Is Jackie Shroff's prime over?
I don't really think so.
But aren't the roles difficult to come by now?
Everytime I think about my age, to my surprise, I get offers which are really out of this world. That's what keeps me going.
What other films are you working on?
I am working on Subhash Ghai's Yaadein. Then there are Vidhu's Mission Kashmir and Raj Kumar Santoshi's Lajja.
Surely you are very much in the industry...
Definitely. I do have films which make me feel here we go again.
But talking of chocolate heroes, where do you stand?
Right from my Hero days, I was never in the race. I came as an anti-hero.
So you are concentrating on quality roles..
I have always been doing films like Parinda, Aar Ya Paar or Gardish. I never changed gears.
But are you happy playing the second fiddle to the hero?
I believe that such roles are very strong pillars of our films. How long can the hero sing songs?
Like your role in Rangeela..
Exactly. I didn't have...
