Shalini Pandey is set to have a huge launch in Bollywood with her big ticket theatrical debut in Jayeshbhai Jordaar opposite Ranveer Singh. On the fourth anniversary of Arjun Reddy, a film that catapulted her to instant stardom in the South, Shalini credits the film and her director Sandeep Reddy Vanga for making her a performer to watch out for!
Shalini says, “I owe everything to Arjun Reddy because it put me on the map as a performer. I had done my level best to put up a performance that I was immensely proud of and I’m glad that audiences appreciated my hard work. I owe everything to my director Sandeep Vanga Reddy for his belief in me as an actor. I’m fortunate that I was a part of his vision to create an unparalleled love story that has etched its place in the hearts and minds of film lovers across India.”
The actress says that Arjun Reddy’s success fuelled her passion to be recognised as a versatile artiste. She says, “The success of the film gave me a lot of confidence to pursue my personal goal to be an artist who wants to make a name as a performer, who loves to be versatile. Jayeshbhai Jordaar will be testimony to this statement. Unfortunately, I can’t talk too much about my role right now so you will have to wait and watch.”
Jayeshbhai Jordaar stars Ranveer Singh and is backed by YRF. YRF has saved all its films for theatrical releases and the film is completed and is just waiting for normal times to return at the movies.
