After watching the movie, Nani shared a heartfelt message on social media, stating, “Today it felt like Arjun (his character in the film) came back from the skies to relive the journey and say farewell again. Heart is heavy and full.”

Anjana also took to Instagram, sharing a video of Junnu playing the Jersey theme song on the piano for his father. Apparently, Junnu had just learned the song, adding a special touch to the family’s movie night. “Junnu just started learning the theme song yesterday,” Anjana wrote, “It's a work in progress, but needless to say, both my 'Arjuns' make my heart swell with pride!”

Anjana also reminisced about the first time she saw Jersey, highlighting the film's enduring impact. “Celebrating 5 years of my most favourite film 'Jersey' today!” she wrote. “I can still vividly remember the experience of watching it in the theatre – cheering, rooting for the characters… Bawled too, of course!”
