The news of Yash Raj Films and the celebration of its 50 glorious years in cinema has been abuzz for quite a while. Reports suggest that Aditya Chopra is all set to start the celebration with aplomb with his most special film Jayeshbhai Jordaar which stars Ranveer Singh in the lead.
A source in the know informs, “Ranveer Singh plays a feeble frail Gujarati man who overnight acquires super-hero powers. It is like the Malayalam blockbuster Minnal Murali in concept, but designed as a comedy.”
The film is directed by debutante Divyang Thakkar and will be produced by Maneesh Sharma. Top sources revealed, “Adi wants to celebrate 50 years of YRF in a big way because he has the biggest slate of films in the industry. Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Prithviraj, Shamshera, Pathaan, Tiger and two more unannounced films make for the YRF50 slate and plans are being made to celebrate each of these films and the company’s golden milestone in the most unique and innovative manner. The celebrations will get underway with Jayeshbhai Jordaar, a film that Adi, Maneesh, Ranveer and the entire team at YRF feel is a very special film that will touch everyone’s heart and bring back the community watching experience of cinema!”
Furthermore, the source continued, “YRF was clear that if the festivities have to restart, it needs to begin with a project that will get universal love. They are confident that Ranveer Singh in and as the unlikely hero Jayeshbhai Jordaar, will steal people’s hearts and they want this euphoria to kickstart the YRF50 activities. So, all the fanfare will start from this juncture and YRF will unveil various plans that will see the fans get to interact with their favourite superstars in ways that they haven’t done before all year round.”
The film is slated to release on May 13, 2022.
