"It's very difficult to work on remakes." - Shahid Kapoor

Thursday, November 25, 2021 • Tamil Comments

The focus of fans and media has shifted towards Shahid Kapoor as the trailer of his upcoming sports drama 'Jersey' was released recently. Shahid Kapoor stars as a washed up cricketer in this film which is the remake of a Telugu film of same name. This isn't the first time that Shahid is starring in the remake of a South Indian blockbuster which was released not so long ago. He previously played the lead in 'Kabir Singh' which was a remake of 'Arjun Reddy'.

During the trailer launch event, Shahid was asked to share his viewpoint on remakes to which he replied, “See, it definitely helps when you do a remake. It’s very helpful to know what ur doing. I’ve had some very scary experiences so I much confess that being a part of a remake is definitely helpful as an actor because you understand what the story is, how the filmmaker wants to express himself while putting a story together and bringing his vision to it.”

The actor went on to state that sometimes working on remakes can be actually tougher than working on an original script. He said, "When I did Kabir Singh and now when I’ve done this (Jersey) I’ve realized it’s very difficult to do a remake. Sometimes it’s even tougher than doing an original character. You have to make it fresh. It cannot look like a copy paste. It cannot look like you are just picking up something and re-creating it. You have to rediscover it all over again.”
