Which sister-centric film song moves the macho Jackie Shroff to tearsIn the recently released popular paper-back book ‘R D BurMania—PanchaMemoirs’ authored by eminent senior entertainment journalist Chaitanya Padukone the macho Jackie-Dada in his fond tribute to Pancham-da confides, “Bhidu, whenever I hear that sentimental retro RDB-composed song ‘Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai, ek hazaaron mein meri behna hai, ’ emotionally, meri vaatt lag jaati hai. And I am invariably moved to tears.
