Childhood memories are always special. More so if your story is that of a rags-to-riches one. Nineties star Jackie Shroff recently took a nostalgic trip back to his childhood when he returned to his old home in Teen Batti — the same teeny-weeny pad where he grew up, spending 30 long years of his life.

In a quirk of fate, Jackie, who was on his way back home after dining at a restaurant in Colaba with friend, actor Arjan Bajwa, had a chance meeting with the current tenants of the house at a Marine Drive signal. And minutes later, Shroff found himself driving towards his one-room settlement in Walkeshwar. 

Bajwa reveals that while on their way back from dinner, Jackie saw two bikers signalling at him. "At a traffic signal, they caught up with us and told Jackie sir that they live in the same house where he grew up," says Bajwa.

Apparently, after meeting the two bikers, Jackie initially continued his journey homewards, but suddenly took a U-turn and headed towards Walkeshwar. Bajwa says, "He told me, 'They must have put on all the lights and must be waiting for me.' When Jackie sir entered the one-room tenement, he showed me where his mother cooked, the mori where he had a bath, and the balcony. He also explained how he would put up a rod and hang a curtain on it to divide the room for some privacy."

Aah! Some memories are indeed sweet.
