Actor Jimi Mistry started his career with the 1999 blockbuster East is East. And now after a decade-long successful career in Hollywood, the 38-year-old actor returns to screen as Tariq, the rebellious Khan sibling in West is West. “East is East was a big part of my life and the springboard for my career. I will always be there for it,” he says.

The actor shares the screen with veteran actor Om Puri after a long time. “Since our first film together, we made a bond that we will always be brothers. But obviously there are some people who I haven’t kept in touch with, such as Om. But I haven’t seen him for 7-8 years. It was quite emotional seeing him after so long,” he says.

On his journey so far, Mistry says, “I’ve had a good career and it’s all due to East is East... I feel blessed about the career I’ve had.”
