Nani’s next upcoming film Jersey has already created lot of buzz in the film Industry. Earlier it was heard that Natural Star Nani will be seen essaying the role of cricketer in this sport based drama but now the sources close to the makers claim that Nani will be seen essaying the role of a doctor in this film Jersey, whose father was a cricketer (Nani). The movie is based on the relationship between father and son. In the month of June Nani shared a poster on social media sites and announced his project “Jersey”. The upcoming drama will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, of Sumanth’s Malli Raava fame and bankrolled by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under the banner of Sithara Entertainments. The regular shoot is expected to commence from the month of September. The production house Sitara Entertainment also wrote on Twitter, “We are very happy to be associated with Natural Star @NameisNani garu for such a prestigious venture #Jersey. #Jersey will be very high on emotions and will have never before visuals in this genre. Directed by @gowtam19 & Produced by @sitharaents @vamsi84.”
Recently during the media interaction Gowtam Tinnanuri opened up about Jersey and said, “It is a story about a late bloomer who realizes his talent at a certain age and pursues his dream to join the Indian cricket team. It is period sports drama and the story takes place between 1986 and 1996. With this movie Jersey I want this story to reach as many people as possible. With his universal appeal, Natural Star Nani can take this story far and wide. I also really like him as an actor.” It will be very interesting to see how Nani will justify with the role of Doctor as well as Cricketer.
The makers have roped Reba Monica John, the cousin of Anu Emmanuel, in Jersey to romance with Nani. She will make her Telugu debut with Jersey.
On the otherside, Nani is also playing doctor in Sriram Adittya’s directorial Venture Devadas in which Gentleman star will be seen with Nagarjuna.
