Directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri, who also helmed the original, Jersey chronicles the story of a talented but failed cricketer who decides to return to the field in his late 30s driven by the desire to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfil his son's wish for a jersey as a gift.

Also starring Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur, the movie is presented by Allu Aravind and produced by Gill, Dil Raju and S. Naga Vamsi.

The Hindi remake will hit theatres on 5 November.
