Ranveer Singh is on roll! After completing the shoot of Kabir Khan directorial ’83, the actor is back where he belongs to. Riding high on the success of his career, Ranveer Singh has started shooting for his next, Jayeshbhai Jordaar. Ranveer Singh and Yash Raj Films are coming together on what Ranveer has called ‘a miracle script’ penned by debutant writer-director Divyang Thakkar. The first-timer is directing Ranveer in a humourous entertainer set in Gujarat and the superstar will be seen playing the role of a Gujarati man for the first time. Naturally, the anticipation to see the first look of Ranveer from the film was immense.
To tease the fans, the makers have unveiled Ranveer’s first look as Jayeshbhai Jordaar from the film. In the still, Ranveer is seen to have visibly transformed himself again, shedding many kilos and he looks unrecognizable as a Gujarati man who is definitely trying to protect the women standing behind him. He isn’t the alpha hero as played by leading men in Bollywood and from the first look, it is obvious that the film will champion the cause of women empowerment.

Speaking about her character, Ranveer told Hindustan Times, “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.” (ALSO READ: Ranveer Singh’s Saucy Comment On Deepika Padukone’s Post Makes Her Say, 'Ghar Aaja, Mein Batati Hoon')
Ranveer has stamped his superstardom with his incredible body of work. He’s been consistently collaborating with all the top film-makers of the country and has also been displaying exceptional script-sense in selecting projects. He has instinctively backed stories like Padmaavat, in which he wowed the world with his portrayal of an anti-hero in Alauddin Khillji and extended his extraordinary range in Gully Boy, a content film that went on to become a blockbuster. Today, he has amassed nationwide love as an actor across all demographics. So, naturally, when Ranveer decides to back a rank new-comer, one can assume that Divyang is a very special talent to watch out for.
