"When I heard the narration, I could sense that the story was inspired from real life. It is an in your face kind of negative role. Kabir Sadanand said to me that he had written the part especially for me, as he felt that if I played it, I would give a different shade of villainy to it," Jimmy said in a statement.

After 'Special 26', Jimmy is again teaming with Akshay for the production venture as they share a great rapport.

"It was great to reconnect with Akshay," Jimmy said.

'Fugly' is a story of four friends Dev, Devi, Gaurav and Aditya and how this carefree bunch, at the threshold of their lives, get caught in an incident, which sucks them slowly into the big bad world of corruption and politics.

The film will be a launch pad for Mohit Marwah, Olympic medalist boxer Vijender Singh, Kiara Advani and Arfi Lamba, the freshest faces to join the film fraternity.

The youth comedy drama film releases on June 13.
