After having tasted fame and giving a couple of hits in Bollywood, Jimmy Shergill is giving Punjabi cinema a chance again. The talented actor made his debut in Punjabi cinema with 'Yaraan Naal Baharaan' staring Raj Babbar's daughter, Juhi Babbar in 2005. The movie did quite well at the box office providing the start to Jimmy's eminence. After a whole year, Jimmy starred in another Punjabi venture, Mannat starring 'Kareena Kareena' fame, Kulraj Randhawa.
After a long 2 year break, Jimmy & Kulraj made a comeback with Punjabi venture, Tera Mera Ki Rishta which released a couple of months ago. With the intense chemistry between Jimmy and Kulraj along with the unique story line, the movie proved to be a super hit.
Manmohan Singh, a cinematographer turned director, released his latest movie on the Punjabi silver screen, Munde UK De which stars Jimmy Shergill himself. The movie is making fabulous collections at the box office collecting roughly Rs. 10 million in its opening week. Despite the recession, stats show that Munde UK De has in fact collected more revenues than some Bollywood films. Furthermore, the movie has collected great reviews accrediting the excellent storyline and praiseworthy star cast.
The movie has without a doubt made it big but who can forget music? Munde UK De has 8 tracks in which the song, 'Do Ghut Peelay' sung by the sensational Sunidhi Chauhan, made it to the Top 20 Chartbusters on BBC Music.
Looks like Jimmy going Punjabi is striking gold at the Box Office. So should Jimmy stick to Punjabi cinema?
