While shooting for the upcoming political drama Shorgul, Jimmy Shergill was rushed to a government hospital since he got dehydrated shooting in 43 celsius over a span of 4 weeks continuously. Jimmy had to be administered with glucose shots and was advised complete bed rest for a week but being a thorough professional he resumed shooting in a span of 2 days.


Sources close to the production house state, “The entire unit had to shoot in the scorching heat of April in the most remote parts of Lucknow where we had limited access to luxury since the film is set in the heartland of UP and we wanted to capture scenes at the grassroot levels.”


A 24 FPS Films Production, the political drama film is based on intolerance and aspires to make audiences contemplate on where humanity stands amidst the noise of religious, social, political and economic prejudice. It is inspired by sensitive real-time incidents that shook the foundation of democracy, set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh.  The film will touch upon grave subjects that have transpired in the recent past such as Muzzafarnagar, Godhra, Babri Masjid riots apart from making references to bureaucratic misdoings of some high profile dignitaries.  Some of the lead actors in the film will bear resemblance to real life politicians such as Akhilesh Yadav, Sangeet Soam, Azam Khan in their look, mannerisms and even names. Directed by Jitendra Tiwari & P. Singh and produced by Swatantra Vijay Singh & Vyas Verma, the film stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Ashutosh Rana, Sanjay Suri, Narendra Jha, Hiten Tejwani, Eijaz Khan, Suha Gezen, Anirudh Dave, Deepraj Rana
