Jeetendra’s Biography

Jeetendra Biography

Jeetendra is an Indian actor working in Indian Movies. Jeetendra’s birthplace is Amritsar, India. Jeetendra's height is 5.9 feet.

Indian actor Ravi Kapoor, whose screen name is Jeetendra is best known for his roles in Hindi films. Additionally, he oversees Balaji Motion Pictures and Balaji Telefilms as chairman.

The 1960s to the 1990s was the span of Jeetendra's active acting career. With V. Shantaram's Geet Gaya Patharon Ne (1964) and Boond Jo Ban Gayee Moti, Jeetendra received his first significant breaks. However, the 1967 movie Farz served as his springboard to popularity. His distinctive outfit was a white t-shirt and white sneakers that he purchased from a shop establishment for the Mast Baharon Ka Main Aashiq number in Farz. Films like Caravan and Humjoli, in which Jeetendra had more dance routines, came after Farz. In the movies, his energetic dancing earned him the nickname Jumping Jack of Bollywood.

Since the beginning of Hindi cinema, he has played a major role in approximately 200 films, a record only a few of his contemporaries have accomplished. For Telugu film remakes directed by T. Rama Rao, K. Bapayya, K. Raghavendra Rao, and Dasari Narayana Rao, Jeetendra was frequently partnered with Jaya Prada or Sridevi. Examples of these films are Sanjog, Aulad, Majaal, Justice Chaudhury, Mawaali (1983), Himmatwala (1983), and Tohfa (1984). Additionally, he worked closely with Krishna on several Hindi remakes of his Telugu films.

Jeetendra's Girlfriend


Jeetendra's Girlfriend Hema Malini

Jeetendra and Hema Malini earlier shared a passionate relationship. However, before either of them got married, they were each experiencing issues with their romantic partners. Jeetendra and Shobha were experiencing their own ups and downs, while Dharmendra was not committing to Hema Malini.

Hema Malini and Jeetendra decided to be married after too much upheaval, and they actually came very close to doing so. Hema and Jeetu may still be married today if it weren't for a drunk Dharmendra showing up at their wedding location.


Jeetendra's Girlfriend Sridevi

Jeetendra eventually began acting in numerous South Indian movies. He then met Sridevi at that point. In an effort to promote Sridevi as an actress, the actor brought her to Mumbai, but soon after, rumours of an affair began to circulate. The two actually appeared in numerous films together, but Jeetu ji sought to dispel the rumours because he was now an adult and had two children, Ekta and Tusshar Kapoor. 

As a result, he organised a picture session at his home. Shobha was so enraged by this that she treated Sridevi with extreme coldness. Later, Shobha threatened Jeetendra, saying that she would leave the house with the kids if he didn't terminate his association with Sri. Much afterwards, Ekta Kapoor admitted it.


Jeetendra's Girlfriend Jaya Prada

Jeetendra's affair with Jaya Prada was largely a subject of rumors. She was a different South Indian diva that Jeetu Ji began pushing in Bollywood. Some claim that he merely did this to show Sridevi that he can make anyone famous. Some have claimed that while Jaya Prada was completely wild for him, Jeetendra was not at all sincere in his feelings for her.

Then came Mawaali, a 1983 Hindi film starring Jeetendra, Sridevi, and Jaya Prada all three. Even though the movie was a tremendous success, there were rumors at the time that Sridevi and Jaya hated each other when they weren't on site.


Jeetendra's Wife

Jeetendra Wife

When Shobha was just 14 years old, Jeetendra had first met her. She completed her education, attended college, and worked for British Airways as an Air Hostess. Jeetendra dated Shobha from 1960 to 1966, when he was trying to establish himself as an actor. They remained together until 1972. Jeetendra and Shobha didn't decide to be married until after the release of Bidaai on October 18, 1974, and they did it in a low-key wedding at Janki Kutir with just a few close family members and friends in attendance. They almost got married, according to Hema Malini's official biography, but she pulled out.

Two kids were born to Jeetendra and Shobha during their marriage. Their son Tusshar Kapoor is also an actor, and their daughter Ekta Kapoor oversees Balaji Telefilms. In the 2003 thriller Kucch To Hai, which was produced by his daughter, Jeetendra had a fleeting cameo appearance alongside his son Tusshar.
