Yaadein Mithai Ke Dibbe Ki Tarah Hoti Hai... Ek Baar Khula Toh Sirf Ek Tukda Nahi Kha Paoge- how relevant is this dialogue from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani! Taking trips down the memory lane is a beautiful feeling! In fact, one of the detoxes that Gen-Y people should take these days is cutting themselves from their phones and just glance through old albums. Well, Ayesha Shroff, Jackie Shroff’s wife and Tiger Shroff’s mother recently took such a break and posted a beautiful picture, fresh from the archives.

Ayesha Shroff and Jackie Shroff’s love story is as filmy as it can get! She was a girl from uptown and he hadn’t become ‘Jaggu Dada’ back then and used to live in a chawl. He spotted her at the tender age of 13 and introduced himself to her, which was exactly when Ayesha had realised what a good-looking man he was. That is exactly when, at that very naive age when Ayesha had realised that there was no looking back for her and that she was in love and wanted to marry him. And soon enough, amidst multiple problems, it was on June 5, 1987, on Ayesha’s birthday when the duo had officiated their wedding.
Ayesha Shroff often takes to Instagram and shares mesmerising pictures from her inside-life. Very recently, she took to Instagram and posted a rare, throwback picture from their earlier days looking content with hubby, Jackie Shroff. In the picture, Ayesha was seen lying down on her hubby, Jackie’s lap, who, in turn, took her in his arms. Sharing the picture. the star wife captioned it as “In the arms of Prince Charming @apnabhidu.” Here’s the snap:
Isn’t it completely drool-worthy? Coming back to Ayesha Shroff and Jackie Shroff’s love story, in case you thought the aforementioned detail of their love story is filmy, the best is yet to come. Before Jackie confessed his feelings for Ayesha, he had told her that he was in love with another girl who went to the USA for her higher studies and that she still trusts him. Ayesha was so much in love with Jackie that he asked him to write a letter to his then-girlfriend, asking her that if the three of them could live together, if she wanted. This made Jackie realise how much in love is Ayesha, with him. Divulging more details about the same, Ayesha had shared in an interview, “I had no option. I could either lose him or I had the option of keeping him with her, and I chose the latter." (Must Read: Shraddha Kapoor Shares A Rare Picture Of Her Parents On Their 38th Wedding Anniversary)
Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff are more friends than a couple and that is probably the secret of their ever-lasting bond. In an interview with the Bombay Times, Jackie had an interesting take to tell about his wife, Ayesha Shroff and had stated, “About It [photo shoot] was for some magazine which ran it on the cover. Do you know that I borrowed that underwear from Ayesha? She was my girlfriend then. I was a gareeb from Teen Batti, I didn’t have the swimming trunks I was required to wear for the shoot. So, Ayesha gave me a part of her two-piece bikini, and it fits me well. I am not ashamed of it, I never was. People talk about feminism and choices, and the shift in the man-woman equation today. I wore a woman’s bikini for my shoot back in the 1980s. I am proud of it.”
In a 2018 interview with Spotboye, Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff had spoken about them as a couple and as parents to Tiger Shroff and Krishna Shroff. About the same, Ayesha had shared, “More than husband, Jackie has been my best buddy, so that’s how it has been so great for 29 years. As a father too, he’s been the best that a father could be. We have been through so much together, and it’s been a lot of fun, probably now is the best time of our marriage and lives together--- no complaints at all.”
Jackie Shroff too had added, “I couldn’t have asked for a better wife than Ayesha. When we were teenagers, that time also as a buddy she was fabulous. Now as a wife also she’s superb, she’s taught me the class, manners, English, the way to present myself, because I was this rough South Bombay boy, whom she transformed into a courteous gentleman. She has been the finest mother, without even me being around, as I used to be busy shooting for 3 films at a time, she managed to take care and nurture our son and daughter in the best possible way. Ayesha and I understand each other completely, and I believe that in relation as you grow, friendship is that one factor which makes your bond last.” (Also Read: Hina Khan Reveals Beau, Rocky Jaiswal's Reaction To Her Music Video, 'Raanjhana' With BFF, Priyank)
