Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor have acted in many films together including icons Ram Lakhan and Parinda. The co-actors share a great camaraderie not only on screen but also off screen. We recently caught a glimpse of Jackie Shroff responding to how Anil Kapoor shares a sibling-like bond with him. It came in response to how Anil Kapoor recalled the time when he wasn’t sure about Jackie’s fame, but at the same time he also spoke about how humble the actor was and treated him with respect.
Jackie Shroff Responds to Anil Kapoor’s Confession on Koffee With Karan 7; Says, “He’s a guy who cares about me deep in his heart”
During his recent stint on Koffee With Karan 7, as Karan Johar discussed the era when Anil Kapoor joined the fraternity, the veteran actor recalled the time Jackie Shroff was announced as the male lead in a Subhash Ghai film . Readers will recall that the actor made his debut in 1983 starring Meenakshi Seshadri in the lead role Hero. He said: “Jackie was an underdog in a way, but still he got the first breakthrough from Subhash Ghai. So even with just that one announcement, he became like an A-lister. At that time I played small roles and made South Indian films. I wouldn’t say I felt good about it.” Karan asked Anil, “Did you feel insecure about Jackie’s success at the time?” To which the actor frankly replied, “Well, yes. It became a huge, huge hit.”
On the same show, he also reminisced about the time he sat on the sets with Jackie Shroff and how fans flocked to get an autograph. Anil admitted he was happy to see so many people on the sets of his film, but later realized they had come to meet Jackie. But the actor was such a humble person that he asked Anil to sign her autograph books with him.
Responding to Anil Kapoor’s comments, Jackie Shroff said in an interview with Times Now: “It’s normal to look up to your older brother. But I know he’s a guy who, deep down, really, really cares about me, and what he’s saying is such a beautiful emotional display that not many people say. His heart is absolutely pure and he speaks what he feels. That gives me a lot of credit. When a man of his caliber says that, he gives me so much respect.”
