Film buffs are in for a treat with Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi’s next film FUGLY, directed by Kabir Sadanand, starring Jimmy Sheirgill, Mohit Marwah, Kiara Advani, Arfi Lamba and Vijender Singh.
The youth entertainer will give the audiences an opportunity to witness versatile actor Jimmy SheIrgill transform from his more typical ‘romantic, guy next door’ roles to an outright bad boy villain. A talented actor and producer, Jimmy (Mohabbatein, A Wednesday, My Name Is Khan) will once again reunite with his Special 26 co-star Akshay Kumar for the latter’s production venture ‘Fugly’, which is billed as a riveting youth comedy drama film. Both Akshay and Jimmy share a great friendship, and enjoy collaborating on film projects.
Speaking about his role and what attracted him to the script, Jimmy says, “When I heard the narration, I could sense that the story was inspired from real life. It feels it’s an in your face kind negative role”
He added, “Kabir [Sadanand – the director] said to me that he had written the part especially for me, as he felt that if I played it, I would give a different shade of villainy. Also, it was great to reconnect with Akshay.”
After the immense success of their first venture ‘OMG! Oh My God’, Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi’s, Grazing Goat Pictures, is all set to have you on the edge of your seat with their next release, Fugly, a Youth Entertainer, set in by lanes of Delhi, releasing on 13th June 2014.
‘Fugly’, directed by Kabir Sadanand, is shot extensively in Delhi and the breathtaking locations of Leh. It is a story of four friends: Dev, Devi, Gaurav and Aditya and how this carefree bunch, at the threshold of their lives, get caught in a ‘Fugly’ incident, which sucks them slowly into the big bad world of corruption, politics and the real society in the capital. The entertainingly original Fugly is wacky, kitsch and puts the best of friends through the most bizarre events of their life – the game is FUGLY!
Fugly is also the launch pad for Mohit Marwah, Olympic medalist Boxer Vijender Singh, Kiara Advani and Arfi Lamba, the freshest faces to join the film fraternity. They will be making their debut in style along with the supremely talented Jimmy Sheirgill, who will be seen in one of his most powerful performances ever.
