Ranveer Singh has worked with top filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Rohit Shetty, Zoya Akhtar and Kabir Khan. The actor, who’s gearing up for Kabir Singh’s '83, based on India’s World Cup, has signed his next film. He will be seen playing a Gujarati in Yash Raj Films' Jayeshbhai Jordaar, which will be helmed by debutant writer-director, Divyang Thakkar.

Taking to social media, he called 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 is expected to go on floors this October.

Confirming his next to be Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Ranveer Singh posted a photo and wrote, Its a ‘miracle script’!!! Thrilled to announce my next film - ‘JAYESHBHAI JORDAAR’ @yrf #JayeshbhaiJordaar”

Sharing a funny video with the debut director, Divyang Thakkar, asking him if he trust him in his debut film, and the director replies, No! He captions the video, Where in the world did this kid come from?!?!? #DivyangThakkar is straight up JORDAAR !!! @yrf #JayeshbhaiJordaar”


Describing the film, Ranveer told IANS,  "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 amiracle 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."

The Gully Boy actor further added, "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."

Maneesh Sharma, who has also directed Singh’s debut film Band Baaja Baaraat, told IANS, “What makes this a truly thrilling venture is that I see this as Ranveer and I apaying 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."
