After acting in the film "Kehtaa Hai Dill Baar Baar", Jimmy Shergill seems to have found a great liking for the Indian American community.
"During the filming of that movie, I made so many new friends that now I always look for opportunities to go to the US and hang out with my pals. I particularly have a great liking for New York and New Jersey," Jimmy told IANS.
Come May 1, and Indians in the US will get to see him give a live performance at the Bollywood Awards in Atlantic City.
Jimmy is also elated at having bagged a role in "Agni Pankh", based on Indian Air Force pilots. He plays the role of Siddharth Singh alias Sidey.
Jimmy has had a chequered career in Bollywood since his debut in Gulzar's "Maachis". "Mohabbatein", "Dil Hai Tumhara", "Mere Yaar Ki Shaad Hai" and "Dil Vil Pyar Vyar" were just saving graces.
His last film, "Kehtaa Hai Dil Baar Baar" with Kim Sharma, turned out to be a damp squib at the box office. "Haasil" was average fare even though trade pundits consider him spontaneous and natural. Now he is banking heavily on "Agni Pankh".
His film "Charas" is now under production.
