A talented but failed cricketer decides to return to cricket in his late thirties driven by the desire to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfil his son’s wish for a jersey as a gift. JERSEY is the story of a common man with big dreams. In 1986, Arjun Talwar (Shahid Kapoor) is a talented cricket player from Chandigarh. He’s in love with Vidya (Mrunal Thakur). Vidya’s father opposes their relationship and hence, both elope and get married. Sadly, Arjun fails to make it to the Punjab Ranji team. Arjun’s coach and mentor, Coach Bali (Pankaj Kapur), advises him to try next year. But Arjun decides to quit. He takes up a government job and shifts to a government quarter with Vidya. Vidya gives birth to a son, Ketan aka Kittu (Ronit Kamra). In 1996, the lives of Talwars are not going great. Arjun has been suspended on corruption charges. A lawyer has told him to pay a bribe of Rs. 50,000 to get back his job. However, Arjun refuses to do so. Their kitchen is running thanks to Vidya’s job at a five star hotel. She is frustrated as she feels Arjun is not doing anything with his life. Kittu, meanwhile, has been enrolled into cricket coaching. One day, he asks Arjun to buy him the team India jersey. Arjun promises to buy him one on his birthday, which falls a few days later. However, Arjun learns that the jersey costs Rs. 500 and hence, it’s beyond his budget. He tries to take a loan from his friends but his efforts prove futile. Vidya refuses to hand him the money as she feels that she needs to save for far more important expenditures. Meanwhile, Coach Bali tells Arjun that a charity match will be played between Punjab and New Zealand. The Punjab team is looking for a batsman. Arjun agrees to play the match, especially when he learns that each player will be paid Rs. 1,000. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
