It's impossible to choose a favourite from Ranveer Singh's career, whether it's the emotional Lootera (2013), the dramatic Padmaavat (2018), or the nearly faultless Gully Boy (2019). However, Jayeshbhai Jordaar is the actor's favourite film. With his latest film, he does something he hasn't done before: uses cinema as a vehicle for social change. In Divyang Thakkar's directorial debut, Singh plays a mild-mannered Gujarati guy who stands up for his wife and unborn daughter, making a strong case for girl child rights in our society.

The actor told Mid Day that Jayeshbhai Jordaar is an important film for the times we live in. It reflects some of the faults of our culture. Singh is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a film with a timely and important social message. It's something the purist in the actor has always wished for: the ability to affect social change via my profession and art.

Films in the recent past have had an enduring impact on the audience's thinking, from Thappad (2020) starting a debate about domestic abuse to Jai Bhim (2021) emphasising atrocities against marginalised populations.

Singh believes that the social comedy, which also stars Boman Irani, Ratna Pathak Shah, and Shalini Pandey, achieves more than just entertainment value. The actor occasionally watches films that have a profound impact on the way he thinks. Singh has seen social transformation occur after the release of a film. That is where cinema's genuine power lies. They hope to transform people's attitudes in a positive way with Jayeshbhai Jordaar.

The recent success of RRR and KGF: Chapter 2 has renewed interest in larger-than-life characters. However, the actor claims that his character's unique heroics drew him in.

Singh concluded by saying that Jayesh is an unassuming, everyday Joe who, when confronted with a difficult situation, summons the courage from inside. When the character goes on this adventure, it causes him to grow, and what he accomplishes is remarkable.
