After observing Bollywood's prominent veteran actor Jackie Shroff's energy and style one cannot say that he is a veteran artist. On the other hand, Jackie is very humble and down-to-earth and this was recently observed by the people of Lucknow. Jackie's car got stuck in a traffic jam after which the veteran actor stepped down to clear the traffic like a traffic cop on duty, this can be only done by a 'Bindaas Bhidu' indeed. Later the actor took the act of traffic clearance to his Twitter handle, which has got extremely viral on the internet. Have a look! https://twitter.com/bindasbhidu/status/1021023851117973504 For those of you who are unaware of Jackie's struggles in the film industry here's an anecdote from his life. While speaking about it, he had shared in a Filmfare interview,
I used to live in a chawl at Teen Batti, a humble neigbourhood in Walkeshwar for 33 years. Every morning there would be a long queue for using the toilet. After becoming an actor too, I continued living there. Then it became a problem for producers and directors as they'd be waiting for me to reach the set. So I had to move out. Even today I visit the place. Chawl mein raha hoon isliye aaj bhi Bhidu bolta hoon. I can't forget my roots.In the same interview, he had also shared about how he used to make shirts from his mother's sarees. Jackie was quoted as saying,
There was a Khadi Bhandar near my house. I'd buy cloth sold at 3 per metre. I'd wear shirts made out of those or get shirts made from my mother's sarees. I'd also have shirts stitched from curtains and then paint designs on them. I had a unique style of dressing from the beginning, which I later brought to films. Like throwing a bandhini dupatta over my shoulder, which became a trendsetter.Despite all the stardom later in his life, Jackie never let success enter his head and that's what makes him unique from most of the actors.
