In the first picture that Jackie Shroff posted, Jackie Shroff’s makeup artist and the actor can be seen deep in conversation. It is a candid shot and the two of them do not know that they are being captured. The picture is highly pixelated making it seem that it has been clicked from afar. Through the picture, it seems Jackie Shroff’s make-up man is giving him some tips on his nails. The second picture is one where the two of them are seated together in what looks like a restaurant. This time the two of them know that their picture is being clicked and they are posing for the camera. Jackie Shroff is sitting with his arms around his makeup artist in the picture.

Jackie Shroff’s wife Ayesha Shroff also shared a post to express her loss at the passing of Mr Shashi. She shared the same picture that her husband had shared as his story and wrote ‘Rest in peace Shashi Dada’.
