Jimmy ok with Saif taking centre stage in 'Bullett Raja'
Actor Jimmy Shergill has no qualms about 'Bullett Raja' being promoted as Saif Ali Khan's film. Jimmy will be sharing screen space with Saif in Tigmanshu Dhulia's upcoming film ' Bullett Raja'
"It is Saif's film... there is no big deal about it. He is a superstar, it is a fact, one has to face it and move on. I don't think and worry about these things. I just try and do best work," Jimmy told PTI here.
The long shooting schedules gave Saif and Jimmy quite a lot of time on the sets as well as off it. The actors bonded with each other over their passion for gym and love for Lucknowi food.
"After the pack up we used to head to gym. We had lot of fun working together. He is a good actor," Jimmy said. Both have earlier worked together in films like 'Eklavya' and 'Hum Tum'.
According to Jimmy, due to their hectic shooting schedules earlier, the two never really had a chance to be together for a long time and connect as co-actors. Jimmy and Saif are playing friends in the film, which is scheduled to release on November 29.
The film is premised on fictional mafia based in Uttar Pradesh. The action-packed entertainer also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Vidyut Jamwal, Gulshan Grover, Raj Babbar and Chunky Pandey.
Jimmy has teamed up with Tigmanshu after the success of 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster' and its sequel. "Tishu ( Tigmanshu) felt I was the perfect choice for this role.
I know the fact that he will cast me in his films if he would feel I can only play that part. This film ('Bullett Raja') is a complete masala entertainer in comparison to the films I did with him," Jimmy said.
"We (him and Tigmanshu) are friends and we understand each other better. He is an intelligent guy who is well read and well versed with day to day happenings. I would be ready to do even one scene in his film," he said.
