Today is the birthday of Jackie Shroff, who won everyone’s heart with his acting. Jackie Shroff has given many hits and superhit films in his career and today on his birthday, we are going to tell you about him. Jackie Shroff was born on February 1, 1957, in the Teen Batti area of Valkeshwar, Mumbai. Many of you would hardly know that Jackie Shroff’s real name is Jai Kishan Shroff. Yes this is true, and the actor made his debut in films with the film ‘Swami Dada’ though he got recognition from the film ‘Hero.’ The film was directed by director Subhash Ghai and he changed the name of the actor from Jai Kishan to Jackie Shroff.

At the same time, in today’s time, people also know him by the name of ‘Jaggu Dada.’ Let me tell you all that Jackie Shroff, who came to the limelight from the film ‘Hero,’ had millions of fans and due to this, people are eager to see him. In that era, every producer-director wanted Jackie to sign his film, for which big directors used to reach his house. The problem during that time was that if Jackie used to be in the toilet and the producer-director would stand outside the toilet and wait for him to get the actor in his film. Let me tell you all that Jackie Shroff came to the world of films after rising from poverty and hardship and he knew the price of it very well.

Due to this, even after the film ‘Hero’ was hit Jackie did not stop staying in the slum. Yes and in that period, the filmmakers had to go there to get him in their films. It is said that even big directors like Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Mahesh Bhatt had gone to Jackie Shroff’s house to get Jackie Shroff in their films. Let me tell you all that Jackie Shroff worked in about 150 films and made his own identity. If we talk about personal life, the actor had a love marriage with Ayesha in the year 1987 and they have two children Tiger Shroff and Krishna Shroff.
