Sanjay Gupta, director of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback movie “Jazbaa”, posted a mysterious tweet on 6th April. His tweet read:
Day-after a very special actor and a dear colleague of many years joins the cast of JAZBAA. Guess who? PS. April fool is over.— Sanjay Gupta (@_SanjayGupta) April 6, 2015
The media got buzzing on the tweet and various guesses were made. None were right though. It was a big surprise for everyone. 3 days later, Sanjay Gupta finally revealed the surprised as he announced that the mystery celebrity was none other than Bollywood’s Jaggu Dada a.k.a. Jackie Shroff.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and 58-year-old Jackie Shroff, were last seen together in 2002 mega hit, Devdas. It’s been 13 years since they last acted together in a movie and thus it’s a very pleasant and a happy reunion. Jackie last worked along with Sanjay Gupta in the movie “Jung” that came out in the year 2000. So it’s a reunion for them as well after 15 years. He will also be seen in Karan Johar’s new movie called “Brothers” where he will be acting alongside Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra.
Sanjay Gupta has also roped in the very fine actor of Bollywood industry, Atul Kulkarni in “Jazbaa”. He recently tweeted about the same.
Now that we have two more new big names, Jackie Shroff and Atul Kulkarni in the movie; Jazbaa is now power packed big multi-starrer movie. The list is huge and Sanjay Gupta really loves it, as is evident from his latest tweet:
Aishwarya, Irrfan, Shabanaji, Jackie, Atul Kulkarni, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Abhimanyu Singh all in one film is proof that GOD loves me. :-)))— Sanjay Gupta (@_SanjayGupta) April 10, 2015
Aishwarya Rai’s Jazbaa is, at the moment considered to be the most awaited Bollywood movie of the year 2015. That’s a good sign. Eagerly waiting for the movie to finish and then finger crossed for its success. Hope all goes well.
