Biography of Jeetendra

Description:

Jeetendra was born as 'Ravi Kapoor' on 7th April 1942, in Amritsar, Punjab. He took birth into a business family that dealt in imitation jewelry. He attended St. Sebastian's Goan High School in Girgaum, along with his friend Rajesh Khanna. He also used to visit film studios occasionally, mainly for the purpose of supplying imitation jewelry. Jeetendra got the first major break of his life with Geet Gaya Pattharon Ne, the 1964 film of V Shantaram. However, it was the film 'Farz' (1967) that served as his stepping stone to success. Farz was followed by films like 'Caravan' and 'Humjoli', in which Jeetendra had more dance numbers. His vigorous dancing in the films won him the epithet, 'Jumping Jack of Bollywood'. It was around this time that his movies 'Parichay' (1972) and Khushboo (1975) were released. Though his sensitivity in these films was acclaimed, Jeetendra realized that it was hard core commercial films that formed his forte. He came back with movies like 'Nagin' (1976), 'Dharam Veer' (1977) and 'Badalte Rishtey' and 'Swarg Narak' (1978). The early 1980s saw him starring in 'Apnapan', 'Judaai', 'Asha', 'Pyaasa Sawan', 'Maang Bharo Sajna' and 'Ek Hi Bhool'. He believed that it were the middle class values of his characters that appealed to the audience. In the 1980s, Jitendra was frequently paired up with Sridevi or Jayapradha for remakes of South Indian films by Rama Rao Tatineni, K. Bapayya and K. Raghavendra Rao; included Justice Chaudhry (1982), Mawaali (1983 ...
