Before lockdown in 2020, Shahid Kapoor had shot for Gowtam Tinnanuri film, Jersey in Chandigarh but the schedule was put on hold with the outbreak of a pandemic. The shooting for Jersey had resumed post lockdown was lifted but even during the stay-at-home orders by the government, Shahid had used the time productively by brushing up his skills. Shahid had even suffered an injury on the lower lip. Informing his fans about the same, Shahid had tweeted, "Thank you for all the concern. Yes, I have got a few stitches but am recovering fast. Jersey has taken a little bit of my blood but a script this good deserves that in the least. Have a good one you all. Keep it real. Make it count. Spread the love. Humanity above all."
Finally, good news for Shahid Kapoor fans as their favourite actor is all set to bring a smile on his audiences’ faces. Shahid’s film, Jersey got a theatrical release and will hit the big screens on Diwali this year. Sharing a picture of his look from the film, Shahid tweeted, “JERSEY releasing in theatres this DIWALI 5th November 2021. The triumph of the human spirit. A journey I am so very proud of. This ones for the TEAM...” Shahid’s wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor too, cheered for her husband and sharing the same picture on her Instagram handle, she wrote, “JERSEY. Hitting it out of the park this Diwali 2021.”
Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor headed off for a mini-vacation to Goa and the star-wife gave glimpses of their holiday on her IG stories. Sharing a picture of a plush swimming pool, Mira wrote, “Hello Goa”, while another photo was a glimpse of her chilling time with Shahid as she posted a picture of their feet. Shahid and Mira were snapped by the shutterbugs at the airport as they had headed off to Goa. The couple had kept their airport look casual.

When Shahid Kapoor had returned home, post the completion of his Jersey shoot, Mira Rajput Kapoor had given a glimpse of how something else was loved more than her by her ‘crush’. Mira had posted a coloured picture and the monochrome version of the same with the captions, “Crush is home but still long distance” and “Clearly that sweatshirt is loved more than me.” A few days ago, Shahid had requested the filmmakers to cast him in a film where he gets to be a ‘typecast hero’. Revealing the reason behind it, Shahid had written on his IG story, "My wife has fired me about how I am not doing a film which is fun and where I dance. Open invitation pl gimme something that allows me to please her... #typecast hero in need!! @mira.kapoor I am committed to the cause."
Shahid Kapoor’s film, Kabir Singh had received mixed reviews from the audience, as some criticised it to be violent and for how it portrays women, while for others the movie seemed to have hit the right cord. And his wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor, needless to say, belonged to the latter category as she had expressed via an Instagram post how proud she is of Shahid. Sharing a picture of Shahid from the film, Mira had written, “Aa zamane aazmaale rooth ta nahi, Faaslon se hausla ye toot'ta nahi. So proud of you baby. It’s your time to shine.” (Also Read: Akshay Kumar Reveals Twinkle Khanna Still Makes His Heart Flutter Even After 20 Years Of Marriage)
