With so much negativity and uncertainty around us, it is only natural for many people to not feel their best. Top it off with money issues and the rising unemployment. Under these circumstances, it is very easy to lose faith. However, in case you’re looking for some mood-lifter today, you’re in the right place.
A video of actor Jackie Shroff went viral on Twitter wherein he’s heard giving some solid life advice. He talks about how it’s important to keep having a positive attitude and come to terms with one’s loss. What makes the video better is his typical ‘Bambaiyaa’ accent!

India Today quoted him saying:
“If you look at the sadness of people around you, you will realise you are going through nothing as compared to them. You should not keep crying over things that you didn’t get. You are a healthy person and that is enough. People should learn to be happy by whoever they are and whatever they have got. You are human so it is evident that you will have sadness in your life. Everyone has to die some day or the other. Your mom, dad, family, everyone will have to leave you some day. We all know that.”
He goes on to add, “However, you should not cry over that. If you start crying, you will cry for the rest of your life. Have some energy. Whatever problems you face in life, make sure to keep your smile in front of people. Keep your spine straight. Don’t take tension at all.”
Of course, the Hindi is what makes the video a worthwhile watch! Have a look:

I hate Bollywood stars and the kind of influence they normalise but when I hear some speak, I just have to humble myself down and pay attention
