Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff's Pulse Polio video ad has gone viral on social networking site Twitter and Facebook after 14 years.

The 5 min 3 sec unedited behind the scene footage of the ad that was shot in the year 1998-99 for a noble cause shows the actor struggling with his Hindi script and giving some hilarious abuses. The Rangeela actor was seen taking pointless retakes and giving the choicest of abuses in Hindi and Marathi.

The polio awareness ad featuring Jackie Shroff has put the actor in an uncomfortable situation after 14 years and became a topic of discussion after the ad went viral on Twitter and Facebook.

People on Facebook and Twitter took the video in a hilarious way and posted funny tweets about the actor and the video.

Here are some tweets of the people:

"@mooodles Blah! Just saw the Jackie Shroff video. But then, at least it was funnier than Delhi Belly."

"It's ironic that our behavior on Twitter is exactly like Jackie Shroffbackstage."

"@greatbong: And definitely Jackie Shroff would make a better president than Pranab. What inspiring Republic Day speeches he would give."

"@rameshsrivats: I've heard mother gaalis, sister gaalis & mother-sister gaalis. But JackieShroff is the 1st to put a mother's sister gaali."

"@coolfunnytshirt If Nirmal baba has the power of teesri aankh, Jackie Shroff has the power of 'maa ki aankh'"

" ‏@asadshan LOL amazing and brilliance, If you know who Jackie Shroff is ... Then this is the best video ever"   

Meanwhile, the actor defended his 14-year-old act and said one needs to understand that we relive stress before starting shooting.

"Arey, logon ko kaam dhanda nahin hai kya? I am terribly miffed with this mischief monger, who has made this public. What one needs to understand is that we relive our stress before starting work. In fact, we even take breaks in between to de-stress. People de-stress in different ways. What's wrong if I was in one of those bindaas moods? You don't have to take all that stuff, which wasn't supposed to be in the ad, so seriously. The video you've been seeing online since Tuesday is the canning of almost the entire proceedings of that shoot. And it's not rocket science to understand that," The Times of India reported quoting Shroff.

"I certainly don't mind masti mazaak and have a great sense of humour. But this video going online in its unedited version is something which is in very bad taste. Even as we speak, I am off to Rajasthan for work and I would appreciate if people get on with their own lives instead of making fun of senior actors and noble causes," he added.
