Bollywood star Ranveer Singh dropped the first song of his much-anticipated film 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar', titled 'Firecracker', on Monday.

The actor launched the first song of the film at a college in Mumbai amid the students and his fans.

The song, which is already a quirky number in itself, has got even quirkier dance steps, courtesy Ranveer's infectious energy.

According to the makers, the star performed on 'Firecracker' impromptu, without being choreographed.

A thrilled Ranveer says 'Firecracker' is the most memorable song in his filmography. He explains, “There are some songs that instantly pop out to you when you hear them at the audio level, and Firecracker is definitely one of those. Maneesh, when he made me hear it, he built my expectations - Oh my God, Vishal-Shekhar have smashed it, you've got to hear the song! So, I was already going in with expectations. Inspite of that, it exceeded all my high expectations. I was like Wow! This is a smash hit.”

Ranveer reveals he had the same reaction when he heard his chartbuster 'Nashe Si Chadh Gayi' from 'Befikre'.

He says, “I remember having the same reaction when Adi (Aditya Chopra) made me hear Nashe Si Chadh Gayi, when Ali made me hear Tune Maari Entriyaan. It's in the first 20 to 30 seconds that you are just hooked on to the song. That's what happened with Firecracker for me. It was an instant hit with me.”

He adds, “And it's proving to be a hit with people which all of us are very grateful for. The accurate interpretation of the lyrics is a father is singing this about his daughter and I think that it's a lovely expression. I am really happy about the song and happy that it's being appreciated.”


The trailer of 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar' has received immense love from the audience. "I am absolutely elated because this is a film with a very specific theme. It has a very relevant and pertinent social message embedded in it but for the most part it is an entertainer and is designed as an entertainer. It is humorous and I am glad that people who are watching the trailer are recognising the fact that it's an entertainer, the fact that it's a colourful, humorous, vibrant clean family entertainer that's for the whole family," Ranveer had earlier said.

A hilarious satire on society - 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar', produced by Maneesh Sharma, also stars 'Arjun Reddy' fame Shalini Pandey, who debuts on Bollywood’s big screen opposite Ranveer. The film has been directed by debutant Divyang Thakkar and is releasing worldwide on May 13, 2022.
