The bindass bhidu actor and good human being to the core, Jackie Shroff is living up his dream these days! Jackie time and again revealed that he always wanted to play a baddie or wicked character on-screen and now he is seen doing the same. He played different grey characters in different movies like AURANGZEB, HAPPY NEW YEAR amongst others.
And now Jackie Shroff will be seen playing a ‘Punjabi Crooked Businessman’ with the shades of comedy for the first time ever on silver screen. With Japinder Kaur’s DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND, Jackie is set to surprise his fans with a fun-lighthearted baddie character.
“I always loved playing villainous roles and I have also done in the past in the films like PARINDA, MISSION KASHMIR SWAMI DADA, 100 DAYS, etc…But the kind of grey characters I am playing right now is fun. I had a whale of a time playing a baddie with comic shades for the first time in DILLIWAALI ZALIM GIRLFRIEND. It was hilarious and amazing experience. I love such colourful, fun-loving villains,” said the actor.
When asked about the character of Minocha, which Jackie is said to essay, Japinder said, “When I had decided to cast him in the role of a Punjabi Businessman in DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND, a lot of people told me it wasn’t a wise decision. However now that the film is complete the very same people are saying it is one of the best casting they have seen off late.”
Produced by Manjeet Kaur & Tarnpreet Singh, DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND also stars Divyendu Sharma, Ira Dubey, Prachi Mishra, Pradhuman Singh & others and is set to release on 20th March, 2015.
