Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff, who has acted in several regional language films in the past, will now be seen in a Konkani film titled Soul Curry. Produced by Michael Mascarenhas, it is Jackie’s debut Konkani film.
Apart from Hindi, Jackie has so far acted in films in Punjabi, Bengali, Kannada, Oriya, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu.
“I am doing a Goan (Konkani) film Soul Curry. It also has Seema Biswas. I am playing a musician in the film and how due to influx of technology in the field of music, things have changed and I lose out work,” Jackie said.
In the film, Jackie plays the role of Philip, an arrogant saxophone player. “I have acted in films of different languages and it is always challenging and great fun to learn something new. I had someone on the sets to help me get the accent right (referring to the Goan film),” he added.
He said the film should release in next two-three months. Besides this, he will also be seen in a Punjabi film Sardar Saab and a Tamil film Mayavan. “I play a Sardar role of a leader of truck driver union in the Punjabi film and in the Tamil film I have a negative role,” Jackie said.
