As a music composer from Tamil film industry, Anirudh made his debut in Tollywood with the Pawan Kalyan starrer Agnyathavasi but the film bombed at the box office. Following this, sources in the know say that he lost the opportunity to work with Jr NTR in his upcoming film Aravindha Sametha.

However, Anirudh is now onboard Jersey, starring Nani in the lead role. Reports from Tollywood are that he had quoted Rs 1.25 crores to work on this sports entertainer but eventually settled for Rs 80 lakhs. The rock star musician has started to compose for Jersey, reveal sources in the know.

The first look poster of Jersey made it clear that it will be 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.

Jersey will be produced by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under the banner of Sithara Entertainments. The film is being helmed by director Gowtam Tinnanuri.

In an interview to the FirstPost, the director has told. “It’s a story about a late bloomer who realizes his talent at a certain age and pursues his dream to join Indian cricket team. It’s a period sports drama and the story takes place between 1986 and 1996… As a subject, I want this story to reach as many people as possible. With his universal appeal, Nani can take this story far and wide. I also really like him as an actor.”

The film has debutant Reba Monica John pairing up with Nani and the hero will be seen appearing in three different looks.
