Its business was affected by Bollywood releases such as Runway 34, Heropanti 2, and the Hollywood film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Meanwhile, Yash starrer KGF Chapter 2 continued to hamper the growth of the films by breaking several records.
Jersey the remake of the 2019 Telugu movie of the same name, is directed by Tinnanauri, who was also the brain behind the original.

Also starring Pankaj Kapur, Jersey is presented by Allu Arvind and backed by Aman Gill, Dil Raju, and S Naga Vamsi.
