Jimmy Sheirgill doesn't regret playing supporting characters
Even though Jimmy Sheirgill's acting prowess has always earned attention and applause from viewers, he has rarely had a chance to headline offerings. Yet, he says he doesn't regret slipping into the part of supporting characters.
Two of Jimmy Sheirgill's offerings — Family Of Thakurganj and Jhootha Kahin Ka — are set to lock horns at the box office this year. He works with Saurabh Shukla and Rishi Kapoor respectively, in the films.
Even though his acting prowess has always earned attention and applause from viewers, Sheirgill has rarely had a chance to headline offerings. Yet, he says he doesn't regret slipping into the part of supporting characters.
"People remember me for the characters I play, so [I have] no regrets for not playing a lead. I have worked with Gulzar saab, Rajkumar Hirani, Neeraj Pandey, Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap. Perhaps that is why I have no regrets. When I sit down and look at my body of work and the people I have collaborated with, I feel fortunate to have had those opportunities," he says.
Family Of Thakurganj, set in Uttar Pradesh, also features Mahie Gill, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Yashpal Sharma and Pavan Malhotra. "The film has a political backdrop and [narrates the story of] how people live without following rules. It is a rooted story. The dialogues are entertaining." Jhootha Kahin Ka is a romcom featuring Sunny Singh, Omkar Kapoor, Lillete Dubey, and Rishi Kapoor.
