JIMMY SHEIRGILL

Jimmy Sheirgill has been around for 13 long years and has seen numerous ups and downs in his career. He has been a part of numerous successful films and has seen quite some adulation coming his way, especially post the super success of A WEDNESDAY. However, he was in for a shock, a pleasant one at that, when he was welcomed by thousands of cheering fans while on a promotional tour across the state of Punjab for the release of his Punjabi film TERA MERA KI RISHTA.

''I really don't have much words for the beautiful experience that I had during my interaction with youth in the promotion of TERA MERA KI RISHTA'', says Jimmy who is paired with Kulraj Randhawa (of 'Kareena Kareena' fame) in the film, ''You had to be there to believe it as we went across the state while passing through numerous cities, towns and villages.''

Apparently, so emotionally charged was Jimmy during the tour that he simply broke down at one of the events.

''I have learnt one simple but very important thing that an actor should always respect his audience. I have been around for so many years and have always kept this thought at the back of my mind. But now, I am sure that I will be making a conscious effort to respect the feelings of my audience'', says an emotionally choked Jimmy who is out now on the global promotion of the tour.

''With the kind of cheering that I saw around our troupe whenever we used to pass through the cities, I have come to realize what exactly is the meaning of hero worship. People of Punjab are so simple yet very passionate. They have this intrinsic 'pyaar' and 'izzat ki bhaavna' in them all the time. Now I know that I will never ever compromise in my choice of roles. No, never again would I do so in my life'', Jimmy resolves.

In the meanwhile global promotion is heating up in a big way for this EROS release with premier in Vancouver. Also, Jimmy would be globe trotting across Europe, US, UK and Australia to create buzz around the film.

''Yes, I am literally traveling across the globe for TERA MERA KI RISHTA. I will be making stops in Canada, USA, UK, Norway, New Zealand and Australia. I am told by the producers that it is the costliest Punjabi movie ever made. I have reasons to believe that because the makers have left no stones unturned to make it a rich film'', he says enthusiastically.

TERA MERA KI RISHTA also boasts of prominent Bollywood names like Raj Babbar, Anupam Kher and Archana Puran Singh in supporting roles. The film releases today all over.
