    Story In Detail

    After Arjun's son Ketan (Prit Kamani) hands over a copy of 'Jersey', a book based on his father, to two women readers, they pose a curious question to him which transports him back in time. The scene flashbacks to a cricket match where we see Arjun (Shahid Kapoor) in tremendous form, hitting the ball for fours and sixes while his girlfriend Vidhya (Mrunal Thakur) cheers for him from the stands.

    In the next shot which dates to ten years later, Arjun is seen asleep with his young son Ketan aka Kittu (Ronit Kamra) on his chest. Vidhya, now his wife, is in a slumber on a couch next to them. There are a few containers placed on the floor to collect water from the leaking roof. Fired from his job at Food Corporation of India on the charges of corruption, the former star domestic cricketer now lives off Vidhya's earnings.

    For some reason, Arjun keeps an arm's length from the game of cricket despite his mentor Coach Bhalla (Pankaj Kapur) trying to coax him to return back to his first love. However, when his son Kittu asks for a jersey as a birthday gift, little does Arjun know that he would soon embark on a journey of self-discovery and redemption to remain a 'hero' in his son's eyes even when the whole world has already tagged him as a loser.
