Amritsar, April 7 (ANI): Jasjit Shergill is today best known for his performance in 'Maachis', the film that highlighted the little known story about making of a terrorist, on big screen. Since then he has acted in over 20 Hindi and Punjabi films.

Born into a Jat Sikh family, Jasjit a.k.a Jimmy says when an artist knows that his film has an excellent story, he tries to give it his best.

"Being part of the film it is his responsibility to promote it along with the co-stars. The producer of the film also remains confident and he does the best for the promotion of the film," said Jimmy Shergill.

Shergil's upcoming film is 'Tera Mera Ki Rishta', a family entertainer. He hopes that everybody will watch the film. "Today, almost every Hindi film has a Punjabi song. People like it very much. This is a family, youth-oriented film and a love story," he shares.

"I request people not to buy pirated DVD's and VCD's. It's obvious now that this money goes in funding terrorism internationally. We are trying to take Punjabi and Hindi cinema to reach a new level. For that people should go and enjoy the films in theatres. If they watch it on pirated VCD's or DVD's, our efforts go waste, says Shergil.

He says romantic films have not been made in Punjabi cinema for a long time. Tera Mera Ki Rishta' is a complete love story. "I feel in everyone's life two things are most important - family and love. 'Tera Mera Ki Rishta' reflects this," he says.

"Punjabi artists working in Hindi cinema are also promoting Punjabi cinema at their level. And, in the last 4-5 years Punjabi cinema has grown because of the sincere efforts of the artists," said Jimmy Shergill, actor.

Speaking on the growth of Punjabi cinema, Shergil anticipates that the industry will keep growing and stories will also keep changing with time and according to the situation. People are now making youth-oriented films and this change was essential. By Savinder Singh (ANI)
