After Tabbar and Guilty, Delhi-based actor Sahil Mehta will now be seen in a prominent role in the much-awaited Good Luck Jerry which also features Janhvi Kapoor. The film will drop on Disney+ Hotstar on July 29. Meanwhile, Sahil will also be seen in an important role in Anand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan – starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar – which is slated for a theatrical release on August 11.

In Good Luck Jerry, Sahil plays the role of a 20-year-old Sikh boy, who wants to learn the business of drugs and get into the shoddy crime world. Talking about the character, he said, “Jigar is a person who belongs to the world of drugs and crime. At the same time, he is a teenager with a lot of passion and raw energy. He is also a Sikh. As a result, I didn’t cut my hair. In fact, the monobrow you see on the screen is real. To get a natural tan, I used to put mustard oil all over my body and soak it in the sunlight. Whenever I prepare for a role, I try to be in the moment and put myself in that circumstances,” said the actor. 

Sahil also shared his experiences of working with Janhvi. “She is such a sweetheart, so sweet and warm. There was so much I learned from her. It used to motivate me to work even harder because she is my age, and I remember she moved between cities as she promoted her other films while we were filming for Good Luck Jerry,” he said.

Sahil added, “Mukesh Chhabra has given me immense support. He was the one who cast me in Good Luck Jerry and continues to approach me for the roles and for all the projects that I am part of. In addition, Aanand L Rai Sir cast me in Raksha Bandhan, after watching my audition tape and work in Good Luck Jerry, since he is producing both the films.” 

Sahil was also nominated for the Best Actor award for his role in the short film Gair at the Kashish Queer Film Festival, Mumbai. His new short film Birha is selected for the Hollywood Shorts Fest 2022.
