New Delhi:

Even the best of actors have a fan moment when they run into Amitabh Bachchan. It is no different for stars who have worked with him several times. We say this because Jackie Shroff, who enjoys a tremendous fan following of his own, has shared a note on Instagram about Amitabh Bachchan. Jackie Shroff talked about finally getting his hands on an autograph of the legendary actor. Recently, Jackie Shroff was presented with an autographed necktie on the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), the popular game show hosted by Amitabh Bachchan.

Sharing a photo of the necktie, Jackie Shroff said that he always wanted to ask for Amitabh Bachchan's autograph and that he would always hold it close to his heart.

In the note, Jackie Shroff wrote, “Amitabh Bachchan Sir, some years ago I wanted to get your autograph, but for some reason, it didn't happen. KBC pe mujhe ye mauka mila (I had the opportunity) and I couldn't resist asking for it. Thank you for being so gracious and affectionate and signing one of your beautiful neckties for me. I will cherish it forever.”

The picture revealed that Amitabh Bachchan had signed the necktie with the note, “To Jackie Bhidu. Love, Amitabh Bachchan.” He also mentioned the date September 18, 2021, and wrote KBC.  For the uninitiated, Bhidu is what Jackie Shroff is fondly called by fans and co-stars. In fact, Jackie Shroff's social media handle is Apna Bhidu which translates to “our buddy/pal”.

Take a look.

Fans also got a glimpse of Jackie Shroff on KBC from an image shared by Suniel Shetty. He had accompanied Jackie Shroff to KBC. In the image, the two seem to be engrossed in a question posed to them. Sharing the image, Suniel Shetty wrote, “Kidhar apun log (Where are we)?”  and tagged Jackie Shroff. 

Reacting to the image, Tiger Shroff, Jackie Shroff's son, left heart emojis in the comment section. Actor Rohit Roy said, “Rockstars. OG. Dadda and Anna.”

Suniel Shetty also shared an image with Amitabh Bachchan from the sets and wrote, “Wonderstruck as always at the knowledge and discipline one can imbibe from the legend, the mighty Mr Bachchan. After that, you always walk away a crorepati. Thank you for the moments Amit Ji.”

Jackie Shroff and Amitabh Bachchan have worked together in several movies such as Eklavya, Kohram, Sarkar 3 and Akayla. Meanwhile, Suniel Shetty and Amitabh Bachchan have appeared together in Kaante.
