New Delhi, June 27 -- While some of his films such as Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003) have worked wonders at the box office, actor Jimmy Sheirgill has also had his share of bad luck with projects such as Bullet Raja (2013) and Dangerous Ishhq (2012).
However, the 44-year-old says that it is very important to not let your failures affect you. "I was very disappointed when Bullet Raja did not do well. I remember when I was shooting for the film, I had grown my hair and I was not doing anything else for a year. Once it was over, I was dubbing and was busy with promotions. I was so committed to it, that made me feel worse when it didn't work out," he says, adding, "But it is also very important to move on, and work helps you to do that."
Meanwhile, the public scrutiny in the media is something that has always bothered Jimmy. "You need to be perfect all the time. There is an image that you have and that needs to always be maintained. I feel that bigger the star, the tougher it gets. You end up being conscious all the time," he says.
Jimmy, who will also be seen in a Punjabi romantic thriller soon, says that it was the unique genre of the film that got him interested.
"Mixing of two genres is very new in the Punjabi film industry. I am through with romantic comedies and I refused to take another one. I wanted to try something different and this was just the perfect opportunity," he says.
