There were reports that Adah Sharma will be doing an item number in the Nani starrer Jersey. However, the actor has clarified that it is not true. In her tweet, Adah Sharma wrote, “Guys! not true! I usually let false news die down but been getting so many messages so thought I would clear it out. I'm not doing a special song in a film as of now (sic).”

It may be recalled here that Adah is currently busy with the Dr Rajasekar starrer Kalki in which she plays one of the female leads.

Jersey is being bankrolled by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under the banner of Sithara Entertainments and helmed by director Gowtam Tinnanuri. The film will have Anirudh composing the tunes, Navin Nooli in charge of editing and Sanu Varghese cranking the camera. Jersey has Nani and Shraddha Srinath playing the lead pair with Sathyaraj, Brahmaji and Ronit Kamra in supporting roles.

The first look poster of Jersey, released in September last year, made it clear that it is a film about cricket. The jersey hanging in a cupboard along with the cricket gear around it did go viral among the netizens. In fact, Nani had expressed his desire to star in a sports based film on the lines of the Aamir Khan starrer Dangal and looks like his wish is coming true with Jersey. Reports are that Nani plays a 36-year-old with a wife and child but his passion for cricket makes him want to make it to the Indian cricket team.

The shooting of Jersey is currently under progress and it is reaching the final stages. The post production will begin soon and plans are on to release it on April 19.

It is reported that the movie has done a business of Rs 52 crore. According to reliable sources, it is said that the satellite rights has been sold for Rs 12 crore while Hindi dubbing rights have been sold for Rs 6 crore. While the overseas rights were sold for Rs 4 crore and the theatrical rights of two Telugu states at Rs 30 crore.
