The Young FICCI Ladies Organisation (YFLO) organized a very entertaining afternoon with the Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff at The Lalit New Delhi.The interactive session, ‘Up, Close and Personal’ was very capably anchored by Aanchal Sethi, Chairperson of YFLO, who was in her elements as she engaged in easy banter and next asked penetrating questions, ending it up with a rapid fire round.
Actor Jackie Shroff, aka Jai KishanShroff, has a career span of over three decades, with a repertoire of 207 films. Watching the man in action up close, we are not surprised that he has continued to remain the heart-throb and continues to have a huge fan following. The most endearing feature of any well-known person who has tasted success and wealth, is his humility, and never forgetting his roots.MrShroff won more hearts when he got off the dais to go up to a member of the audience who was not audible enough. He spoke at length about his journey from his humble beginnings at Teen Batti to the heights of stardom, his mother, his wife, his star son Tiger Shroff and more.
It was a full house. Some of the eminent people spotted at the Do were Neelam Rudy, Harjinder Kaur, Abha Dalmia, Divya Suri Singh, Neeta Boochra, Atashi Singhania, Mandira Lamba, Nelofar Currimbhoy.
Ms. Aanchal Sethi, Chairperson of Young FICCI Ladies Organisation,says, “The theme for this year at YFLO Delhi is Together We Transcend. It is my endeavour to showcase to our members inspiring and engaging success stories. Mr Jackie Shroff is one such prominent figure, whose rags to riches story, broke rules of stardom and went on to achieve great success and create waves across the cinematic fraternity. He conveyed his role as a father and his varied interests spanning from organic farming to style in today’s day and age.”
