Yash Raj Film’s next titled ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ will have ‘Arjun Reddy’ actress Shalini Pandey opposite Ranveer Singh. The shooting will begin next month.
Speculations were rife that either ‘Simmba’ actress Sara Ali Khan or ‘Pati, Patni Aur Woh’ star Ananya Pandey would star opposite in Ranveer Singh in YRF’ ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’. Putting a rest to all the rumours, the makers have finally announced the leading heroine of the Gujarati film drama. Yes Shalini Pandey’ of ‘Arjun Reddy’, a super-hit South film will be starring in the YRF’s big-budget film.
Ranveer Singh has been very ecstatic about the project and plans to finish shooting for the film before Karan Johar’s ‘Takht’. The makers had kind of decided that they wanted to launch a new face alongside Ranveer Singh. When Aadi (Aditya Chopra) of YRF saw Shalini Pandey’s screen-tests, he decided to launch her in Hindi films.
Shalini hails from theatre background which equips her with flawless acting skills, making her a desirable choice for the film. Apparently, YRF has already shortlisted a bunch of fresh faces that they will be launching in Bollywood in the coming years. Fortunately, Shalini happens to be the most promising out of the lot. The actress is already a renowned name down South.
The film ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ is the story of a Gujarati businessman played by Ranveer Singh. This film also maps the bridge between the two film fraternities who’ve always pitted against each other.
On the work front, Ranveer Singh will be seen in Kabir Khan’s ‘83’, a story based on the life of ace cricketer Kapil Dev. The team recently wrapped up the shooting schedule of the film. Ranveer and wife Deepika knocked it out of the park at the wrap-up party of the film. ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ will be his immediate release after ‘83’.
