An Alumnus of the New York Film Academy, Jackky Bhagnani is a Bollywood actor, who made his debut with the 2009 sci-fi romance Kal Kissne Dekha. However, he gained recognition with the mildly successful F.A.L.T.U, which marked the directorial debut on ace choreographer Remo D`souza in 2011.

After appearing in the commercially and critically unsuccessful Ajab Gazabb Love in 2012, Jackky was cast alongside Priya Anand, Rajpal Yadav, Vijay Verma, and Amitosh Nagpal in the Hindi remake of the Tamil movie Naadodigal titled Rangrezz. Directed by Priyadarshan, the movie won rave reviews, however, it failed to do well at the box office. Playing the role of Abhimanyu Kaul, a young man who is forced into politics after the death of his Prime Minister father, Jackky was next seen in the 2014 drama Youngistaan paired opposite Neha Sharma.

The following year, in 2015, he was cast alongside Arshad Warsi and Lauren Gottlieb in the satire comedy Welcome 2 Karachi. Making his debut as a producer, Jackky was associated with the Aishwarya Rai and Randeep Hooda-starrer biographical drama Sarbjit, which went on to become a critical and commercial success. He then went on to produce the 2018 romantic comedy Dil Juunglee, which stars Taapsee Pannu and Saqib Saleem in leading roles. As an actor, Jackky`s 2018 projects includes the Trisha Krishnan-starrer horror-thriller Mohini, which marks the actor`s Tamil movie debut. His other release includes Jawaani Jaaneman, directed by Nitin Kakkar.
