Ranveer Singh and Yash Raj Films have collaborated for a film that Ranveer has called ‘a miracle script’ written by debutant writer-director Divyang Thakkar. Divyang is directing Ranveer in a humorous entertainer set in Gujarat and we can see him playing the role of a Gujarati man for the first time with Jayeshbhai Jordaar. Ranveer is now traveling to Gujarat to shoot the second schedule of the film along with co-star Shalini Pandey, who is making her big Bollywood debut with YRF.
A source close to the development said, “It is an extensive shooting schedule in the heartland of Gujarat. All details are being kept under wrap because crucial portions of the film are going to be shot in the state. Ranveer has a huge fan following in Gujarat as he has mesmerized them with his performances and there is an 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.”
Ranveer has shed a lot of weight for the look and it was an immediate hit. Rumors say that Ranveer isn’t going to play the alpha hero as played by leading men in Bollywood. 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.”
