Ahead of the release of Shahid Kapoor's sports drama Jersey, the makers have shared the actor's journey during the making of the film. The actor had suffered a serious injury on his lip an received 25 stitches while batting on the field without a helmet. 

The behind-the-scene video shows Shahid slogging on the field to find perfection in his batting. He gets hurt during shots and screams “I have b*lls” and continues on.

The actor had grievously hurt his lip during the making of the film and had to get 25 stitches. The shoot was stopped for several weeks in order to let Shahid recover. The video shows how Shahid was bleeding profusely and held his lip as it continued to bleed. Blood spots are seen on his tee and handkerchief as he tries to stop it. The actor and his team couldn't fathom the seriousness of the injury and only after the bleeding didn't stop, someone suggested, “Doctor ke paas chalein (shall we go to the doctor)?" 


Talking about the injury, Shahid had recently revealed on Instagram, "My strongest memory of Jersey will be that I felt that I will never look the same again.”

The first part of the video also shows the making of the film two years ago before the world was hit by the coronavirus pandemic. In the second part, the crew members are seen in masks, clearly indicating how the world changed in that time.
