Bollywood actor Jimmy Shergill is disappointed with the way his films are promoted and to make things right the actor is planning to open his own production company.

"It is really disappointing specially after you have put up so much hard work for 30-40 days and then your film don't do well because it has not been promoted or released properly. So I want to open my own production house, I feel I will be a happier man then," says Jimmy, who had as many as seven releases last year but with most failing to set the cash register ringing.




However, Jimmy, who received critical acclaims for his role in Stranger and Dus Kahaniyaan , is unfazed and is ready with four of his films to be released this year, the newest being 'Wednesday'.

"My film, 'Wednesday' will be released in March-April. It has some great actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher and Rajpal Yadav. I am playing a KDS officer in the film. Next, I have 'Haste Haste', 'Bachelor Party', 'Mumbai Katin' and The Flag , which I just completed," says Jimmy, who was in the capital recently for endorsing a lifestyle clothing company as a brand ambassador.

Jimmy, who ever since his debut in Gulzar's 'Maachis' has done a variety of roles, says he is not scared of experimenting and does not care about image.

"In this last decade I have done a lot of experimentation with my looks and character. In my Punjabi film, 'Mannat' I have portrayed a role which spans between 25-46 years of age. So I am not scared of changing my image. It all depends on the character," he says.

Jimmy also feels that on-screen smoking should not be banned as it entirely depends on the character of the film.

"It depends on the requirement of the role. An actor smoking on screen is only portraying a character and if the role requires him to smoke there is nothing wrong in it," he says.
