The otherwise rugged, jovial Jackie Shroff who has this hidden sentimental facet to him, earnestly regrets that he does not have any real-life sister who would have otherwise tied a ‘raakhi’ on his wrist.
In the recently released popular paper-back book ‘R D BurMania – PanchaMemoirs’ authored by well-known senior entertainment journalist Chaitanya Padukone, the macho Jaggu Dada in his fond tribute to Pancham Da confides, “Bhidu, whenever I hear that sentimental retro RDB-composed song, ‘Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai, ek hazaaron mein meri behna hai,’ emotionally, meri vaat lagg jaati hai. I am invariably moved to tears.”
“Because in real life, I don’t have a sister,” shrugs the suave style-icon; a self-confessed die-hard fan of R.D.Burman and his chartbusting songs. That’s sweet. We hope the R.D. song doesn’t make our Jaggu Dada over senti every Raksha Bandhan.
