Actor Jackie Shroff has shared a hitherto unknown fact about his long-time friend, Salman Khan. Shroff stars alongside Khan in Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai which had a multi-platform release on the 13th of May. Besides Shroff and Khan, the film also stars Disha Patani and Randeep Hooda in pivotal roles. In an interview with a leading daily, Shroff opened up about his relationship with Khan. “I have known him as a model and then as an assistant director, who handled my clothes and boots when I was shooting for Falak (1988). He used to look up to me and is like my little brother,” he said.

“When he was an AD, I used to show his photographs to the producers I was working with. Finally, KC Bokadia’s brother-in-law gave him a break in Bollywood. It was Maine Pyar Kiya (1989) that catapulted him to stardom, but I feel that I was instrumental in him getting a break in the industry. Toh aise dosti shuru hui…well, dosti itni nahi hai ki (This is how our friendship started…well, our friendship is not such that) we are very close, but he keeps coming up with films, aur jab bhi kuch bada aata hai toh (and whenever anything big comes up) he thinks of me first,” he added.

Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is directed by Prabhudeva and features Khan in the role of an encounter cop who has made it his mission to clean his city from the menace of drugs. The film is based on the popular South Korean film, The Outlaws.
