New Delhi, Sep 5 : Singer and actor Gippy Grewal, known for movies like ‘Carry On Jatta’, ‘Jatt James Bond’, among others, feels happy that the Punjabi film industry has come a long way in the last 10 years.
Gippy, was recently seen in romantic-comedy drama ‘Yaar Mera Titliyaan Warga’, along with Tanu Grewal, directed by Vikas Vashisht. The flick revolves around a couple, who after six years of marriage are bored of each other. To spice things up, they individually create fake social media accounts but end up befriending each other.
In an interaction with UNI, Gippy talks about the movie, Punjabi film industry and Bollywood.
Grewal made his film debut in a supporting role in 2010 with ‘Mel Karade Rabba’. When asked how he sees the growth of the industry, he said, “In the last 10 years, we have come a long way. If we go by this speed, then we will reach greater heights. We are so happy that our cinema is going at this level. If we get two-three major hits in Punjabi, then things will majorly change for our industry.”
Talking about the movie ‘Yaar Mera Titliyaan Warga’, the 39-year-old actor said, “This is the movie based on today’s generation. Social media has advantages and disadvantages of its own. Today, family members are not giving time to each other but are busy on their phones. It’s an out and out comedy and a hilarious subject. My film is themed on reality. This is not a ‘filmy’ film, but an audience’s movie. The subject is absolutely fresh.”
Gippy said his character in the movie is full of innocence. “My character, no matter what he does outside, is true-hearted. It’s about those who are honest by heart, but somehow fell in greed and do such things. They are shown another world. That innocence I feel everyone must have.”
Asked about Bollywood, Gippy said, “I feel there is no decline for anything. It matters on the subject. Audience is not angry with anyone at all. If they make a good subject, the audience will see, otherwise not.”
The ‘Angreji Beat’ singer feels he has no competition in the industry. “Everybody is doing their jobs, I am doing mine. I feel I am my own competition,” he added.
On the work front, he will be next seen in ‘Warning 2’, ‘Carry On Jatta 3’ etc.
