Actor Jackie Shroff, who was lately seen playing a crucial role in Sarkar 3, has said that he has been a huge fan of late actor Dev Anand.
At a special ‘meet and greet' held on Sunday at the New Excelsior Mukta A2 Cinema in Fort here for the re-premiere of Jackie's classic film "Khalnayak", Shroff shared some of his fondest memories of shooting with filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who has directed the film.
"I'm a huge Dev Anand fan. When we were filming for ‘Hero', my dialogue delivery would come out in Devji's style. At that time, Subhash sir would remind me that I am supposed to sound more like Shatrughan Sinha, not Devji," Jackie said in a statement.
"I am very happy that our film 'Khalnayak' is being re-premiered at India's largest screen. I wish I could watch my favourite song from the movie ‘Der se aana jaldi jaana' once again," Jackie added.
Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, Sarkar 3 featured Amitabh Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Amit Sadh in pivotal roles.
