Director Divyang Thakkar was Ratna’s follower during his theatre days and now he will be directing her in the film. Sharing about it, Ratna stated, “Some months ago, a young actor came to me with a script. Actors making movies can be tricky, so I was cautious as I began reading, but was thoroughly entertained by the end of the script. The story not only had a message but also had a heart.”
She concluded by talking on ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ film stating, “It talks about issues close to my heart.”
Earlier when Ranveer was asked about working with Divyang, he had told, “I’m glad that today I find myself in a position where I can recognize exceptional talent and wholeheartedly back the vision of a brilliant new writer-director like Divyang. ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ will be my next release after ’83.”
