Children shouldn’t pick up Deadpool 2 slang, says Jackie Shroff

Deadpool 2 has Ryan Reynolds as the foul-mouthed, hyper-violent character who isn’t afraid to push the boundaries. The film will also introduce fans to their first cinematic X-Force.

Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff has a connection with Hollywood superhero film Deadpool 2. Actually, the film’s dubbed version in Hindi uses one of the slang popularised by a Jackie blooper video. Ranveer Singh’s voice has been used to replace Ryan Reynolds in the Hindi version and he uses ‘Mausi***’ at a point in the trailer. He said that children shouldn’t pick up slang.

In a conversation with Mid-Day, Jackie said, “I did so in jest. People need to understand that as actors, we try to de-stress by joking around. But, I would like to tell kids that they should learn good things rather than pick up [the habit of using] slang.”

Jackie kept repeating a Marathi slang throughout a viral anti-polio campaign video.

Deadpool is a superhero from the Marvel Universe known for his sharp wit and frequent usage of slang. Ryan Reynolds even applauded Ranveer’s efforts in the dubbed film. He took to Twitter and said, “Well if I tried to curse in Hindi, pretty sure there would be an international incident.”

Jackie Shroff will next be seen in Lalit Bhutani’s dacoit drama, Phamous. He is playing a man who desperately wants revenge in the film.

Phamous that also features Jimmy Shergill, Pankaj Tripathi and Kay Kay Menon, is slated to hit the screens on June 1, 2018.
