Jayeshbhai Jordaar is a comedy drama, which is being directed by Divyang Thakkar. Speaking of the project, in an interview with news agency IANS last year, Ranveer said, "Jayeshbhai Jordaar is a film with a big heart. In its concept as well as in its appeal, it encompasses the broadest spectrum of the cinema-loving audience - it's a film for everyone. It is, in fact, a miracle script that YRF found for me out of nowhere." Jayeshbhai Jordaar will clash with Vicky Kaushal's Sardar Udham Singh at the box office.
Toofaan is being directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The sports drama will be Farhan and Rakeysh's second project together. The duo have previously worked together in the 2013 film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which was based on the life of legendary field sprinter Milkha Singh. The film will be co-produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and it also features Paresh Rawal in a pivotal role.
