Jackie Shroff Turns 62: Here’s How to Rock the Bhidu Look

Jackie Shroff turns 62 this Friday 1 February and he hasn’t looked better! The actor has spent almost 40 years in the film industry and acted in over 220 films. After making his debut in 1982 with Swami Dada, Jackie tasted blockbuster success in 1983’s Hero. Apna Bhidu immediately became a household name for his inimitable swagger.

Jackie remained one of the coolest heroes of Bollywood throughout the 80s and 90s, before settling into selective and memorable supporting turns in the 2000s. While son Tiger Shroff has become a star in his own right, Jackie has major films like Bharat, Romeo Akbar Walter and Saaho lined up.

The one thing that has remained constant is Jackie’s off-screen style, which has evolved and aged along with the actor like fine wine. No matter where he is, Jackie makes a statement with his unique fashion sense.

So let’s take a glance at some of Jackie’s recent appearances, and take notes on how to rock that timeless Bhidu look.
