Jackie Shroff had tears in his eyes and Amitabh Bachchan was moved after actor Suniel Shetty opened up about the death of Jackie’s late mother, Rita Shroff on the latest episode of Kaun Banega Crore Crorepati.
Jackie Shroff and Suniel Shetty will be seen on the Shandaar Shukravaar episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13. Suniel in the recent episode spoke about Jackie Shroff’s thoughts after his mother passed away.
In a pre-recorded video shared by Sony on Instagram, Suniel Shetty revealed that Jackie Shroff shared a ‘beautiful’ thought after his mother died. “Bahut khoobsurat baat dada ne kahi thi, jab ek room ke kholi mein tha aur maa khasti thi, toh dada ko pata chal jaata tha ke maa khaas rahi hai. Aur jab ke bade ghar mein gaye… (Dada shared a very beautiful thought. ‘When I used to live in a one-room chawl, if my mother would cough I would know’). But when they moved into a bigger house, he didn’t know when his mother passed away,” Suniel said.
Shetty’s words moved Jackie Shroff and brought tears in his eyes. Suniel Shetty also wiped away tears while speaking while Jackie kissed him on the forehead. “Aaj kal ke zamaane mein bahut kum milti hai aise dosti (In today’s day and age, very rarely do you find such friendships),” Amitabh commented.
Jakie Shroff’s mother Rita Shroff died after a stroke. He revealed that he was very concerned about his mother. “When we lived in a small room at Teen Batti, if she coughed I could hear and could immediately say, ‘Kya hua mom, kya hua pa?’ When we moved to a bigger house in Bandra, mom had her room, papa had his room and I had mine and so I came to know in the morning that she had died. If I’d come to know in the night I could have taken her to the hospital,” the actor revealed while speaking candidly.
The actor said that he loved his mother immensely, so much so that he had underlying guilt after she died. “I loved my mom too much. But I always ask myself that if I loved her so much, why didn’t I burn myself with her. I get vivid dreams about my mother thrice a week. I go to my old house in my dreams and go sit with her and press her feet, sitting down beside her,” he said.
