Jackie Shroff Slapped Anil Kapoor 17 Times While Filming Parinda

Jackie Shroff shared an anecdote from the time he was shooting Parinda with Anil Kapoor, as the film is all set to clock 30 years soon

Bollywood superstars, Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff have undoubtedly been one of the most iconic duos of the industry. Starring in Subhash Ghai's directorial Ram Lakhan together back in 1989, both actors have come a long way. They starred in multiple films ever since, namely KarmaParindaYudhAndar BaaharRoop Ki Rani Choron Ka RajaLajja and the most favourite of all, 1942: A Love Story. But one of their films, Parinda, will soon be celebrating its 30 years. And in a video released to mark the film’s upcoming anniversary, Jackie shared an anecdote from the shoot of the film.

In a video shared by Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films on Twitter, Jackie reveals that Anil had asked for multiple retakes for a scene in which he had to slap the actor. The clip then shows the particular scene from Parinda, but Jackie said, “He wanted to express that his elder brother had slapped him. The first shot was okay-ed by the director and he got the right expression as well. But he said - no I want one more. I slapped him. He again said one more. I slapped him 17 times for the scene. I couldn't just act as if I am slapping him. I had to slap him as one couldn't get his reaction if you slap in the air.”

While Jackie and Anil’s chemistry was loved by many, it seems like the two might be coming together for a project soon. Rumours of a remake of Ram Lakhan have been rife, possibly under the direction of Rohit Shetty - who enjoys making cop films. An insider had revealed, “It’s a crime-comedy that tells the story of two 50-year-old cops and is slated to go on the floors in Mumbai later this year." It added that for now, the film will be titled Ramchand Kishanchand, possibly implying the names of the characters the actors will play. However, nothing has been confirmed so far.
