'I want to set a personal trademark'

Good looks, great physique, extrovert stance and excellent dancing skills define Jackky Bhagnani, who is ready with his third film Ajab Gazabb Love.

Songs of the movie, especially Boom Boom is already topping the music charts, giving some relief to the actor , who is seriously striving hard to make a mark with the audiences and critics. In a têtê-a-têtê  with Metrolife, Jackky Bhagnani shares his experience of Ajab Gazaab Love and the struggles he had to face despite being Vashu Bhagnani’s son.

“Ajab Gazabb Love is a different film compared to a stereo-typed romantic comedy flick. The movie is the other way round. Generally, in movies boyfriend pretends to be rich in order to impress his girlfriend. However in AGL, I have acted as a poor guy despite being a millionaire so as to get the girl,” shares Jackky.

The two-film old, enthusiastic youngster is pinning loads of hope on his home production, which is already creating a buzz amongst music lovers. “It is quite a relief when audience loves the songs of the movie and makes them chartbusters. Boom Boom has become a rage and the music directors Sajid-Wajid composed a groovy song - giving me a chance to show my moves.”

Though Jackky has impressed the audience, the actor wants to set a trademark, “I want to set my personal trademark. I simply want to do those movies which people want to see. My acting in Faltu was appreciated and it is for this reason I wanted to go for another comedy. And the script I was searching for lay with my father.”

Ironically, Jackky has uptil now worked in his home production. His first movie Kal Kisne Dekha brought him the IIFA Star Debut Award. Thereafter, it was Faltu in 2011 directed by Remo D’ Souza, which sank without a trace. The journey till date has not been simple for the upcoming actor who has shed 60 kilos.

“I had to struggle a lot despite being a producer’s son. I was a fat boy and suffered from asthma. I had to extremely work hard on my body before I could present myself as an actor in front of everyone. Thereafter, my first film did not do well at the box-office. It is disheartening when people in your industry do not give you your due. But this pushes me to bring out the best,” says Jackky.


On working with Sanjay Gadhvi of Dhoom fame, in AGL, Jackky says, “It was an amazing experience to work with him. There were so many times on the sets when we used to giggle uncontrollably while speaking our lines and Sanjay sir, like a strict teacher used to tell us that  he would pack up for the day if we seriously not work on the dialogues. He made us work really hard on our characters to create an amazingly sweet
drama.”
