“I am busy working today and I am more happy about that. It was a conscious decision to not go back to chocolate boy roles. I don’t want to get stuck to any image,” said Jimmy. “I am glad I did that (not stuck to one kind of role) as I got the opportunity to do something different like Haasil, Munna Bhai MBBS, A Wednesday and others.
These roles got me lot of appreciation,” he said. The Special 26 star says if he gets to do “meaty role” in a multi-starrer project, length of the character does not bother him much. Jimmy will be next seen in playing a politician in Shorgul and is quite excited about the film. “It is a fictitious character. The film is inspired from lot of incidents that has happened in our society,” said Jimmy.The upcoming political thriller drama is set to release on June 24.
