After playing Alauddin Khilji in Padmavat, rapper Murad Ahmed in Gully Boy and now preparing to play Kapil Dev in the upcoming cricket biopic '83, actor Ranveer Singh has always outdone himself. Next the actor will be seen playing a Gujarati in Yashraj's Jayeshbhai Jordaar.

The actor and Yash Raj Films are coming together on what Ranveer calls ‘a miracle script’ penned by debutant writer-director Divyang Thakkar. The first-timer will be directing Ranveer in what is a humourous entertainer set in Gujarat. The film is being produced by YRF’s homegrown producer Maneesh Sharma, who also discovered Divyang, and it will go on floors this October.

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. From Sanjay Leela Bhansali to Rohit Shetty, from Zoya Akhtar and Kabir Khan to Karan Johar – he has been a favourite of the biggest names in the business.

The actor has also been selective about the projects he takes up, His films like Padmaavat, in which he wowed the world with his portrayl of an anti-hero in Alauddin Khillji and Gully Boy, a content-driven film went on to become blockbusters. Today, Ranveer has amassed nationwide love as an actor across all demographics. "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 my next release after 83," says the actor, adding further, "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- its 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 humourous and poignant, Jayeshbhai is right up there with the most solid on-paper material I’ve ever come across."
