Jackie Shroff has worked in nearly 150 films and played variety of roles, but this one is different. This time Jackie plays a spiritual leader Sai Baba in his forthcoming movie â€˜Malik Ekâ€™ to be directed by Deepak Balraj Vij slated for October release. And so much is Jackie enthralled by this project that he has even quit smoking and drinking and turned into a complete vegetarian to get into the skin of the character.
‘I have quit smoking and drinking for the last one-and-a-half years and plan to continue with it in the future too. I did not have the habit of eating non-vegetarian food much, but I have stopped it completely now.’ Jackie said.
Intitially Jackie was apprehensive about the role but Deepak was adamant about casting him. ‘Initially, when he had approached me with the project, I did not agree as I thought playing Sai Baba would not be possible for me. But the constant persuasion from the director made me say yes and then I never looked back,’ ponders Jackie.
Jackie, who is also an ardent follower of the spiritual guru, said: ‘Now I feel as if Baba is guiding me in the film and I am only following his instructions.’
Jackie is also working in Sohail Khan Productions’ ‘Kisaan’, where he will be seen as a Sikh farmer.
