Jackie Shroff lost his make-up man, Shashi, who worked for him for over three-and-a-half decades. The actor took to Twitter to pay tribute to him. Sharing a picture of them, he wrote, “Shashi Dada. Will always be in deepest corner of my Heart. My make up person for 37 years passed away.”
Gurmeet Choudhary and Rahul Dev offered condolences, as did fans. Replying to one comment, Jackie wrote, “He was my Soul Mate.”
Jackie made his debut as a leading actor with Subhash Ghai’s Hero in 1983. The film, which also starred Meenakshi Sheshadri, went on to become one of the biggest hits that year. He has since starred in films such as Ram Lakhan, Khal Nayak, Rangeela, Agni Sakshi, and Border.
Most recently, Jackie was seen as a police officer in Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, directed by Prabhudeva.
