Jashn Agnihotri – First Actress To Do Double Role in Punjabi Film

Punjabi film fans can’t seem to be having enough of Jashn Agnihotri. Guess that’s why she has been signed up for not one but two roles in the same film, making her the first Punjabi actress to do a double role in a long time.

The bubbly actress started out as a model and did over a 100 print ad and TV commercials including the likes of Indian Oil Servo, Sahara, Inalsa and many others. Along with ad shoots Jashn also featured in a few hit music videos including the likes of Damdaar Boy by T Series and also hosted the famous reality show No. 1 Dramebaaz while pursuing her passion for cinema.

“It was during my modeling days that Mr. Madhur Bhandarkar spotted me and asked to audition for a song in his film Indu Sarkar,” recalls Jashn how she bagged the song Yeh Pal in Indu Sarkar. Jashn later went onto do a guest appearance in the film Genius as DJ Jashn.

Her upcoming Punjabi film titled Chan Tara has her in a double role and she can’t stop gushing over her experience while shooting for the film, “It’s a full on commercial film with comedy, romance and drama,” says Jashn while further adding, “I have worked really hard to mark the delicate difference between the 2 characters wherein one girl is upmarket, sophisticated and ambitious whereas other girl has a humble background and has a rawness & is desi punjaban personified. I ardently followed Hema Maliniji in Seeta Aur Geeta and Late Srideviji in Chalbaaz and took inspiration from these veterans actresses to pull off this challenging double role. Directed by Vinit Atwal, produced by Satnam Tatla, Chan Tara has an ensemble star cast from Punjabi and Bollywood industry and I am confident this film will be liked by audience as it’s a thorough entertainer.”

Jashn is totally on cloud nine with the projects coming her way and doesn’t seem to be in any mood to rest, “After Chan Tara I have two releases lined up in the coming year, one Hindi and one Punjabi film.” Ask her if she doesn’t want to stick to Bollywood alone and she says, “I am language agnostic, I’m an actress and I will continue seeking good work that I get in whichever industry possible.”

SINGHAM goes Punjabi

For Ajay Devgn in a presenter’s role, this is going back to his roots in many ways. A Punjabi himself and having played the Singham character, this is home turf.

Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series was the first Hindi film studio who made lavish budget Punjabi films back in the day. The studio back in 2002 produced Jee Aayan Nu which was the first high budgeted movie made in Punjabi that became a mega hit was also a movie that welcomed new age Punjabi cinema. They are set to re-enter the industry with Singham’s official remake. T-Series has already given several Hindi film hits like Hindi Medium, Aashiqui 2, Tumhari Sulu, Raid, SKTKS along with umpteen Punjabi singles out of which a couple of them have reached Billboards like Lahore and Made in India by Guru Randhawa.

Head Honcho of T-Series, Bhushan Kumar, says, “Ajay Devgn’s Singham became a box office wonders in Hindi markets. Unlike what is believed, Punjabi films have an audience across the globe. We had previously made couple of films in Punjabi with budgets no one even imagined investing for regional cinema back then. When the decision of producing Punjabi films was done,  producing Singham remake was the right call. The audience is going to love it.”

This also marks the first in the Punjabi space for Panorama Studios, the studio behind Raid, Drishyam, Special Chabbis, and the Pyaar Ka Punchnama films.

Abhishek Pathak, Managing Director, Panorama Studios said “The Singham character played by Ajay Devgn is a household name across the country and Singham the film is one of the most successful franchises in Indian cinema. Punjabi films are big locally and have a large following overseas too. We felt a Punjabi remake with an interesting take on Singham would be the perfect choice for our entry into the Punjab film industry and with the combo of Parmish, Sonam and Director Navaniat Singh we are sure the audience are going to love this entertainer.”

Filming started 16th November.
