“Jumping Jack” is the most appropriate title given to Jeetendra who made the entire nation dance to his songs at the beginning of his career with films like ‘Farz', 'Waris', 'Humjoli' and 'Caravan'.
An evergreen star with one of the longest innings as a hero, Jeetendra worked in more than 200 films with almost 120 of them being superhits. Despite being called a non-actor by the critics, an unfazed Jeetendra vowed the audiences consistently with his style, energy and dances. He was not only the favourite of all heroines but also of filmmakers who made family dramas, especially from South India.

SCREEN LEGENDS Jeetendra Part 1 tells the story of ‘Jumping Jack’ Jeetendra and how he steered his way through films in the initial days.
