Ranveer Singh has films lined up, one after another.
The actor has signed his latest film, a Yash Raj Film production tilted Jayeshbhai Jordaar. which will be directed by debutante Divyang Thakkar. The producer is Maneesh Sharma who directed Singh’s debut Bolly film Band Baaja Baaraat (2010).
Speaking to DNA about the project, Ranveer said, “Jayeshbhai is a film with a big heart. In its concept and appeal, it encompasses the broadest spectrum of the cinema-loving audience — it’s a movie 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 project. Both humourous and poignant, Jayeshbhai is right up there with the most solid on-paper material I’ve come across.”
“I’ve been immensely fortunate to have collaborated with some of the finest filmmakers in our country. It is gratifying that they believed in my craft and chose me to lead their cinematic vision.
“All that I have achieved as an actor today is due to these titanic forces showing 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 is currently working on film ’83, helmed by Kabir Khan of Bajrangi Bhaijaan fame, in which the actor plays the lead role as Kapil Dev, the then captain of the Indian cricket team. The upcoming film is based on India’s World Cup victory in 1983.
He will also be seen in Karan Johar’s multi starrer period drama Takht which will feature Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar.
