Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], May 17: After Shahid Kapoor-starrer 'Jersey' turned out to be a disappointing affair at the box office, the makers are now all set to release the film on Netflix on May 20.

Trade experts felt that Jersey was not able to reach its potential because it faced competition from the actioner K.G.F: Chapter 2, which released a week before it.
