Even though Jaikishan Kakubai aka Jackie Shroff is one of the calm and simple heroes of the Bollywood but his film career is filled with various controversies. His biggest controversy happened with actress Tabu. Today, he is celebrating his 59th birthday, so let’s explore some of the pages of his life that mired controversies.
In the year 1986, Jackie Shroff was acting with Tabu’s elder sister Farah Khan for his film Diljale. Tabu used to come with her sister on the sets often. Stars were used to gather at Danny Denzongpa place for hangout. According to Farah, inebriate Jackie tried to assault Tabu sexually at Danny’s place, where Danny caught him and rescued Tabu. If Tabu would have been denied this allegation, then today actor Jackie Shroff’s career would have been destroyed to ashes.
He also said that he went under depression due to his addiction to drugs. He was so disturbed with his habit of taking drugs. He also told that he tried his luck at Taj as a chef apprentice. His ‘baigan ka bhartha’ is famous among Bollywood stars. But Taj rejected him as he fell short of the degrees they wanted.
After this, Jackie tried his luck at Air India for the post of a flight attendant, but there again he was rejected under eligibility criteria as he possessed minimum qualification. Then on one fine day while he was waiting for a bus at the bus stop a man walked upto him and ask modeling karega?’. Jackie who was empty-handed that time said yes and from that moment his journey towards stardom began.
Happy Birthday, Jackie Shroff. May you live long!
