Jeetendra Biography

Ravi Kapoor was born in a business family that dealt with imitation jewelery. While supplying jewelry to V. Shantaram, he was cast as Sandhya's double in the 1959 movie 'Navrang'.His first break as a Bollywood leading man came in 'Geet Gaya Patharon Ne'. Although Ravi Kapoor was born on April 7, 1942, Jeetendra birth's took place in 1964.Ravi had met his present wife, Shobha, when she was only 14. She completed school, went to college, and was employed as an Air Hostess with British Airways. It was not until the release of 'Bidaai" (opposite Leena Chandavarkar) on October 18, 1974, that Jeetendra and Shobha decided to get married, which they did in a simple ceremony on at Janki Kutir with only a few family and friends present (Gulzar, and Sanjeev Kumar amongst the noted celebrities). The marriage was arranged hastily, as even Shobha's mom, who was in Japan at that time, could not attend.Shobha gave birth to a daughter, Ekta, and subsequently to a son, Tusshar. While Ekta became a producer of TV serials, mostly starting with 'K', Tusshar followed in his dad's footsteps. Ekta and Ravi run a production company by the name of Balaji Films, and have produced 5 Bollywood movies, 2 of which have Tusshar in the lead role. Their TV productions are usually in Hindi or Tamil languages.Jeetendra, known for his t-shirt suit, and white shoes, nicknamed 'jumping jack', starred in over 200 movies, spanning from 1959 to 2005 'Ho Jaata Hai Pyaar'. He made a guest appearance in a TV serial 'Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thee'.Jeetendra has acted opposite Mumtaz, Jaya Pradha, Sridevi, Komal, Hema Malini, Babita, Jaya Bhaduri, Reena Roy, Saira Banu, Rekha, Neetu Singh, Moushumi Chatterjee, Bhanupriya, Madhavi, Anita Raaj.Whether running around trees, singing songs, or playing serious characters (Parichay, Khushboo, Dulhan), Jeetendra has always proved himself as an excellent actor, a family man, whose marriage is still intact, and someone who has yet to be involved in any controversy. Many feel that the era of the tall, handsome, idealistic heroes (Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, etc.) is an era that will forever remain etched in people's memories.

Jeetendra Trivia

Father of actor Tusshar Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor, the head of Balaji Telefilms, India's number one television production house.

He is the only Indian actor to have appeared as a hero in nearly 200 films, repeatedly costarring with the biggest heroines of his time: Rekha, Hema Malini, Sridevi, and Jayapradha.

He got his first major break when film-maker Shantaram cast him as the hero in Geet Gaaya Pattharonne (1964). The actor jumped into the spotlight with Farz (1967), and his vigorous dancing in subsequent films like Caravan (1971) and Humjoli (1970) won him the epithet "Jumping Jack".
