As the team looks forward to resume shooting soon, Gowtam, in an interview, has shed light on how the filming on the sports-drama will be scheduled once its safe to be on the sets with Shahid, Mrunal Thakur and other actors.
Talking about shooting Jersey amid coronavirus scare, Gowtam said, “Now, there is a cap on the number of crew members who can be present on a film set. Whenever the government allows us to increase the number, following the health situation in the country, we would need about four weeks to be on floors.”
Adding to it, Gowtam also praised Shahid’s cricketing skills as he said, “He would need at least two weeks of cricket practice before we begin the shoot to get back into the groove. He is a good cricketer, so we have less to worry on that front.”
