Actor Jimmy Sheirgill is returning to the big screens with a crime-thriller titled Aazam. The film, slated to release on May 19, will see Jimmy play the role of Javed, an underworld don’s associate.
Aazam revolves around the succession battle of a mafia don Nawab Khan, who controls the syndicate of five partners governing the city. Kader, Nawab's son, is his legitimate heir in the business, but he plans to eliminate all his father's associates on the advice of his colleague Javed. However, Kader's plan fails as other syndicate members have their own agenda for the gang war. In the middle of this conspiracy, DCP Joshi is trying to stop the gang war havoc.
The film’s teaser was released today, which showed Jimmy in an intense avatar. He is seen shooting a revolver and saying, “Humara business balance pe chalta hain, jiska balance gaya woh gaya (Our business works on balance, who loses his balance is gone).”

The makers also released a motion poster of Aazam unveiling Jimmy's look as Javed. In the poster, Jimmy is seen in Mumbai's iconic Gateway of India.
Talking about his character, Jimmy said: "I play the role of Javed, a close associate of Nawab Khan, who is one of the most powerful dons in the city's underworld. Javed is a complex character with shades of grey, and I had a great time exploring his motivations and psyche.
The film is written and directed by Shravan Tiwari. The director added: "Aazam is a passion project for me, and I'm excited to bring this gripping story to the audiences. The film is a mix of crime, thriller, and mystery genres, and we have worked hard to create an immersive world that will keep the viewers on the edge of their seats."
