Biography

Jackie Shroff, or Jaggu Dada, as he is fondly called, is a renowned actor in the industry. After delivering hits like Hero and Parinda in his younger days, he went on to impress audiences with his characters in Mission Kashmir and Devdas. Jackie Shroff, born Jaikishen Kakubhai Shroff, hails from the Udgir District of Latur, Maharashtra. He was born to a Gujrati astrologer, Kakubhai and his Kazakh wife, Rita Shroff. He also had a brother, Hemant Shroff, who drowned at a very young age. Shroff grew up, idolizing his brother, who used to look after the local people. He tried his hand at odd jobs before landing a few modelling assignments. Shroff made his acting debut in Dev Anand's movie, Swami Dada (1982). His breakthrough came with Subhash Ghai’s Hero (1983), where he was cast opposite Meenakshi Sheshadri. The movie was a blockbuster and brought both leads to the limelight. Subhash Ghai also gave him his screen name, Jackie Shroff. Subsequently, he went on to do most Subhash Ghai films. Some of his films in the following years were Andar Baahar (1984), Paisa Yeh Paisa (1985), Mera Dharm (1986), Diljalaa (1987) and Aakhri Adaalat (1988). In 1987, his film Kaash earned him great reviews and critical acclaim. He won his first Filmfare award for Parinda (1989). Shroff went on to do films like Pathar Ke Insan (1990), Lakshmanrekha (1991), Prem Deewane (1992), Rangeela (1995), Border (1997), Laawaris (1999) and Mission Kashmir (2000). During these years he won many nominations for his characters portrayed on screen. Post late 90s, he shifted from lead roles to supporting characters that have layers. Some of his memorable performances were in films like Devdas (2002), Ek Aur Ek Gyarah (2003), Hulchul (2004), Kyon Ki (2005), Bhagam Bhag (2006), Shootout at Wadala (2013), Happy New Year (2014) and Dirty Politics (2015) among others. His latest films include Brothers (2015) and Jazbaa (2015). He earned the Special Honour Jury Award for outstanding contribution to Indian cinema. Apart from films, he has been a judge on a magic show called India's Magic Star broadcast on Star One. In 1987, he married his childhood sweetheart, Ayesha Dutt, who is a film producer. The couple runs a media company, Jackie Shroff Entertainment Limited. They have two children - a son, Tiger, who recently forayed into acting, and a daughter, Krishna.
