‘Every Minute With Jackie Shroff Sir On The Hello Charlie Set Was A Laugh Riot!’ — Aadar Jain

Aadar Jain is eagerly waiting for the release of his film, Hello Charlie. The trailer of the film dropped a few days ago and it is garnering attention because of his comic timing and his one-of-a-kind, hilarious friendship with a gorilla (which is actually Jackie Shroff in disguise).

Hello Charlie is an adventure of a young simpleton (Charlie) from a small town who is given the task of transporting a Gorilla (Toto) from Mumbai to Diu. What transpires then is what makes for a hilarious tale!

Aadar says that sharing screen space with the yesteryear star was a true-blue fan moment for him:

I’ve always been a big Jackie Shroff fan and after working with him, I’ve become an even bigger fan of his. He’s a rockstar in the truest sense and hands down the coolest person I’ve met! I had a blast working with him, we share a great bond and I just have the most amount of love & respect for him, as an actor and as a human being.

Aadar adds:

I’ve known him for many years now. Even before I became an actor, we met first on the sets of Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ in which I worked as an assistant director and I always wanted to share screen space with him, so to finally get the opportunity to work alongside him in ‘Hello Charlie’ was really special for me.

Aadar says that he cherishes every minute that he has shared with Jackie on the sets of Hello Charlie and shares:

Every minute with Jackie Shroff sir on set was a laugh riot or an exchange of warm words. We heard a lot of young cool African music together and exchanged many interesting stories about my family and his.

Talking about how Jackie was a big motivator for Aadar on the sets, he says, “To be honest, he just always showered me with a lot of love and praise, and that in itself was really encouraging and motivating for a young actor like me. If at all, he just said ‘bindaas bidhu, just enjoy yourself!”

Starring Aadar Jain, Jackie Shroff, Shlokka Pandit, Elnaaz Norouzi, Rajpal Yadav, Darshan Jariwalla, Girish Kulkarni, and Bharat Ganeshpure among others, Hello Charlie is directed by Pankaj Saraswat, Produced by Excel Entertainment‘s Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar.
