EXCLUSIVE: Jackie Shroff opens up on his bankruptcy, losing his home: I worked and repaid everyone
It won’t be wrong to say that Jackie Shroff is the coolest dad in Bollywood. Today, on Father’s Day, we decided to get Jackie and his daughter Krishna Shroff, to chat with Bollywood Bubble. In this candid and emotional chat, the father-daughter duo open up about their bond, how dad Jackie always played in to Tiger and Krishna’s mischief.
Apart from that, Jackie revealed how life was in a Teen Batti chawl with his parents battling financial problem, how his mom never let him feel the struggle & how he battled his financial troubles and bankruptcy when they also lost their home. But son Tiger Shroff, who has slowly catapulted himself to be one of the biggest superstars of this generation, had promised his parents that he would get the house back and he did.
The superstar’s wife Ayesha Shroff had produced a film Boom in the early 2000s that bombed at the box office and the family lost everything, including their house. Jackie Shroff got candid and emotional about the whole episode and shared, “I knew that we tried something and we lost something. If I had to pay for it, I’d pay. I had worked as much as I could and we repaid everybody so that my family’s name gets clear. Business mein up down hota hi hai, yeh zaroori nahi hai ki hum hamesha upar hi rahenge. Kabhi upar niche hota hai, but you need to know how to keep your sanity and ethics.”
He also adds that he and wife Ayesha never let it affect the kids. “My kids didn’t understand anything. They were too small and we didn’t let it get to them,” he said. The baap beti also talk about their relationships, how Jackie reacts to his kids’ partners and their opinion on Tiger’s girlfriend Disha Patani. All this and more, in this video.
