Shahid Kapoor Stars In The Longest Film Of His Career, The Longest Film Ever To Pass With Zero Cuts
Following the success of Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor has been contacted for other high-profile projects, including the forthcoming sports drama Jersey, which stars Mrunal Thakur. Jersey is already on its way to becoming a massive blockbuster in the United States. Despite the picture being slated to be released this Friday, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has officially certified it as having received no edits and a U/A certificate.
The sports drama is an authentic replica of a Telugu film of the same name, which starred Nani and was directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who also directed the original film in English.
A source told Bollywood Hungama that the film Jersey, starring Shahid Kapoor, was certified by the CBFC yesterday with no edits, just in time for its release this week. “The film has been passed with a clean U/A certificate,” the source said. In other words, the CBFC (Central Board of Picture Certification) has not requested even a single edit to be made itself. Violence and closeness are kept to a bare minimum, and everything is done within the parameters of the law. The film is intended to be family-friendly entertainment, and it was taken into consideration production of the film, and the CBFC was aware of this.”
The film also can become Shahid Kapoor’s longest film to date due to its official run duration of around 175 minutes, or 2 hours and 55 minutes, according to the official release date. Interestingly, the original Telugu picture had a lower running duration, clocking in at 2 hours and 40 minutes.
According to a trade expert, it doesn’t matter how long the film is since some of the finest films made in India and throughout the globe have been quite long. Pushpa, which was just released, is 2 hours and 59 minutes in length and praised by those who have seen it. 83, Pushpa, and Spider-Man: No Way Home will also be showing simultaneously, making it difficult for the theatres to handle all of the shows at once. All four films have a total running duration of more than 2 hours and 25 minutes.”
Jersey, directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri and starring Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur, also features Pankaj Kapur and Mrunal Thakur in crucial parts.
