- Jackie Shroff revealed the moment when he realised he was "famous"
- "I really wanted to meet Big B," said Jackie Shroff
- "But I find his kids coming to take my autograph," he added
Jackie Shroff and Amitabh Bachchan co-starred in films like Sarkar 3, Eklavya and Akalya. Jackie Shroff became an instant hit with his 1983 film Hero but there was a lean period, during which he made only a few hit films like Karma. His career was revived by 1989 movie Ram Lakhan, in which he famously co-starred with Anil Kapoor.
Coming from a chawl in Mumbai, the actor never believed that he could make it big in Bollywood. But it was his astrologer father who was confident that Jackie Shroff is destined to be a star. "My father said that I will be an actor but I scoffed at him. I wondered, 'How can a boy from Teen Batti (Mumbai) become an actor?' I went to a hotel to become a chef and then tried becoming a flight attendant but no one took me," the actor added.
Jackie Shroff will be next seen in Phamous, which also stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Kay Kay Menon and Pankaj Tripathi. The film will hit the screens on June 1.
