His life has been nothing less than that of a movie! From being a local dada in Mumbai to one of the most acclaimed and loved actors of his times, Jai Kishen Shroff a.k.a Jackie Shroff has come a long way.
The original ‘Bhidu’ of Bollywood, Jackie Shroff became the next big thing of Bollywood with his ‘Hero’. Audiences loved his macho-ism, his unique style of acting and his way of delivering dialogues. No one would have thought that a local goon would have such great expressions and acting skills. Be it comedy, romance or action, Jackie Shroff is adept at all!
He wasn’t the usual hero we were used to. He never shied away from playing the supporting role or the villain. Rather, his most iconic roles are those where he was seen supporting the lead actor yet stealing away all the limelight. Come 2018, and the man would have completed 40 years in Bollywood, which is in itself a huge one and no man, without exceptional acting skills and large fan following, can complete forty years of active work in the film industry!
Last seen in the 2014 Blockbuster ‘Happy New Year’, Jackie Shroff would be making his presence felt in ‘Dirty Politics’ and ‘Brothers’ this year!
