Bollywood Actors Suniel Shetty and Jackie Shroff's bonhomie goes back several years. During the initial phase of their film career, both the actors helped one other. They also worked in many movies together in the past two decades. Suniel and Jackie Shroff showed up as guests on Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan.

During the show, Jackie Shroff remembered how Suniel Shetty helped him with outfits from his shop. He also talked about Suniel Shetty helping him out when his father was ill. Remembering an incident when Suniel Shetty bought unsold tickets of Jackie's movie, the actor said, "Ek picture meri release huyi thi aur humlog inke hotel mein pahuch jaate the (A picture of mine was released and we used to go to his hotel). He had a hotel called Broadway."

"Toh waha humlog baithe the upar aur kisine aake bola, 'Jackie woh teri picture release huyi uski tickete abhi bhi baki hai, biki nahi'. Toh yeh bole, 'Ticket kharidle, jitne bache hai kharid lo. Full honi chahiye dada ki picture'. Toh unhone saari tickete kharid lee. Kaun kiske liye khariddta hai? Woh jaake meri picture ki ticket, aadhi kam thi, aadhi tickete kharid lee (laughs) (We were sitting upstairs when someone came and told us, 'Jackie, all the tickets of your new release hasn't been sold yet'. Then he said, 'Buy all the unsold tickets. His movie should have a full audience.' So he bought all the tickets. Who buys it for anyone? He went and bought half of the tickets)."

Suniel Shetty and Jackie Shroff have acted in many films together such as Border (1997), Refugee (2000), Baaz: A Bird in Danger (2003), Hulchul and Aan: Men at Work (2004), Kyon Ki (2005), Apna Sapna Money Money (2006) and Mukhbiir (2008).
