Mumbai: Actor Jackie Shroff, who will be seen playing central character in The Playboy Mr. Sawhney has said that unfortunately people take a lot of pleasure looking in others’ personal life.

Reacting on #MeToo movement where Jackie Shroff’s former colleagues Nana Patekar and Sajid Khan are facing the heat, Shroff said, “It’s unfortunate at the moment. Both of them were my colleagues. They are fighting it out in public and washing their dirty linen out there. People are watching and enjoying out there”.
“Unfortunately, people get a lot of pleasure looking in others’ personal life.”
When asked to comment on Nana Patekar and Sajid Khan, who have been ousted from Housefull 4 by Fox Star Studios, the producers of the film, Shroff said, “I don’t want to fan it. If they take (these men) in their films or don’t, it’s their call.
If they don’t remove them, there might be an agitation. So let it rest.”
The Playboy Mr. Sawhney revolves around young guy (Tahir Raj Bhasin) who is facing problems with his girlfriend seeking the advice of his grandfather (Jackie Shroff) in the matters of love and life.
Talking about his association with the short film, Shroff said, “Not only me but a lot of people are making short films. I hope filmmakers keep approaching me to do short films so that I continue working in them.”
