Vivek Agnihotri Takes A Brutal Dig At Ranveer Singh
The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri was recently seen mocking the Padmavat actor Ranveer Singh for promoting his film Jayeshbhai Jordaar in an indecent manner. In an interview with Kushal Mehra, Vivek Agnihotri said, “Ranveer Singh, the so-called number 1 star. People don’t get tired of praising him. His film Jayeshbhai Jordaar, which was on female foeticide about how people should not kill girls. What a wonderful subject but then how were they promoting the film?
He added, “Ranveer went shirtless and was dancing with 25 girls during the promotions. He was like just dancing with 25 sexy and glamorous girls. Nobody knew that the film was about female foeticide. It’s not a fashion show or some comedy film. Why would people go and see that?”
Jayeshbhai Jordaar Box Office Performance
For the unversed, the Yash Raj Films venture Jayeshbhai Jordaar turned out to be a major flop of the year, earning a total of 15.59 cr domestically. The film also emerged as Ranveer’s second-lowest opening grosser.
Jayeshbhai Jordaar was all set to hit the big screens in October 2020. However, owing to the pandemic-induced restrictions, the premiere of the film was postponed indefinitely. The film was released theatrically on 13 May 2022. Helmed by Divyang Thakkar, the plot of the film sheds light on the important social issue of eliminating female foeticide. The film stars Ranveer Singh in the titular role as the son of a traditional Gujarati sarpanch, who believes in equal rights between males and females in society.
