Career

Jimmy Sheirgill made his debut with the 1996 film Maachis. The film was critically acclaimed and his performance drew praises from all. Despite this, he failed to get any decent projects in the next 4 years. In 2000, he made his comeback with the multi-starrer Mohabbatein, which was a huge hit. He then did a couple of more films, of which Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and Dil Hai Tumhaara were well-received.

The year 2003 was a big turn for Jimmy. He first appeared in Haasil, a film that has since achieved cult status, and showcased full prowess of his acting skills. He also had a small but much-loved role in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. However, despite these successes, Jimmy's career failed to take off. Most of his lead projects flopped in the subsequent years. The only successes he tasted, like Lage Raho Munna Bhai, A Wednesday!, and My Name Is Khan, were as a supporting actor.

Since 2011, Jimmy decided to shed his “chocolate boy” image and take more powerful roles. These included Tanu Weds Manu, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Special 26, Bullett Raja, Fugly and Tanu Weds Manu: Returns. In 2016, he played the lead role in Happy Bhag Jayegi and also powerful supporting roles in Traffic and Madaari. 2018 was the most significant year in his career, as he appeared in films like Mukkabaaz, Veerey Ki Wedding, Phamous, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi.

Jimmy has also been active in Punjabi cinema since 2005. Some of his most successful Punjabi films include Dharti, Mel Karade Rabba, and Aa Gaye Munde UK De. He has also produced some Punjabi films.

Favorites

Jimmy is a typical Punjabi as far as food is considered, and loves eating makki ki roti with sarson ka saag. Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone are some of his favorite actors. His favorite film is American History X.

Awards

For Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Jimmy won the Best Actor Award at 11th Norway Bollywood Film Festival. He won the PTC Best Actor Award for Mel Karade Rabba and PTC Best Film (critics) award for Dharti (which he produced and acted in).

Trivia

Jimmy stopped wearing a turban when he was 18, a decision that greatly disappointed his family. He ventured into acting after the insistence of his cousin. Jimmy originally approached Gulzar to assist him in directing Maachis. Instead, Gulzar offered him a role in the film.
