The film's producer Aman Gill said in a statement, “Diwali is the biggest family festival of the year, and is the perfect time to bring ‘Jersey,’ a family sports drama to audiences, a time when all families can come together to celebrate this journey.”
Jersey is presented by Allu Aravind, directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri and produced by Gill, Dil Raju and S.Naga Vamsi. It is 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.
