BIRTHDAY CHEERS: Remo, Jackky and Vashu Bhagnani
The 25-year-old gets his second big break

TIMES NEWS NETWORK (BOMBAY TIMES; December 26, 2009)

Yesterday was Jackky Bhagnani’s 25th birthday. And, to mark the momentous occasion, his filmmaker father Vashu Bhagnani doubled up as Santa Claus and gave him his second film. Tentatively called Production No 21, the film to be directed choreographer Remo D’Souza has elements of comedy, drama, action, youth and exuberance. And Jackky is in an upbeat mood. Candidly he admits that his debut flick Kal Kissne Dekha was a dud. “However, I’m happy that my work in the film was appreciated,’’ says the youngster.

This time over, his father waited for the right moment to make an announcement. “Dad just felt it would be appropriate to announce my second film on my birthday,’’ says Jackky. He explains that Remo and he had actually zeroed down on this project even as KKD was being made. Jackky truly believes that one must let leave past mistakes behind and move on. “Today I know more about acting that I did when I made by debut,’’ he says. “I’m sure my second film will be a more fulfilling experience in that sense.’’

Remo, who is Jackky’s friend, steps in to add, “I had this subject worked out and when Vashuji heard it, he immediately volunteered to make this film under his banner.’’ Remo feels he is fortunate that a producer of Vashu’s stature agreed to fund his film. “Now my film will be mounted on the scale that I originally visualised it as,’’ he says.

He has also directed a film in Bengali and he is happy that his Bollywood debut has Jackky in it. He feels the boy has the ‘fire’ in him and given the right platform he will deliver. Both the actor and the director are now on a hunt for a female lead, and the appropriate title for this film that will be shot in quick, continuous schedules starting January. This could well be Jackky’s coming of age moment.
