"I am getting good supporting roles, and that's why I am doing it. These days who is doing solo hero films? Now we see two to three lead characters in all films... things have changed," Jimmy told IANS.

"If I can show my talent through supporting roles, then why not? I am being offered powerful roles. I don't see whether it's a lead or anything else. I am happy," said the actor, who has featured in films like

"Mohabbatein", "Yahaan", "Lage Raho Munnabhai" and "A Wednesday".

Jimmy will now be seen in Anand L. Rai's "Tanu Weds Manu Returns", sharing screen space with R. Madhavan and Kangna Ranaut.

Asked what prompted him to do "Tanu Weds Manu Returns", the sequel to the 2011 film "Tanu Weds Manu", he said: "I did this film because people still remember my role in 'Tanu Weds Manu'. This is a sequel in a true sense... the film is not made just for the heck of it. I am quite satisfied with my role in this film."

The film will feature Kangna in a double role.
