As an actor, Jackky Bhagnani was last seen in ‘Mitron’, which was an official remake of the Telugu film ‘Pelli Choopulu’, he saw some good reviews coming his way for his performance and the film definitely helped propel his acting career forward. Since last year, though, his focus has been on putting together a slate, consisting of multiple films, for his home banner Pooja Entertainment.
While ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’, starring Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Alaya F, is slated for a January 31, 2020 release, ‘Coolie No. 1’ is scheduled to hit the theatres on May 1st, 2020. The two films, which he has co-produced with sister Deepshika Deshmukh, are completely different from each other as far as the genre and the subject matter is concerned. The company is expected to make a few more important announcements shortly. Among others, there will be films which would be directed by Rahi Anil Barve (‘Tummbad’) and Vijay Lalwani (‘Karthik Calling Karthik’), directors which the company has signed a while back. Moreover, he will also be backing Akshay Kumar’s next in pipeline, the much-awaited Bell Bottom!
Jackky made his foray into production with ‘Sarbjit’ (2016) and since then, has been at the forefront of a couple of other films produced by Pooja Entertainment. With the kind of line-up the company has and the announcements about to happen shortly, 2020 seems to be a very important and prolific year for Jaccky as a producer.
