Talking about veteran actor Ratna Pathak Shah and ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ director: Divyang Thakkar. Divyang was Ratna’s mentee during his theatre days and now he will be directing her in the film.
Ratna was talking to Mid Day about this upcoming project of hers and said,
“Some months ago, a young actor came to me with a script. Actors making movies can be tricky, so I was cautious as I began reading, but was thoroughly entertained by the end of the script. The story not only had a message but also had a heart.”
She completed her interview by talking about the subject of Jayeshbhai Jordaar stating,
“It talks about issues close to my heart.”
Sometime back when Ranveer Singh was asked about his working experience with Director: Divyang Thakkar.
“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.”
Jayeshbhai Jordaar is produced by Maneesh Sharma under Aditya Chopra’s home banner Yash Raj Films.
