Mrunal Thakur has a new opinion on remakes 

A negative aspect of Bollywood is its dependancy on remakes. Several iconic and superhit Bollywood movies have been remakes. Upcoming sports drama 'Jersey' starring Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur is also one of them. Mrunal was actually against the remakes as they borrow someone else's creativity but after working on 'Jersey', she has developed a new perspective about the issue.

She says, "My experience if you ask me, I feel what matters the most to me is the story. Of the story of the film is good, it deserves to reach the globe. I think debate karke fayda kya hai? For example, Forrest Gump was made, how many Indian would have really watched it? So thanks to Aamir (Khan), who is coming up with Laal Singh Chaddha, and through him Indian audience will get to know about Forrest Gump. So I feel Jersey is a story which deserves to be told, and we need to celebrate those moments that we have in that movie.”

'Jersey' is remake of the Telugu film of same name. It follows the story of a washed up cricker who gets back in the game for his son's wish.
