New Delhi: After doing a number of serious roles in films like `Sahib, Biwi Aur Gangster` and `Tanu Weds Manu`, actor Jimmy Shergil says he now wants to star in a comedy film.
"I feel as an actor, you should do different roles. So, after doing all these serious roles in my films, I really want to do a light-hearted film. It will be a challenge for me," Jimmy said.
The 42-year-old actor said he struggled hard to get rid of the romantic hero image after the success of `Mohabbatein`.
"I started my career with `Maachis` but `Mohabbatein` established me as an actor. I am grateful to the film but I never wanted the image of a romantic hero in Bollywood. It was a conscious decision to do serious roles to break that image," he said.
The actor has wrapped up shooting for multi-starrer gangster drama `Special Chabbis` and Tigmanshu Dhulia`s `Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster 2`. He is also working on Dhulia`s next project `Bullet Raja` with Saif Ali Khan.
Jimmy was recently seen in tennis star Leander Paes starrer `Rajdhani Express`, where he portrayed the character of an ATS officer.
"It was a very unconventional story and had dark humour. I enjoyed shooting the film because my director Ashok Kohli is a lawyer by profession. He used to discuss about loopholes in the system," he said.
