‘Biopic Movies’ are a thing now in 2019 and biopics are being made on almost every celebrity you can think of. If rumours are to believed, then you must see one based on Salman in some time. But one actor that I wish that they would make a biopic on is none other than Jaggu Dada aka Jackie Shroff. With Jaggu Dada celebrating 62 years of awesomeness (read: birthday) this February, we thought it would be a good time to look back at his fantastic career.
Just like any other actor in this Industry, Jackie Shroff has had his ups and downs in the industry. From Hero to his recent Hindi movie Paltan, he has played diverse roles in the movies and has been redefining his roles even today. This veteran actor has pulled some amazing role in his career, but most of his fans still believe that his best ever performance is his portrayal as Jaggu Dada in Hero. He also played the role of Chunni Babu in the 2002 movie, Devdas, has given some serious friendship goals to us.
According to cinema lovers, they saw a new side to him in recent years. He started taking up more serious roles and nailed each one of them. Even in his latest Paltan movie, his role as Maj. General Sagat Singh was on point, and we can’t think of anyone who could have pulled that off that efficiently. Dada has also done some amazing roles in prominent South Indian movies. Though there are many movies, our favourite will always be the 2010 Tamil movie Aaranya Kaandam. The way he got into the skin of Singaperumal, an infamous gangster in Madras who is not able to keep up with his enemies was marvellous. Despite having very few dialogues in the movie, he made sure his acting did all the talking.
His experiments with films went a notch further when he started featuring in short films. Of all the short film he has been a part of, the 2017 short film Khujli directed by Chintan Ruparel & Anuj Gosalia got him immense acclaim, and the Filmfare Short Film Award for Best Actor. Looking at that way he has experimenting in recent years, the day is not far when you will see him in a web series.
Bollywood is the perfect platform for those who are ready to give everything that they got, and that is exactly what Jackie Shroff did. He has turned into a living legend and someone that all the upcoming actors can look upto, even for his own son. No matter what role he is given, be it a Don in Aaranya Kaandam or a Soldier in Paltan, he has made sure that he did proper justice to the role. We hope to see him in more roles in the upcoming movies.
So, what kind of movies do you want to see him? Let me know in the comment section.

This is a really sweet fan post you have written. I can’t believe he is already 62! He is so well-maintained. I am not a big fan of his though.
Jaggudada is a cool dude at every age! Loved his acting in his earlier movies especially Parinda and he rocks the screen even today. Actually Tiger Shroff has big boots to fill in.
I’ve grown watching Jackie Shroff movies and loved in him everything from Ram Lakhan to Devdas. He always was a good actor and I hope he does more short films appropriate for his age.
I just loved the blog, I am a big time of Jackie Shroff, I have no idea about how many times I would have watched Hero. And yes I am also very excited to watch Paltan.
