Jackie Shroff's inspiring journey from humble beginnings to becoming a legendary star.

MUMBAI: Jackie Shroff, born Jaikishan Kakubhai Shroff on February 1, 1957, in Bombay (now Mumbai), has faced his share of challenges and tragedies. Growing up in Mumbai's Teen Batti area, Jackie had to discontinue his education after the 11th grade due to financial constraints. His father, from a formerly affluent Gujarati family, had experienced setbacks in the stock market, leading to a modest lifestyle for the family.

At the age of 10, Jackie witnessed a tragic event that would leave a lasting impact on his life. His elder brother, just 17 years old at the time, drowned while trying to save a friend. Jackie has openly discussed the trauma of this experience, acknowledging its profound effect on him. Despite the hardships and tragedies, Jackie remained resilient, finding inspiration in the good memories and positive values his brother imparted to him.
