Jackie shroff used to be a small time dada ( gunda) at teenbatti in south bombay to a popular model. Dev anand picked him up for a movie called swami dada which was directed and produced by dev anand. Jackie got a small role in that movie. The movie failed miserably at the box office. When do dev anand directed movies work at the box office anyways.

Jackie career lifted up when subhash ghai picked him for the main role for his megahit movie hero in 1983. The first choice was sanjay dutt, but sanjay couldn't do the movie for some reason so jackie was signed in. This movie starring jackie and meenakshi sheshdari sent the cash registers ringing and turned jackie into the hottest newcomer on the block.

When jackie shroff entered the movies, sanjay dutt, sunny deol and anil kapoor were also newcomers to the screen. Jackie and anil kapoor formed the most popular team in the 80's. Together they were scene in movies like andar bahar which did good business, yudh was also a hit but before anil kapoor sanjay dutt was signed in his place, but sanjay was kicked out for his drug problems and anil was signed in.

They were together in subhash ghai's karma which was blockbuster hit of 1986, Uttar dakshin which didn't do that well at the box office, kala baazar was also a flop, ram lakhan was a superhit and brought anil kapoor most of the fame, because he had a better role in the film, although jackie did do a splendid job in the movie. Jackie time came when the movie parinda hit the theatres, directed by vidhu vinod chopra, the movie was a superhit and jackie got a best actor award and also nana patekar received a villain award.

Jackie was considered a famous nonactor, because most of his movies bombed at the box office. jackie proved himself quite firmly with a moving performance in mahesh bhatt's movie kaash, but it was vidhu vond chopra's parinda that changed jackie's image that's here's an actor that people have been missing.

Jackie did a movie called angaar in 1990's which proved to be successfull and jackie was nominated for best actor. people call jackie jaggu dada, because his tapori days were back in the 80's when he was a dada.

Jackie did a movie called 100 days with madhuri dixit that did pretty good business. Then there was khalnayak, which sanjay dutt stole the show, but jackie performance was also acclaimed by the critics. JAckie's last solo hit movie was Gardish, one of my favorite movies and jackie's best performance in bollywood cinema. The movie got best action of the year award. Most of the people don't agreee with ending of the movie Gardish, buit I thought it was great seeing jackie in a sunny deol type role. He also did a movie called aaina with juhi chawla and amrita singh the movie did prettty good.

Then again in 1995 vidhu vinod chopra's 1942 a love story fetched jackie a another award for a supporting actor and ramgopal varma's rangeela got him a another award for a supporting actor. He did agnisakhi in which nana patekar stole the show in, but the proved proved to be a hit at the box office.

Jackie was seen as a villain in the movie like mission kashmir and farz, in which he did a great job in. IN 2002 he came in the movie devdas, the movie I never watched, because I hate shahrukh khan, I heard jackie did a great job as chunnilal and he was nominated for supporting actor. He was also nominated for the best villain for mission kashmir.

Jackie went into b grade movies with mithun chakarborty of course mithun chakarborty movies only work in gujarat. that must be jackie shroff worst decision of his life. Although mithun and jackie are great actor's they went into the wrong path. MIthun did came back with elaan did a knockout performance.

in the meantime jackie formed his own company jackie shroff entertainment limited (jsel) and produced a film called grahan which did terrible at the box office. jackie is also producing and starring in a movie called sandhya the album realeased in 2002, but the movie never came out. Jackie produced a another film called boom which realeased in 2003. That movie was real disappointment, what was the point of making that movie.

One the whole jackie shroff is a very good actor, who's been missing in action in a solo role since gardish in 1993. I would like him to come to the screen again and get a another award.
