Ranveer Singh reveals wife Deepika Padukone’s ‘brutally honest’ reaction to his Jayeshbhai Jordaar avatar

actor Ranveer Singh revealed his wife Deepika Padukone’s reaction to his Jayeshbhai Jordaar avatar in an interview. In the upcoming drama-comedy, the actor plays a man struggling to protect his wife and unborn daughter from the forces of patriarchy.

He told Pinkvilla that he deeply respects Deepika’s opinion and said that she is brutally honest with him. Ranveer said after watching the Jayeshbhai Jordaar trailer, Deepika repeated something she said to him after seeing his transformation in sports drama 83.

He said: “Deepika is someone who can be brutally honest. She never lies to me, she always tells me how it is. And because it’s coming from her, someone I’m closest to in my life, so when she compliments me, it applies differently.”

Ranveer continued, “She said something that went straight to my heart after 83 and after the trailer of Jayeshbhai. She said: “Man, I don’t think I’ve seen that in … What you do is pretty unprecedented because you’re really mainstream, but you’re always able to create distinctive characters. I don’t know of any other reference point of a mainstream actor who is able to go into characterization so clearly and yet be fully mainstream. It’s like when they see you, they see no sign of you. They have pushed it on a scale that is unprecedented.’ She said that to me after Kapil, and she repeated it after seeing my avatar as Jayesh.”

Ranveer also expressed his gratitude for the progression of his career and the films he has made. He highlighted the diversity of his characters – Alaudin Khilji, Simmba, Murad from Gully Boy and most recently Kapil Dev from 83. Deepika on the other hand was last seen in Gehraiyaan which got her great reviews but it was self polarizing.

Jayeshbhai Jordaar also plays Shalini Pandey, Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah. The film is directed by Divyang Thakkar and is set to hit theaters on May 13.
