Don’t want to get slotted in one image: Jimmy Sheirgill

Mumbai, June 15 (IANS) Actor Jimmy Sheirgill has featured in a mixed bag of romantic dramas as well as intense dramas. He says he made a conscious decision to have a variety of roles so that he avoids being bracketed in an image.

Jimmy told IANS: “When I started off with ‘Mohabbatein’, after a few films I realised that somehow I was getting stuck with the chocolate boy image. So I felt I needed to start at now choosing some interesting roles with some intensity.”

“I don’t want to get slotted into any one image. That’s the reason I started doing films like ‘Haasil’, ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.’, ‘Yahaan’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. It was a conscious decision on my part. Today also, I am doing a lot of films, but the films I choose are with different stories,” he added.

The actor is busy promoting his film “Shorgul”.

Talking about the film, he said: “‘Shorgul’ is a love story set in the backdrop of politics. There is the big question whether politics and religion is above humanity. My character in the film is about a young politician and I have not done something like this before. It’s a character with grey shades.”

Co-directed by Jitendra Tiwari and P. Singh and co-produced by Swatantra Vijay Singh and Vyas Verma, the film stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Ashutosh Rana, Sanjay Suri, Narendra Jha, Hiten Tejwani, Eijaz Khan, Suha Gezen, Anirudh Dave and Deepraj Rana.
