Yesterday was Dev Anand’s birthday. Dev Anand made movies with love and launched several new faces. It was the actor who had launched Jackie Shroff and introduced him to the cinema. For those who do not know, Jackie Shroff’s debut film was Swami Dada by Dev Anand’s Navketan Films.
Jackie Shroff spoke to the E Times and remembered the first time he met Dev Saab. He says it was Dev Anand’s son Sunil Anand who took him to meet Dev Saab. “I think he had seen one of my commercials in the morning and when I stood in front of him with his son he said: ‘Subah Subah tumhari tasveer dekhi thi, shaam ko tum more saamne khade ho. Tumhe ek role dunga main (I saw your photograph in the morning and you stand in front of me in the evening. I give you a role). ”
And soon he was offered a role and got the second lead. The lead role was played by Dev Anand himself. But after 15 days, Jackie Shroff got a call again, and now that he was going to meet Dev Anand, he said he had given his role to Mithun, but there was still a role for him. “From the other leading hero, I became the second lead villain to Shakti Kapoor sir. 15 days mein mera demotion ho gaya (For 15 days I had been relegated), ”shares the actor. However, Jackie Shroff has no complaints or regrets it even today. He sees the opportunity as a blessing, and he says, “For me, it was a blessing from Dev Saab that his hands were on my head. He laid the groundwork for my acting career. He sowed the seeds. ”
Now that’s not really cute. The actor in the interview relives several more memories with the deceased superstar. Jackie Shroff’s honesty and the way he relives stories is what always touches our hearts.
