Actor Jimmy Shergill, who is set to release his upcoming Hindi film Sahib Biwi aur Gangster this Friday, has produced a Punjabi movie titled Dharti and tasted the success. Now, the Machis star wants to try his hands on producing Bollywood films and he is not bothered to rope in big stars.

In an interview with the PTI, Jimmy Shergill gushed on his plans on producing Bollywood films. The actor said, "I have got seven-eight scripts in hand and we would zero down on one-two. There are comedy, thriller, light-hearted kind of scripts. I want to make entertaining films for the audience...not documentary types."

Jimmy Shergill's maiden production in Hindi will be made under the banner of Jimmy Shergill Productions. "Once we lock the script we would decide on the actors. Even if big actors are required I would approach them and also wait to get their dates, provided they fit the bill. I don't know how much time all this will take," the PTI quotes as saying.

However, the Punjabi actor started his career with the Hindi movie Machis in 1996 and later, he has acted in several Bollywood and Punjabi movies. He became producer with the Punjabi flick Dharti, which was released on April 22 this year. His maiden film, which was made with a budget of Rs 4.2 crore, has grossed Rs 7.5 crore at the Box Office and now he aspires to try his luck in B-town.
