Jackie Shroff has been in the movie industry for over four decades now. He has more than 220 films to his credit, in about 13 languages ​​in Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, Punjabi, Bhojpuri, Konkani, Odia, Gujarati and English. In Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas, Jackie played the role of Shah Rukh’s friend, Chunnilal, earning praise even with his limited screen time.

Recently, Filmfare asked Jackie about the kind of roles he’s looking forward to in the present day and age. Jackie said, “I really have no idea. The industry has experimented a lot with me because filmmakers know I don’t say no to roles. It never occurred to me to distinguish between leading roles and minor roles. For example, in Devdas, the titular role is played by Shah Rukh Khan. But I had a fantastic part in it as Chunnihal. In Mission Kashmir, Sanjay Dutt and Hrithik Roshan were both heroes and I was the villain with only seven scenes.”

“So I experimented all the time. It never bothered me that if I don’t sing a song, I’m not a hero anymore. I feel like if I’m part of a movie, that’s more important. Like the chair you’re sitting on, if you cut a leg, the whole thing falls. So you must be that one leg. That’s the important part. The value you add is important,” he added during the conversation.
