Anil Kapoor recently said some things about Jackie Shroff in Karan Johar’s famous chat show ‘Koffee with Karan 7’. Now Jackie Shroff has given his reaction on Anil Kapoor’s statement. Actually, Anil Kapoor had said about Jackie Shroff that Jackie Shroff was an outsider, yet he got a big break in Subhash Ghai’s film and became an A-lister actor with only one announcement.
Jackie Shroff reacted to Anil’s comment
In the latest episode of ‘Koffee With Karan Season 7’, Anil Kapoor revealed that he was insecure about Jackie Shroff’s success as the latter got a film under the banner of Subhash Ghai. Karan had asked Anil to share his views on nepotism after the actor spoke about Jackie and said that despite being an ‘outsider’ he had become an A-lister, at a time when Anil was doing ‘small roles’. Now Jackie has reacted to this statement of Anil. In a new interview, the actor said that when a man of Anil’s ability says something like this, he was giving Jackie a lot of respect.
The question on nepotism was answered
During ‘Koffee With Karan Season 7’ episode 11, Karan asked Anil Kapoor and the show’s other guest Varun Dhawan a question about nepotism. Anil had said, “I don’t take it seriously… When I started my career, of course there was Sunny Deol, there was Sanju (Sanjay Dutt).” When Karan interrupted to add Jackie Shroff’s name, Anil said, “Jackie was kind of an outsider, but still he got his first break from Subhash Ghai.
So, he himself became an A-lister actor with that one announcement. At that time, I was doing a few roles. I was doing South films. I didn’t feel good about it” when Karan further asked Anil, “Did you feel insecure about Jackie’s success at that time? The actor replied saying, “Yes. He became a huge success. And I remember very well that on the sets, when people came to get his autographs, Jackie would ask me to sign the autograph book too and then do it myself, it was amazing.”
Anil has a pure heart – Jackie Shroff
Now, talking about Anil’s statement on ‘Koffee With Karan’, Jackie told a leading website, “It’s normal to look at your elder brother and say oh… but I know he is such a person. One who truly loves to the bottom of his heart and what he says is such a beautiful emotional performance that not many people say no. He has a pure heart and speaks only what he feels. It gives me a lot of credit when a man of his ability says he’s giving me so much respect.”
