Jayeshbhai Jordaar will be Ranveer Singh’s next release after ’83, the film is directed by debutant writer-director Divyang Thakkar

In the midst of working on ’83, actor Ranveer Singh has signed up another film. He will play a Gujarati in Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) Jayeshbhai Jordaar, to be helmed by debutant writer-director Divyang Thakkar.

The actor calls it a “miracle script”. The project, a humorous entertainer set in Gujarat, is being produced by YRF’s homegrown producer Maneesh Sharma, who also discovered Divyang, and it will go on floors this October.

Describing the film, Ranveer says: “‘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.”
