Amitabh BachchanJimmy Shergill to try luck in Punjabi movies

With Bhojpuri and Punjabi films raking in big moolah, Bollywood bigwigs -- from superstar Amitabh Bachchan to one-film wonder Bhagyashree -- are testing waters in regional cinema.

The latest to try his luck is actor Jimmy Shergill for whom "the call of the soil is too strong to ignore".




Shergill says he does not want to confine his acting to only Hindi films and is open to vernacular cinema. Not just this, he has pledged to do one Punjabi film every year.

"I have decided I would do act in one Punjabi film every year. I'm from a Punjabi family. I have studied in Punjab. I feel it's my duty to do so," says the actor whose Punjabi flick 'Mannat' will be released this year.

Shergill, who made his debut in Punjabi cinema last year with 'Yaraan Naal Baharaan' is game for a Bhojpuri film too. "If I get a good offer for a Bhojpuri film, then I'll lap it up. I was born in Gorakhpur and I am sure I'll pull off a film like that."

Talking about his forthcoming Hindi film - Tom Dick And Harry , Shergill who was in New Delhi recently says after a string of serious, intense roles he was "dying to do a comedy" that would allow him to let his hair down.

"I really wanted to do a comedy for a long time. In this film, I play a character who cannot speak. I liked it because I had no lines to rehearse," he says with a mischievous smile.
