Jackie Shroff to play Yamaraj in his third Punjabi film

The flamboyant Jackie Shroff is playing Yamaraj in his next Punjabi film, Jagga Jiunda E that will show Yamlok in the modern, digital era . In sync with the stylish real life persona of the 61-year-old actor, Jackie will add a dash of his signature statement to Yamaraj, and will be seen wearing jazzy outfits and show his fondness for the virtual world.

However, considering the sensitivity of the character and religious sentiments, the producers have been extra careful in profiling this character. With the recent controversy involving Punjabi singer Miss Pooja and Harish Verma’s song Jeeeju inviting legal trouble over depicting Yamaraj as a drunkard, the filmmakers are not taking any chances.
