He made a successful foray into production, but now actor-producer Jimmy Sheirgill wants to do one thing at a time and hence has decided to stick to acting for the time being.

Jimmy had turned producer in 2011 with Punjabi film 'Dharti' and the Rs.4.2-crore movie earned Rs.7.5 crore at the box office.
"I just want to focus on acting right now. I have done production and it's a full time job. For the time being, I have taken break from production as I want to give all my time to acting," said the actor who is busy shooting for 'Gun Pe Done'.
He has always wowed all and sundry with his performance and the latest being 'Fugly'.
"I am extremely happy with the kind of response I got for my performance in 'Fugly'. It was a huge challenge for me to do an out an out negative character. It was a difficult role. So I am enjoying this phase as an actor," he added.
In 'Gun Pe Done' he plays a huge fan of late actor Feroz and said that his character is a struggling actor who feels he is an expert at mimicking actor Feroz Khan.
"But the fact is that he is a bad actor," he said and added, "We are trying to add humour with realism. I hope it will be an interesting film. It's a new experience for me. Not that I have not done comedy, but this is a nice break for me."
Directed by Abhik Bhanu, 'Gun Pe Done' also features Sanjay Mishra and Vijay Raaz among others.
