Ranveer Singh on signing YRF comedy Jayeshbhai Jordaar : 'Most solid on-paper material I’ve come across'
Ranveer Singh will play a Gujarati in Yash Raj Films' upcoming comedy, Jayeshbhai Jordaar
Ranveer Singh has given his nod to Yash Raj Films' next, titled Jayeshbhai Jordaar. Billed as a quirky comedy, the film will be helmed by writer-director Divyang Thakkar and will be set in Gujarat.
Confirming the news with DNA, Ranveer said that Jayeshbhai Jordaar "encompasses the broadest spectrum of the cinema-loving audience".
"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," he was quoted as saying.
The film will be backed by Maneesh Sharma, who made his directorial debut in Ranveer Singh's first Hindi film, Band Baaja Baraat in 2010.
