‘PHAMOUS’ ACTOR AND NOT SO FAMOUS ROLES

Actor Jimmy Shergill says that he cannot be into the character all the time. He is always out of the role, while on the break. Though many people refer to him as a method actor, but he does not feel that way. The actor says that he gets into the character and out of it really quickly. He says, "I wouldn't call myself a method actor. Method acting is a deeper concept. You have to constantly be that character. You move like him, talk and behave like him till the time you're shooting the film.  I can't be living and breathing my characters all the time. That's not been my learning. When there's a break, you're out of the costume... You're out of the character. But when the shoot's on, you do your job with sincerity and honesty," During the start of his career in the film industry, he did movies like Maachis, Mohabbattein, Mere Yaar Ki Shadi Hai and Dil Hai Tumhara. He took a wise decision when he started doing more realistic and less glamorous roles like those of Munna Bhai MBBS, A Wednesday, Haasil, Tanu Weds Manu and many more. He was not very sure whether the decision he was taking was good for him or not, but looking back at that decision he took 15 years ago, he feels content and happy about it. The year from the beginning has been in favour of Shergill as his role in his latest flick, Mukkabaaz, was appreciated by the viewers. He says that the audience admired his character because it was a transparent one, something he had not done before. "It ('Mukkabaaz') perhaps provided a pleasant shock. I had done negative roles in the past but not the 'in-your-face' ones. It was great," he says.

His character of Radhe Shyam gets to taste emotions like love, greed, and leadership. The director of the movie, Karan Lalit Butani has input some dialogues which would not be forgotten by the audience soon. He also says, "There used to be those Westerns Eastwood-Tarantino styles of filmmaking. I think somewhere he was inspired by those films. I think that's the big USP”. The star cast of the movie also includes actors like Kay Kay Menon, Pankaj Tripathy, Jackie Shroff, Mahie Gill and Shriya Saran. The movie hit the theatres on 1st June.
