Actors Jackie Shroff and Salman Khan, who have worked together in several films, will now be seen as a father-son duo in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. Jackie is just 10 years older than Salman but will be playing the role of his father in the film. However, the actor has no apprehensions about portraying the character and calls Salman his “bachcha (kid)”.
Talking about their age gap and their onscreen roles, Jackie told Mid-Day, “I am aware that the age gap is only 10 years. We started our careers almost around the same time, but I don’t have any problem playing his father. I have always treated Salman like my bachcha. Even today, he is like a kid to me.”
Recalling how Salman used to admire his style sense, he added, “I remember, [in our early days], he would admire my jeans and shoes.” He also justified his role saying, “I played Kareena Kapoor’s father in Yaadein in 2001, and a few years back, I did it with Aamir [Khan] in Dhoom 3 (2013). If the character is good and I am convinced about it, other factors don’t matter to me.”
Jackie had worked with Salman in films such as Bandhan (1998), Sirf Tum (1999), Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye (2000), Kyon Ki (2005) and Veer (2010). Besides Bharat, the actor has a long list of films lined up for release this year. He will be seen as John Abraham’s mentor and an intelligence agency head in the film Romeo Akbar Walter. He also has a few south projects in his kitty including Vijay’s Thalapathy 63 and the remake of 2010 Telugu film Prasthanam.
Bharat also stars Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Tabu and Disha Patani. The film’s teaser was liked by the viewers and showed Salman in various avatars. The film is the big Eid release of the year and is scheduled to release on June 5. It revolves around the protagonist’s journey, which runs parallel to India’s story from 1947 to the present day.
