Ayesha Shroff Reveals Mom Was Against Her Marriage With Jackie Shroff, She Reassured Her To Return

Iconic actor, Jackie Shroff needs no introduction. Owing to his bhidu-style personality, Jackie is hugely loved for his charismatic looks and onscreen presence. He is fondly called Jaggu Dada. Thus, this reason was enough for his current wife, Ayesha Shroff to fall in love with him at the mere age of 13. However, while Ayesha belonged to an affluent family, Jackie was born and brought up in the chawl. This had also become a huge problem before their marriage from Ayesha's side. However, discarding all, they tied the knot on June 5, 1987, and later were blessed with two kids, Krishna Shroff and Tiger Shroff.

When Ayesha Shroff started dating the actor, Jackie Shroff

In a recent interview with Zoom Entertainment, Ayesha Shroff revealed how she was head over heels for Jackie Shroff when they had started dating. However, her mother was completely against the relationship due to Jackie's not-so-affluent background. Moreover, Ayesha's mother heard about many bad things from their acquaintances. Thus, without an option, Ayesha had to sneak out with Jackie. She said:

“When I started dating my husband, my mother had completely banned it because he was like ‘Jaggu dada’. And then of course there are people who fill your ears and say ‘he is such a bad boy.’ So I used to sneak out and meet him.”

"And finally one day, I just told my mother ‘you know mom, he may not be the richest guy in the world, but he is the best hearted guy and he will keep me happy.’ And she said, ‘how you’re going to live there,’ because at that time we were living in Teen Batti Chawl."
