He was gushed over the fact his film is getting a remake in Hindi and that Shahid Kapoor is playing his role. He was also praising Kapoor for his performance in his past films. Nani said that the director left him stunned when he said how happy the director is with the final output of Jersey’s Hindi version.
He said, “Gowtam (Tinnanuri) showed me a few pictures - the director of the original, and it looks very promising. Gowtam is somebody who is a man of very few words, even if he likes something - I know it but not everyone can say it - I can see it on his face when he likes something. He doesn’t say much, but when Gowtam told me how happy he was with the output of the Hindi version, I already can imagine how brilliantly it would have come out.”
Nani also said that he firmly believes that Shahid will exceed him with the Hindi remake, “Hundred per cent. I think he will do it better. He is a brilliant performer and can really get into the skin of the character”, he added.
