The film has been postponed several times in the past owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 36-year-old actor, whose last release was ”83”, said he is looking forward to the release of ”Jayeshbhai Jordaar”.
“Jayesh is a character that I have never attempted before, it was completely new for me to embody which was very exciting. I saw the prospect of creating something unique and original as a performer, it’s been a very fulfilling process.
“What I was attracted to is how he evolves into a hero and what he pulls off is remarkable and truly super. He is a superhero of a very unconventional type,” Singh said in a statement.
The movie marks a reunion for Singh and Maneesh Sharma, who gave the actor his break in Bollywood with the 2010 hit film ”Band Baaja Baaraat”.
“Jayeshbhai Jordaar” also marks the Bollywood debut of “Arjun Reddy” star Shalini Pandey. The film also features Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah. This is Yash Raj Films’ third film release announcement this week, following Shah Rukh Khan-led ”Pathaan” (January 25, 2023) and ”Prithviraj”, a period drama headlined by Akshay Kumar which will be released on June 3.
