Jackie Shroff Reacts To Actors Avoiding Two Heroes Film – “Insecurity Toh Rahegi”

Jackie Shroff addresses Akshay Kumar’s comments about actors not doing multi-starrer films, says they are insecure of sharing screen space

Jackie Shroff never shies away from voicing his opinions. The veteran actor spoke about insecurity among today’s generation of actors. He recalled yesteryear’s work culture when he worked with Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor. He reflected on actors feeling insecure about doing two heroes or three heroes films. 

Earlier, Akshay Kumar, at one of the Koffee with Karan 7 episodes, mentioned it is difficult to make a multi-starrer or even a two-heroes film. As a producer, he has struggled to cast two actors in a movie. Reacting to the same Jackie said during his time actors had no issues with contemporaries but at this time actors feel insecure.

Elaborating on his point, the veteran actor said, “today’s age actors are insecure to share screen space with each other as compared to 80s-90s actors. I think they are still doing three-hero films and two-hero films. As for insecurity, some people have it for sure, some people don’t care, but Sanju baba and I, we never had any issues with each other.”

He further added, “I think even nowadays, there are people working in two-hero, three-hero films, these things are happening. My son is doing Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, with Akshay Kumar, so people are working in two-hero films. Insecurity toh rahegi chhote, kissi kissi ko hota hai, kissi kissi ko nahi hota hai (Insecurity is obvious in our profession, some have it some don’t), that’s a normal feeling. Job pe jate hai teen chaar jan, toh dekhenge ki uska kaam achha hai, mere nahi, woh insecurity toh rehti hai (In our job, 3-4 actors work in proximity and then they notice the other person is doing much better, that’s when insecurity kicks in).”

“Mujhe lagta nahi ki aajkal ke bachchon mein hai, thoda thoda sab mein hoga, but that’s normal, it’s a normal phenomena, bhidu (I don’t think modern kids have insecurity, they might feel it on occasions, but that’s normal), Jackie Shroff concluded.

On the work front, Jackie Shroff was last seen in Aditya Roy Kapur’s starrer Rashtra Kavach Om. He would be next playing a major role in Zee5 original Atithi Bhooto Bhava that will premiere on 23rd September. He also has Katrina Kaif starrer Phone Bhoot and Quotation Gang in the pipeline.
