hit the big screen during the Diwali weekend. However, it was postponed again due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Meanwhile, the film has been passed with a clean U/A certificate, a source told Bollywood Hungama. The portal reported that the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) had not requested any cuts to the film. It further stated that the violence and intimacy in the film are kept to a minimum, and everything is within the bounds of what is acceptable. Moreover, the film is marketed as a family film.
