Ranveer Singh has been consistently impressing the audience with his screen characters – right from his role in Band Baaja Baarat to Padmaavat, Simmba to Gully Boy. Now Kabir Khan’s ’83 will see him in a yet new avatar. However, it doesn’t stop there. Post ’83, the actor is all set to stun fans once again with his rather unique role in a new project that he’s announced. Yes, Ranveer Singh will soon be seen in a Gujarati avatar and that too in a Yash Raj Film.
The actor took to Instagram to share the news of him signing on Yash Raj Films’ Jayeshbhai Jordaar and he did it in his quirky way too. Just like the title, his character will be equally eccentric. Keeping in mind Singh’s forte, the movie set in Gujarat is a total entertainer. The film will be a comedy and have Ranveer in a gujju avatar will surely be a treat. He also shared news of the film being written and directed by debutant Divyang Thakkar and will be co-produced by Maneesh Sharma. The film will go on floors this October. Check out his video right here:
Calling it ‘a miracle script’, Ranveer says, “All that I have achieved as an actor today is due to these titanic cinematic forces having put their faith in me. I’m glad that today I find myself in a position where I can recognise exceptional talent and wholeheartedly back the vision of a brilliant new writer-director like Divyang. Jayeshbhai Jordaar will be my next release after 83.”
Ranveer adds, “Jayeshbhai is a film with a big heart. Its a film for everyone! It is, in fact, a ‘miracle script’ that YRF found for me out of nowhere. The sheer brilliance of the writing compelled me to immediately green-light this film. Both humourous and poignant, Jayeshbhai is right up there with the most solid on-paper material I’ve ever come across”
Maneesh says, “For a producer and a filmmaker, the holy grail is a script that is a balance of a relevant message delivered in an entertaining manner. What makes this a truly thrilling venture is that I see this as Ranveer and I ‘paying it forward’. Almost a decade ago, we started our journey together when YRF placed their faith in us newcomers and today we collaborate with another new talent to offer the audiences a content-driven mass entertainer.”
As for his next film ’83, the actor is currently in London where they are set to roll the first schedule of the film. Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more such updates and news.
