Actor Jimmy Sheirgill, who is currently in the news for his film Collar Bomb, once played supporting characters despite having the potential to play the lead. The actor, while talking to RJ Siddharth Kannan, revealed that he couldn’t sit at home for two years and ‘wait for a lead role.’

The actor said, “Maine yeh nahi socha ki main sirf hero hi karunga aur uske baad phir do saal ghar pe baitha reh gaya. Woh sab luxury mere paas nahi thi isliye mujhe woh saare roles choose karne pade jo maine kiye finally (I did not think that I would only play the hero and sit at home for two years waiting for the right role. I did not have that luxury, so I chose the roles I ended up doing).”

Starting his career from Maachis in 1996, Jimmy got his major break with Shah Rukh Khan’s Mohabbatein, which released in 2000. The actor later became famous as the ‘bechaara lover’ since Kangana Ranaut’s Tanu Weds Manu released in 2011.

The actor has been a part of various projects where he played the supporting actor. Unfortunately, they did not work in his favour, but Jimmy has no regrets about that either. In fact, he’s proud and glad to have done all of his roles to date, since they helped him gain more roles and become the actor he is today.

Collar Bomb, also starring Asha Negi, featured Jimmy in the role of a police officer. The film was released directly on Disney+Hotstar.
