And the makers have revealed the lead actress of Ranveer Singh's Jayeshbhai Jordaar and it's none another than Arjun Reddy actress Shalini Pandey, who impressed everyone with her rock-solid performance in that intense love story drama. Now, it will be interesting to see how Shalini will essay the new character in her big Bollywood debut.
Describing the film, Ranveer Singh earlier said, "Jayeshbhai... is a film with a big heart. In its concept as well as in its appeal, it encompasses the broadest spectrum of the cinema-loving audience - it's 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 humorous and poignant, 'Jayeshbhai...' is right up there with the most solid on-paper material I've ever come across."
He said: "I have been immensely fortunate to have collaborated with some of the finest filmmakers of our country. It is humbling and 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 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 Ranveer's next release after "'83", in which the actor will be seen as former Indian cricket team captain Kapil Dev. Producer Maneesh Sharma said Thakkar's script is an example of 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," added Sharma, who directed Ranveer in their maiden film "Band Baaja Baaraat".
