Jeetendra has been one evergreen star who has worked in more than 100 films as a solo hero. He never shied away from working in heroine-oriented films and family dramas. No wonder he formed a hit pair with several top heroines of the day like Mumtaz, Hema Malini, Rekha, Reena Roy, Moushumi Chatterjee, Neetu Singh, Sridevi and Jaya Prada.
When his critics labelled him a ‘dancing’ star, he proved them wrong by doing ‘Parichay’, ‘Khushboo’ and ‘Kinara’ with director Gulzar. At the same time he continued his association with South Indian filmmakers which reached a new high with ‘Himmatwala’ in 1983. The film was a roaring success and Jeetendra stayed for long spells of time either in Chennai or Hyderabad doing several hit films till 1989. He also came to be known as the ‘No. 1’ Star of the box-office then.
On the personal front, Jeetendra was already in love with Shobha for several years but there came a time when he was about to get married to Dream-Girl Hema Malini. What happened actually?
