Ranveer considers the film to be a must watch and is hopeful that the whole of India will watch it and celebrate the girl child in their families! He hopes the film’s impact triggers a positive social change in our country.
He says, “I think Jayeshbhai is a very important film for the times that we live in. I think it holds up a mirror to some of the ills that are in our society. I am very glad that I had this opportunity to be a part of a film that has such a relevant and pertinent social message, yet is being loved and appreciated as an entertainer. It's one of the things that the purist in me had always hoped for, that through my craft, through art I am able to affect social change.”
Ranveer adds, “It's happened to me, you know, sometimes I watch certain films that have had a deep effect on the way I think, my thought process. I have seen social change come about after a film releases and that is the true power of cinema. I am really glad that there are signs that we, as the team of Jayeshbhai Jordaar, have been able to harness that power of cinema and affect people's attitude and hopefully, affect social change in a positive way.”
