Does Jackie Shroff smoke?: No (quit) [13]msn.Does Jackie Shroff drink alcohol?: No (quit) [14]News 18.Jackie Shroff is a popular Indian actor who has done more than 200 films in almost thirteen languages.He belongs to a Gujarati-speaking family of Mumbai. His father, Kakubhai Shroff was a Gujarati and belonged to a wealthy pearl traders family while his mother was a Turkish. The real name of his mother was Hoorunnisa, and she converted to Hinduism after marriage and took the name as Rita.His mother belonged to Kazakhstan, and when there was a coup in Kazakhstan, his maternal grandmother, along with her six daughters (including Jackies mother), came down all the way through Ladakh, Delhi, and finally settled in Mumbai. Jackie Shroff With His Parents at Teen Batti.Just like Jackie, his parents also had a love marriage. When his parents got married, they both were teenagers.After his father had lost lots of money in shares, he shifted to a small one-room flat in Teen Batti at Malabar Hill in Mumbai where Jackie was born and grew up. [15]T2 Jackie shows around his childhood home to Arjan Bajwa.Jackie lived at Teen Batti till the age of 30. It was his wife, Ayesha who later sold the flat and got him a new flat. At that time, Ayesha was a model and belonged to a wealthy family staying in a 4,200 sq ft house in South Mumbai. Jackie first met Ayesha at a bust stop when he was 15 while Ayesha was 14. While talking about Ayesha, he says, Ayesha is half-French and half- Bengali. I first saw her when she was 14 or 15 standing at a bus stop. I saw her lovely legs. The bus stopped, I stopped and I said, Hi. And I said, My name is Jackie. She said, My name is Ayesha. I said, What do you do? She said, I have come to meet my boyfriend. I said, I have come to play on the playstation. And it started off from there. [16]Times of India An Old Photo of Jackie Shroff and His Wife Ayesha.There is a sad story behind his nickname Jaggu Dada. It was, in fact, his elder brother, Hemant Shroff, a mill worker, who had earned the title of Dada in the chawl area in Mumbai where his family used to live. His elder brother was very popular in the locality for his helping hand. However, his elder brother had a tragic end when he drowned into the water while saving a person from drowning. At that time, Jackie was 10 years old. While talking about it, Jackie Shroff says, My brother was the real Jaggu Dada of our chawl. He used to take care of our slum people, look after them when in need. But at a very young age, unfortunately my brother jumped into the sea to save someone. And my brother didnt know swimming, so he started drowning. I threw a cable line at him; he held onto it, was floating for few seconds but the cable slipped out of his hands. I was young and scared, and I stood there watching him drown. After him, I decided I had to look after my slum people just like he does and then I TURNED INTO JAGGU DADA. [17]Dailyhunt.After his brothers demise, he became such a frightened child that he would often hide under the bed even on a crackers noise. It was his mother who boosted his morale and raised him to become a successful person. He was so attached to his mother that while talking about it, he says, I loved my mom too much. But I always ask myself that if I loved her so much, why didnt I burn myself with her. I get vivid dreams about my mother thrice a week. I go to my old house in my dreams and go sit with her and press her feet, sitting down besides her. I touch my mothers photograph every morning after taking a shower and show her picture to the sun as she used to pray to the sun every morning. An Old Photo of Jackie Shroff With His Mother.
