Jackie Shroff reveals he once wore bikini for a photoshoot

Monday, April 1, 2019 • Tamil Comments

Popular Bollywood star Jackie Shroff casually admitted in a recent interview that he had once worn a woman’s underwear for a magazine photo shoot during his initial struggling days in the industry.

Jackie Shroff revealed in the interview that he was required to wear swimming trunks for a popular magazine photo shoot in the 1980s, but as he couldn’t afford them, he had borrowed the bottom of a bikini from his wife Ayesha (who was then his girlfriend) and worn them instead. He admitted that he was not ashamed of it at all and that he was in fact very proud of it. He added that the one-piece fit him perfectly as well. “It [photo shoot] was for some magazine which ran it on the cover. Do you know that I borrowed that underwear from Ayesha? She was my girlfriend then. I was a gareeb from Teen Batti, I didn’t have the swimming trunks I was required to wear for the shoot. So, Ayesha gave me a part of her two-piece bikini, and it fit me well. I am not ashamed of it, I never was. People talk about feminism and choices, and the shift in the man-woman equation today. I wore a woman’s bikini for my shoot back in the 1980s. I am proud of it,” Jackie Shroff stated.

It was recently revealed that the down-to-earth actor has been roped in to play the role of the villain in Vijay-Atlee’s upcoming untitled movie, Thalapathy 63. Produced by AGS Entertainment, the movie is scheduled to be released this Diwali.
