‘Apna Bhidu’ aka Jackie Shroff has been a heartthrob for over two decades now. The father of Tiger Shroff has left no stone unturned in winning hearts across generations. Jackie, who tied the knot with Ayesha Shroff in 1987 was blessed with two children, son Tiger Shroff, and daughter Krishna Shroff.
On Wednesday, Ayesha Shroff took to Instagram to share a scintillating picture of the 61-year-old where he is seen flexing his muscles looking a fit as ever. Within minutes of sharing the image captioned, 'Woah!', Tiger Shroff commented, 'Wowww daddyyyyyy'.
Jackie Shroff will be returning to the silver screen with the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial titled, ‘Bharat’. Slated to release on Eid 2019, this much-awaited action drama also stars Salman Khan, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover and Katrina Kaif.
The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial made headlines after its lead actress Priyanka Chopra opted out of the film. ‘Bharat’ would mark Salman and Priyanka’s on-screen reunion after 10 years. However, it wasn't meant to be and Priyanka reportedly backed out from 'Bharat' due to her engagement to Nick Jonas. The makers then found the actress’ replacement in Katrina Kaif.
According to media reports, Jackie Shroff will allegedly be playing Salman Khan’s father in the film. Confirming Jackie Shroff’s addition to the film’s star cast, Ali Abbas Zafar earlier told ANI,
“We met Jaggu da in London and discussed his dates and looks. I have wanted to work with him for a long time as I feel he is the perfect amalgamation of a star and actor. I was very glad as Jackie sir instantly agreed with the story to do the film in just 20 mins of narration.”
Meanwhile, son Tiger Shroff will next be seen in the sequel to ‘Student Of The Year’, titled ‘Student Of The Year 2’. The much-awaited Punit Malhotra directorial will mark Ananya Panday’s debut in the Hindi Film industry.
