However, Shahid picking up Kabir Singh over Jab We Met had the internet divided as many said that this is what is wrong with society as he chose a ‘toxic character’ over a much sorted and sweet character. However, many reasoned that Jab We Met was more of a Kareena Kapoor Khan’s film whereas Shahid led from the front in Kabir Singh, also it was his highest grossing film.

Talking about the importance of Jersey, he replied to another fan, “It’s my best filmmaking experience yet. Can't wait to share it with you all.”

When asked about his ‘favourite cricketer?’ the actor revealed it’s Sachin Tendulkar who has his heart all time.

Further, a user tweeted to him, “did you enjoy working with mrunal in jersey??” “Yes she is lovely. We had a great time. She is extremely talented. And loads of fun” he revealed.

One fan cheekily asked Shahid, “Baccho ko sambhalna jyada mushkil hai ya biwi ko (What is tougher - handling the kids or the wife)?” To this, Shahid said, “Lagta hai apki shaadi nahi hui ab tak (It looks like you haven't been married yet).”

Another wanted Shahid to describe actor Nani in one word. Nani played the lead role in the Telugu film Jersey, which Shahid is essaying in the Hindi version. He said, “I think Nani did an amazing job in Jersey. He made me cry. So I would say he inspired me to do this film.”

Shahid lavished praise on Hrithik Roshan and Samantha Akkineni when asked to respond about them.

Shahid’s Jersey has been directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, on whom Shahid heaped praise and called him his ‘favourite so far’

Jersey revolves around a talented but failed cricketer who decides to return to cricket in his mid-30s, with the hope of representing the Indian cricket team so that he could fulfill his son’s wish for a jersey as a gift.
