Veteran actor Jackie Shroff has an interesting year to look forward to as far as work is concerned. He will be making a cameo appearance in Lucky Morani’s Iranian-Indian film, Devil’s Daughter and speaking about it, he said, “This will be the 12th language I’ve spoken on the screen. I have worked in 11 languages so far, and this is an exciting addition. I play a cameo in the film, but I can’t reveal much right now.”
It may be a fact that Jackie is less frequent on the silver screen but according to Jaggu dada, nothing much has changed for him. He also mentioned that turning older doesn’t really make much of a difference to him. “Nothing has changed for me. I have always been content and satisfied. To be honest, I grew up having nothing, so whatever I have today is more than I could have ever imagined.” The actor is currently completing his shoot for the movies Firrkie, Paltan and Saaho.
If that’s not all, Jackie gave indications to things he wanted to focus in life. He said, “I have always been inclined towards gardening, and now I am going to focus more on it. I also hope people sit up and do something about water conservation. We don’t need panel discussions or live debates to discuss water. We need practical solutions. I think that Aamir Khan is doing a great job with Paani Foundation and we all should follow suit.”
Talking about the huge amount of awards he bags, Jackie said that awards are a token of appreciation from the audience and they give him a boost to do better work. He has four Filmfare awards to his name and was also honoured with the HT Most Stylist living legend Award.
