Ali and Jackie Shroff bond on the sets of Prassthanam
Ali Fazal has currently begun his second schedule for Deva Katta’s Hindi remake of Prassthanam. The actor has been posting on his social media of the odd hours that he has been shooting. But the one post which got us extremely excited and intrigued was the one with our favourite Jaggu Dada aka Jackie Shroff. The Fukrey actor just posted a picture of him, Satyajeet Dubey and Jackie Shroff chilling in their vanity. They jammed to some rock and roll and discussed all the music they love and concert experiences each has had. Ali added that “Jackie Shroff is the coolest cat in B town I have ever hung out with.”
We had to probe the Victoria and Abdul actor a little more on his interaction with Bhidu and the talented actor finally gave in. “I’ve only learnt. And learnt not good but great things from Dada. Everyone knows him fondly. He radiates the fondness. He is far more evolved than many people I’ve come across in my lifetime so being with him has certainly been education both in life and on the celluloid. I watch him silently and listen to him talk. We have a very special and unsaid relationship in the film. You’ll have to wait and watch.” When asked about a memorable anecdote from their time shooting together, he said “There was a rain sequence me and Jackie Da had to shoot. I just remember even after both of us being drenched in water for over 8 hours. He was so worried about the stray animals that were in the shot getting wet and scared because of the noise on sets. Melted my heart to see such compassion and love for nature in a world where we r drowning in pollution of so many kinds.”
Their off screen friendship is off to a roaring start, we would really like to know if they are friends or enemies onscreen. Maybe frenemies? Time shall tell!!
