Here’s to my best filmmaking experience yet: Shahid Kapoor pens a heartfelt note as he wraps 'Jersey' amid COVID-19 pandemic


The pandemic is in full force but the unlocking phase has allowed the film industry to put itself back on track. Several filmmakers have commenced shooting already. Shahid Kapoor who was shooting for the Hindi remake of Telugu film Jersey before the pandemic has now wrapped the film. The actor shared the news on Insatgram. 

He wrote: “It’s a film wrap on #jersey .... 47 days of shoot during covid. Just unbelievable. I am so proud of the entire team. It’s nothing short of a miracle. I want to thank each and every one from the unit for coming to set every day, putting themselves at risk and doing what we all love doing. Telling stories that touch hearts and make a difference. Jersey is a story that speaks of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The triumph of an indomitable spirit. If there was ever a time I could connect with the underlying spirit of a film this was it. As we all fight through this pandemic. Let’s always remember. This shall pass too. Here’s to my best filmmaking experience yet. Here’s to Jersey ... we shall overcome !!!! @gowtamnaidu @mrunalofficial2016 @geethaarts @amanthegill @srivenkateshwaracreations” The picture showed Shahid, standing with his back to the camera, inside a flood-lit stadium.
