Jackie Shroff recalls working with teenage Salman Khan 

Actors Jackie Shroff and Salman Khan recently shared screen in the action flick 'Radhe'. This wasn't their first collaboration as they have worked together in multiple projects over years. The duo were familiar even before Salman made it big in the film industry. Recalling, his initial phase of career, Jackie shared how teenage Salman Khan used to behave around film sets.

Jackie told a news outlet, "When I was modeling, Salman was just 17-years-old and he was getting to know the world of showbiz at that time since his father is one of the finest writers we have had. Me and Sanjay baba used to see this kid and how he used to style and slowly, he also started modeling. I saw his photos while working with his father and I showed them to my directors and he started getting roles. I saw the actor quality in him in his photos and the way he used to recite dialogues to me as an assistant director. I notice how an assistant director handles the actors and he did it beautifully. I didn’t know at that time that this kid is going to become such a big superstar one day.”

Jackie then shifted his attention towards present Salman Khan. He said, “During Radhe, he handled the film and even me, like a kid. He always keeps a role for me in his films, it’s like a compulsory thing and with him, my bond is like such that I also say yes to it every time. This time he gave me comedy under the tutelage of Prabhudeva, who has been an actor, director, and choreographer himself. And if he took that risk of giving me comedy, then he must have thought it through, and it worked so well that people tell me even today that, ‘kya hasaya hai bhidu’.”
