At the launch of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre in Mumbai over the weekend, Bollywood stars made back-to-back red carpet appearances. One celeb, however, won the Internet’s heart with his red carpet appearance. We are talking about film veteran Jackie Shroff. On Saturday, Jackie Shroff walked the red carpet at the Ambani event with a sapling in his hand. The 66-year-old actor, who has been an active advocate of planting trees, was pictured with a plant in his hand, not just on the red carpet but in the inside pictures from the party as well. Twitter users were super impressed and gave a shout out to Jackie Shroff in their own mem-tastic way.
The official Twitter page of IMDb India shared an interesting movie idea, featuring Jackie Shroff. It had a picture of Jackie Shroff alongside that of Groot and the caption on the post read: “Movie idea: Jackie Shroff and Groot travelling across space, visiting various planets and telling everyone to plant more trees.”
