Jimmy Shergill Praises New Bollywood Movies
Known for his acting prowess, the actor has even turned producer for a few Punjabi films. When the actor was quizzed about what he thinks of regional cinema, he was quick to say that the films made in the South-Indian industry are high on content, in spite of being out-and-out masala entertainers. He thinks that even Punjabi and Marathi cinema are evolving, so even Bollywood should witness a change soon.
When quizzed about his journey in Bollywood so far, the Traffic actor stated that he is currently in a happy space. Content has undergone a huge change since the time he stepped into films with his debut movie, Maachis. Earlier, masala films were in demand but today, the audiences prefer watching a film that is high on content. In the current scenario, new concepts and newcomers are coming up which is good.
Jimmy was most loved in Aanand L Rai’s Tanu Weds Manu series, where he played the iconic character of Raja Awasthi. When asked about whether the third sequel is in the pipeline or not, the actor stated that Rai is not the director who makes a sequel just because it has become a brand. Even though Tanu Weds Manu Returns was a blockbuster, he will only go ahead with the third part if he has the correct plot in mind.
On the work front, Jimmy’s next release is Mudassar Aziz’s Happy Bhag Jayegi, also starring Diana Penty, Abhay Deol, and Ali Fazal in lead roles.
