Jackky was an assistant producer for Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein (2001), closely observing and learning all aspects of film making. In 2009, he signed his first film as an actor, Kal Kisne Dekha Hai. In April 2011, he starred in F.A.L.T.U. The film was shot in India and Mauritius (the college of F.A.L.T.U was actually the University of Mauritius), and was based on the Indian educational system.
