Abhishek
Madrecha
On
Preparation
For
His
Role
In
Jersey

When
asked
about
the
preparation
for
his
role
in
Jersey,
Abhishek
Madrecha
said,
“The
prep
for
Jersey
was
quite
a
ride.
In
order
to
fit
and
justify
the
part
the
role
demanded
a
certain
level
of
physical
fitness.
Cricket
being
core
to
the
film,
all
of
us
had
subscribed
to
rigorous
training
sessions
that
went
on
for
about
two
months
before
the
filming.
Being
a
cricket
enthusiast
surely
helped,
but
there
was
so
much
more
we
learnt
once
we
all
padded
up
and
hit
the
field.
We
had
to
master
shots
such
as
cover
drive,
square
cut,
Straight
drive
and
pull
shot
which
were
some
of
the
core
focus
areas
during
our
training.
All
credit
goes
to
our
team
of
amazing
instructors
including
Oninder
Singh
Gill,
Rajeev
and
Harshul
who
equally
sweat
it
out
with
us
to
ensure
we
get
it
right.”

“So
all
in
all,
it
was
a
lot
of
hard
work
and
sweat
put
in
by
the
entire
team
to
make
this
happen.
After
undergoing
the
prep,
I
truly
have
immense
respect
for
all
sportspeople
who
commit
their
lives
to
training
and
work
so
hard
every
single
day,” he
added.

Working
Experience
With
Shahid
Kapoor,
Pankaj
Kapur
And
Mrunal
Thakur

Abhishek
Madrecha
praised
Shahid
Kapoor,
Mrunal
Thakur
and
Pankaj
Kapur
for
their
performances
and
behaviour
towards
him.
The
actor
said
that
he
had
a
wonderful
experience
working
with
Shahid,
Mrunal
and
Pankaj.
He
said,
“Being
on
the
same
set
as
actors
like
Shahid
Kapoor,
Pankaj
sir
and
Mrunal
was
a
wonderful
experience.
It
was
nothing
less
than
a
dream
team.
Shahid
is
so
warm
and
humble
as
a
person.
I
remember
when
I
first
met
him,
he
was
very
welcoming
and
sweet
which
instantly
settled
all
the
nerves
I
had
before
my
first
scene
with
him.
As
a
viewer,
I
have
been
in
awe
of
some
of
his
work
across

Udta
Punjab,
Jab
We
Met,
Haider

and

Kaminey

to
name
a
few,
and
to
be
in
such
close
proximity
of
the
star
I’ve
always
admired
was
beyond
magical.
Pankaj
sir
is
a
true
legend.
He
was
so
encouraging
on
set
that
before
any
shot,
all
he
would
say
is
‘just
go
for
it’
and
it’s
great
to
have
such
stalwarts
motivate
you.
Coming
to
Mrunal,
although
I
only
had
a
few
scenes
with
her,
she
has
a
great
vibe
and
energy.
She’s
always
smiling
and
extremely
talented
as
an
actor.
I
consider
myself
extremely
fortunate
and
blessed
to
have
had
such
amazing
people
and
actors
around.”

What
Abhishek
Madrecha
Learnt
From
Gowtam
Tinnanuri?

Abhishek
Madrecha
also
said
that
he
has
learned
many
things
from
director
Gowtam
Tinnanuri.
“Gowtam
Sir
is
as
cool
as
a
cucumber.
Despite
all
the
chaos
and
running
around
on
set,
his
calming
aura
just
made
you
feel
that
everything
is
under
control.
I
consider
it
an
honour
to
have
worked
with
him.
He
was
such
a
guide
and
his
brief
really
helped
me
get
into
the
skin
of
my
character,”
the
actor
added.

Fun
Memories
From
The
Sets
Of
Jersey

While
concluding
the
chat
with
us,
Abhishek
Madrecha
shared
some
fun
moments
from
the
sets
of
Jersey.
He
said,
“There
was
a
scene
where
we
had
to
pop
open
soda
bottles
and
celebrate
our
win.
I
remember
the
countless
retakes
we
did
because
the
bottles
wouldn’t
open
on
action
and
the
eventually
did
when
the
Director
announced
cut
and
all
of
us
had
soda
stains
all
over
our
Jerseys.
It
was
quite
hilarious.
So
many
times
during
the
match
sequences,
I
would
blurt
out
well
done
Shahid
instead
of
his
character
name
Arjun
and
it
would
trigger
an
instant
laughter.
So
many
times,
the
cricket
ball
wouldn’t
hit
us
as
it’s
supposed
to
and
I
even
got
hit
with
the
ball
once
on
my
chest.
But
as
they
say,
no
pain
no
gain
(chuckles).”
