Actor Jackie Shroff has revealed that he felt like a star when Abhishek Bachchan, as a child, asked for his autograph.
"I was shooting for a film when Abhishek Bachchan and his sister Shweta came to take my autograph. I was in a hotel room when I was informed that Amitabh Bachchan's children want to meet me and want my autograph. I felt like a star," Jackie Shroff told reporters at the trailer launch of his new film Housefull 3, which also stars Abhishek.
"Abhishek is a very focused and dedicated actor. He is a great kid," Jackie said.
Abhishek, who was also present at the event, said that Mr Shroff is the only actor whose autograph he has taken.
Mr Shroff also praised the actresses, who star in Housefull 3 - Nargis Fakhri, Lisa Haydon and Jacqueline Fernandez.
"Nargis is a lovely, beautiful girl and is hardworking. Lisa has done a good job in the film while Jacqueline is a good actor and dancer and she looks fabulous. She is working with my son Tiger in a film," said Mr Shroff.
Mr Shroff also praised his other co-stars in the film - Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh.
"Akshay is badmaash and so is Riteish," he said in a lighter vein and added "but both are good at their work."
Mr Shroff was thankful to producer Sajid Nadiadwala for casting him in Housefull 3.
"Sajid is a good guy. He launched my son Tiger in the film industry and is taking good care of him," he added.
Housefull 3, directed by Sajid-Farhad, is scheduled to release on June 3.
