New Delhi: The Kashmir Files’ director Vivek Agnihotri shared his views about Ranveer Singh’s film Jayeshbhai Jordaar. While talking in an interview, the director lauded the film’s subject of female foeticide. However, he also slammed Ranveer for dancing shirtless with ‘25 women’ during the promotion of the film.
Yash Raj Film’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar revolves around female foeticide in a very casual yet impactful manner. In the movie Ranveer Singh who played the lead role of a caring husband and loving father fights for her unborn girl child. The film made a theatrical release on May 13.
While talking to Kushal Mehra, Vivek Agnihotri stated, “Ranveer Singh, the so called number 1 star. People don’t get tired praising him. His film Jayeshbhai Jordaar, which was on female foeticide about how people should not kill girls. What a wonderful subject but then how were they promoting the film? Ranveer went shirtless and was dancing with 25 girls during the promotions. He was like just dancing with 25 sexy and glamourous girls. Nobody knew that the film was about female foeticide. It’s not a fashion show or some comedy film. Why would people go and see that?”
Though based on a fantastic subject, Jayeshbhai Jordaar did not do well at the box office as it collected Rs 15.59 crores at the domestic box office.
Vivek Agnihotri’s last movie The Kasmir Files is regarded as one of the biggest hits post-pandemic period to be released in India. The movie narrates the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir Valley in the 1990s. The movie featured Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi, Mithun Chakraborty, and Darshan Kumaar in pivotal roles.
Besides, earlier this year, the director announced his next project titled, The Delhi Files. Sharing his photo, he tweeted, “I thank all the people who owned #TheKashmirFiles. For last 4 yrs we worked very hard with utmost honesty and sincerity. I may have spammed your TL (timeline) but it’s important to make people aware of the genocide and injustice done to Kashmiri Hindus. It’s time for me to work on a new film.” In a follow up tweet, he wrote, “#TheDelhiFiles.”
