While promoting his upcoming family entertainer JugJugg Jeeyo, Anil spoke to Bollywood Hungama. The interviewer recalled Jackie Shroff’s interview, and quoted Shroff’s view on him saying, ‘Anil used to switch off car’s AC to sweat.’ After hearing this, Anil instantly added, “Yeh sab bakwas hai. They are all jealous of me. Sab jalte hain yaar.  Even Neetu asked about it, “Paseene se kya hota hai? Anil replied her said, “Kuch nahi yaar, folklore bana dia hai. Exaggeration hai.” Anil even added that his JugJugg Jeeyo co-stars copy his actions, but his co-stars asserted that they are in awe of him. Speaking about Anil and Jackie’s chemistry, the duo has been a part of several blockbusters like Yudh, Parinda, Ram Lakhan, Andar Bahar, Karma and other films like Kabhi Na Kabhi, 1942: A Love Story, Trimurti, Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja.
