Why Gulzar gave orange candies to Jimmy Shergill?
The upcoming episode of The Kapil Sharma Show will see Jimmy Shergill making an appearance with Mahie Gill, Saurabh Shukla and Pavan Malhotra. The actors will be seen in the show to promote their upcoming movie, Family of Thakurganj.
While having interactions around their filmi journey and experiences in the industry, Jimmy revealed a cute memory he cherishes from his time of interacting with Gulzar who acknowledged his performance in the classic 1996 movie Maachis.
In conversation with Kapil, Jimmy shared that while working on Maachis, the director of the movie, Gulzar, gave him two orange candies to acknowledge his exceptional acting skills in a shot. The actor said, “Gulzar sahab gave me two toffees for my performance in a shot. I was new to the industry and very young and someone as legendary as Gulzar sahab giving me something as little as an orange candy was a big deal for me.” The actor was awed by this. Jimmy added, “The toffee was so special for me as it taught me how can I eat it .”
