Jersey Update: After a long wait, Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’ has finally hit the screens. Unlike biggies like KGF2 and RRR, Jersey had a slow start on the first day of the opening. While Yash starrer KGF 2 is selling like hotcakes and captivating the audiences in the theatres, Shahid’s Jersey is struggling for the same.
With the slow start, Jersey has minted over Rs.3.25 crores on the first day at the box office. As per the reports published in Pinkvilla, Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey was released on over 2400-2500 screens pan India. Also, the international market has welcomed the movie with 900 screens worldwide.
Now coming to the magnum opus, KGF 2, the movie will rake in the moolah this weekend by crossing the mark of the Rs 300 crore club.

Famous trade analyst Akshaye Rathi has made two predictions about the movies’ business at the box office. First, Jersey may not have a good start initially but will catch the pace after some time. Second, apropos of what he said in the first prediction, the only factor that may help the movie is the mouth-to-mouth publicity.
Shahid Kapoor has stolen the show once again by delivering one of the unforgettable performances of his career.
Not only this, the Jersey Telugu version actor Nani couldn’t stop raving about the riveting performance of Shahid Kapoor in the movie.
