Jackie Shroff has won our hearts for his kind heart, romantic nature and killer looks. However, the 13 year old Ayesha Dutt had also fallen in love with the charismatic actor.
Ayesha had born with a silver spoon but Jackie had come from a 'chawl'. Jackie had introduced himself casually and had said he used to play in the neighbourhood. When she had met him, magic happened.
Jackie and Ayesha had again met at the records shop where she was buying some records and Jackie had offered some help. She had realised how handsome he is and had decided to marry him.
When Jackie and Ayesha had started dating, he didn't have much to offer her, he couldn't give her anything luxurious. They used to go for window shopping and sit on the top of double-decker buses.
Before Jackie had met Ayesha, he was in love with another girl who had gone to the US. Ayesha was madly in love with him and had agreed to share him with her as sisters.
Jackie had said in an interview with Simi Garewal that when Ayesha had got to know about that girl she had written a letter, "once you come back, we will live like sisters and get married to Jackie".
When Ayesha was asked about living with Jackie's ex-gf as sisters, she had said, "I just wanted him. If there was a choice between losing him and keeping with her, it is as simple as that".
Jackie and Ayesha come from two different worlds, and her mother wasn't ready to let her daughter get married to Jackie. But Ayesha had made up her mind and on June 5, 1987, they had tied the knot.
The lovebirds had welcomed their first child, Tiger Shroff on March 2, 1990. They had welcomed their second child, Krishna Shroff, on March 21, 1993 and had completed their family.
Ayesha speaks French, while 'Jaggu Dada' loves to talk in 'tapori' dialect. It is clear that love has no language, no barrier. Even after coming from different societies, their love has always won.
