Jackky Bhagnani wins the Hindustan Times Trailblazer Awards 2021, making it the youngest producer to make the list. Bhagnani is also the world’s first producer to start and finish a feature film during the pandemic as he runs the Bollywood race and works with superstars of different generations for his films.
Jackky thanked him for the award on his social media when he recognized his picture as “Thank you @htcity for honoring me with # httrailblazerawards2021. Absolutely grateful for that and I want to thank the entire team at #Bellbottom and especially @akshaykumar Sir, without which it would have been impossible to reach this milestone in completing the shoot in the pandemic! #grateful #thankful @pooja_ent @ kalra.sonal ”
When he received the award, he said, “I always wondered when I was going to get such an honor. I’m very excited, I want to thank the entire team at Bell Bottom, my dad, for being there in London and doing everything … The director Ranjit, all of the cast and crew, and most importantly, Akshay Sir. If it hadn’t been for him, I wouldn’t have had the strength to shoot this. Especially as a small part of the industry, we thought someone had to take this bold step. I must say that for the first time I felt that the whole fraternity came together and supported us and they were very happy. I used to always have the feeling that my father was my role model, now I have two – my father and Akshay Sir, ”says Jackky Bhagnani.
Jackky Bhagnangi is currently working with superstars Akshay Kumar for Bell Bottom and Tiger Shroff for his film franchise ‘Ganpath’. He had also worked with Varun Dhawan, which made him one of the few producers to work with the superstars of different generations.
Jackky counted his unprecedented efforts during the Pamdemie and was the first and youngest producer to film an entire shoot of his film Bell Bottom overseas in the UK. First in India and one of the first internationally.
