 Jackie interacted with media at the mahurat of "Ventilator" here on Friday.

"My father belonged to Rajkot, Gujarat so now, I am doing my first Gujarati film in my career. I hope I will be able to do justice to my character in Gujarati version of ‘Ventilator’," Jackie told media.

"I used to communicate in Gujarati but since my father passed away, I don’t communicate in the language as much as my childhood phase. Now I am doing film in 11th language which is being spoken in India so, I will try my best to speak in correct manner in the film. I think I am not fluent in any of Indian language but I always try to do a film in all Indian languages." the actor added.

Asked about his preparations for the film, Jackie said there was a great team in terms of writer, producer, director and composer "so I don’t think there will be any difficulty while shooting the film". 

Asked whether he has watched the original movie, he said: "I really liked the original Marathi film."

"I don’t watch films as much but I made a point to see that film. I cried and laughed while watching that film and I am glad that I got opportunity to be part of such film which touched the heart of Marathi speaking audience," he said.

The remake is written by Niren Bhatt, a renowned Gujarati scriptwriter and the story is co-written by Karan Vyas. The film will be directed by Umang Vyas.
