Talented actor Jimmy Shergill, who was most recently seen in Aanand L Rai’s comic-caper Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (2018), has been signed on to headline Applause Entertainment’s digital series, which will be produced by Sphere Origins, the popular production house spearheaded by Sunjoy Waddhwa and Komal Waddhwa.
Though the makers are presently tight-lipped about the plot of the series, what we know so far is that it will be set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh. Director E Niwas has been entrusted with the responsibility of helming the show.
“The series which is slated to go on floor in January next year has finalized Jimmy to play a pivotal role,” a source reveals.
The yet-to-be-titled series will mark the digital debut of Jimmy Shergill. The actor joins the likes of Sanjay Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and many more actors who recently debuted on various digital platforms.
More details on the project are awaited.
