Jackie's return to Vinod Chopra camp after 7 yrs
By Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
When Vidhu Vinod Chopra went mainstream with PARINDA , Jackie Shroff was the first actor to be taken on board.
Since then VVC has repeated him for his subsequent films like 1942-A LOVE STORY  and MISSION KASHMIR . Though KAREEB  did come in between, there was no role suitable for Jaggu dada in the film.
After MISSION KASHMIR, VVC concentrated on being a producer and came up with MUNNABHAI MBBS , PARINEETA  and LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI , none of which has Jackie Shorff starring in them.
But later when VVC wielded the megaphone once again after a hiatus, he didn't forget his good old buddy Jackie and penciled him in for a key role in EKLAVYA - THE ROYAL GUARD. Playing a villain again after MISSION KASHMIR, Jackie Shroff enacts the character of Jyotiwardhan, younger brother of Rana Jayawardhan [Boman Irani], in the film.
As Jaywardhan's Chief Advisor, Jyotiwardhan is a man who had always nurtured the ambition of being the man in charge of the royal fort and along with his son Udaywardhan [Jimmy Shergill] plots Rana's downfall.
