Confirms Jimmy, "Yes, we are ready to roll DHARTI. While the story and setting would mainly belong to Punjab, the Hindi version would be an added bonus. The story of my film will be definitely rooted because it is all about catching the pulse of the target audience."

A dramatic thriller, DHARTI is yet another instance of Jimmy working with a relatively new director. While hunt is on for the leading lady, DHARTI would be directed by Navaniat Singh who has given Jimmy two of his biggest Punjabi blockbusters - MEL KARADE RABBA and before that TERA MERA KI RISHTA. Incidentally, these were the first two films as a director with Navaniat.
"Yes, in my career so far I have worked with a lot of first time directors," admits Jimmy, "I don't shy away from doing that since there are times when some newcomers really get very interesting ideas. In any case, Navaniat is no more a newcomer. He has given two blockbusters already. He understands the medium really well. I am sure we would be able to score a hat trick with DHARTI."
