Ever since the trailer of Ranveer Singh’s film Jayeshbhai Jordaar got released, all eyes have been on him. The actor is currently promoting the film. Ranveer plays an unlikely hero who fights for his unborn child and wife. In the process, he has to confront his family, which represents our patriarchal society . In a recent interview, the actor compares himself to his character Jayeshbhai.
Ranveer Singh feels there are similarities between his cinematic journey and Jayeshbhai’s character arc in the film. He claims, “There are several parallels between my life and Jayesh’s life. Sometimes, you are faced with daunting circumstances when you think how am I going to possibly overcome this to achieve what I want to achieve and there is some amount of courage and fortitude that propels your forward, that you tap into overcoming all of those obstacles and adversities that gets you to where you want to get to and you go about it like your life depends on it.
The superstar continues, “I found that in playing Jayesh I was able to tap into my own life’s experiences. With the odds stacked against oneself, you turn to the power that love gives you. In Jayesh’s case it’s the love for his wife and daughter. In my case, it’s the love for my parents and my desire to make them proud by achieving something which has propelled me forward. Jayeshbhai and I are both accidental heroes!
He goes on to say, “So yes, there are several parallels in the journey of the character and my own journey. A performance is most effective when one as an actor is able to tap into the life experiences that you’ve lived through, if you are able to tap into that and pour that into the performance, that special source that allows it to resonate in people’s hearts and make the performance effective.
Jayeshbhai Jordaarn also stars Arjun Reddy fame Shalini Pandey, who makes her Bollywood debut opposite Ranveer. The film, directed by Divyang Thakkar, will release worldwide on May 13.
