Today is birthday of bollywood film actor, director & producer Jitendra. Jitendra is father of Bollywood Actor Tushar Kapoor and famous Producer Ekta Kapoor.
Jeetendra's active acting career spanned the 1960s to the 1990s. Jeetendra was frequently paired with Sridevi or Jaya Pradha for remakes of South Indian films by Rama Rao Tatineni, K. Bapayya and K. Raghavendra Rao; these included Justice Chaudhry (1982), Mawaali (1983), Himmatwala (1983), Jaani Dushman, and Tohfa (1984). He also did many Telugu remakes in Hindi of Krishna's movies and had very close association with him.
Besides these south indian remakes, there was a subdued side of Jeetendra whenever he'd worked with the writer/lyricist Gulzar in films like Parichay, Kinara (1977 film) and Khushboo (1975 film) that had several beautifully penned songs like 'O Majhi Re', 'Musafir Hoon Yaaron', and 'Naam Gum Jaayega', composed by Rahul Dev Burman and sung by Kishore Kumar.
He appeared in the TV serial Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi in the role of an old man. He was one of the judges of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa (Indian Dance Series), an Indian dance competition on Sony Entertainment Television. He was also a judge with Hema Malini of a competition called Dancing Queen.
