Ranveer Singh is coming together with YRF for a project titled 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar' the script for which has been by debutant writer-director Divyang Thakkar. Ranveer seems to be in love with the script seeing as how he even called it ‘a miracle script’. Divyang is all set to direct Ranveer in this humourous entertainer set in Gujarat while Ranveer will also be seen playing the role of a Gujarati man for the first time. Ranveer is already in the midst of shooting for the film and has now travelled to Gujarat to shoot for the second schedule of the film. Accompanying him is the lead actress of the film, Shalini Pandey, the 'Arjun Reddy' famed girl who is making her big Bollywood debut with YRF.
“It is an extensive shooting schedule in the heartland of Gujarat. All details are being kept under wrap because crucial portions of the film is going to be shot in the state. Ranveer has a huge fan following in Gujarat as he has mesmerised them with his performances and there is expectation that massive crowds will fill up shooting locations. The production team wants to shoot as smoothly as possible and are being light lipped about the venues. The film is set in Gujarat, so this schedule is extremely vital. The team will keep a low profile while shooting in the state. Ranveer and Shalini are both heading to Gujarat today,” informs a source privy to this information.
Ranveer has transformed himself for his role much like he usually does and so much so that he was almost unrecognisable in his first look from the film. Ranveer also won't be playing the typical male hero and from the first look it's quite evident that the film is about women empowerment.
While speaking about his look, Ranveer had said, “As Charlie Chaplin once said, ‘To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it!’. Jayeshbhai is an unlikely hero - an ordinary man, who ends up doing something extraordinary when he’s hurled into a threatening situation. Jayeshbhai is sensitive and compassionate. He believes in equal rights between men and women in a society that is deeply rooted in patriarchal ideals, practices and doctrines. Jayeshbhai presented an exciting challenge - to deconstruct myself in order to transform into a kind of character I’ve never inhabited before.”
Ranveer has certainly carved a name for himself in the industry with his impeccable acting skills and his choice of scripts that have always been exceptional. His sense of portraying characters like that of Alauddin Khillji in 'Padmaavat' and his role in a film like 'Gully Boy' proves just how talented he really is. Today, he has amassed nationwide love as an actor across all demographics. So, 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar', being produced by YRF’s homegrown producer and film-maker Maneesh Sharma, is definitely a film to watch out for!
