    Very few know that Jackie Shroff loves cooking. "Cooking has fascinated me since childhood. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching my mom prepare food in the kitchen. The aroma of spices always held my attention. I am a huge foodie and love snack items like vada-pav, bhel-puri, bhajiyas, etc. However, I have cut down on junk food due to health reasons. As a vegetarian, I can say that vegetarian dishes can be equally tasty as meat preparations," Jackie Shroff had told mid-day earlier.

    Further speaking about his culinary skills, Jackie added, "I love cooking in my spare time. I know it doesn't really go with my image, but I really do. I am also a strict vegetarian (doesn't go with my image either!). I love all kinds of vegetarian dishes - the Maharashtrian pithla bhakri, thalipith, vangi bhath and then the South Indian rice dishes, pastas and crisp pizzas. I love Italian food and usually cook it for my family and friends. I'm an expert in pesto sauce. And I have been told by many that my cooking is very good."

    Talking about his initial days, Jackie Shroff had said, "The first 15 years of my career I did sing songs but I never really danced. Then came the trend of two-hero films. So there was me and Anil, me and Sunny and so on. I kept doing anything that came my way. Mujhe farak hi nahi padta. Height hai, body hai, aawaz hai, discipline hai. Khada ho jata hoon toh dikh jata hoon (smiles)."
