Jackie Shroff Was Always a Part of Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi, He’s Not a Recent Addtion

Jackie Shroff has been added to the cast of Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi along with Akshay Kumar who plays the lead

Reports splashed on Saturday in certain sections of the media when Jackie Shroff turned 63, suggested that birthday boy Jackie Shroff had been added to the cast of Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi almost as a birthday gift. But the fact is, Jackie was always a part  of  the Sooryavanshi cast. “He plays an important role. Jackie was cast from the start. He isn’t a last-minute addition. Akshay Kumar and Jackie have known each  other for years. Akshay’s mother-in-law Dimple Kapadia is one of Jackie’s closest friends. The  pair has done  any number of films together. Strangely Akshay and Jackie have never worked together until now,” says  the source.

Shedding light on Jackie’s character, the source says, “Jackie will make a guest appearance at a key point in the  film. He will make a dramatic revelation that will change the course  of the storytelling.” Speaking on his role Jackie says, “I have worked so many times with Rohit’s father, the great action director Shetty. Now to be working with  Rohit… it feels like  a complete circle. I’ve always enjoyed Rohit’s cinema.”

Jackie spent his birthday with his wife Ayesha, son Tiger and daughter Krishna. Says Jackie’s daughter Krishna, “Dad’s birthday was super low-key. The entire day the family was together. We went to one of our favourite restaurants in  Mumbai: China House at the Grand Hyatt. It was really nice  because the four of us don’t get to spend  time together that often.” Adds Jackie, “Being with my family is the best thing I can think of doing. My wife and my bachchas are  my world. Any day that we spend together is birthday for me.”
