Actor Jeetendra is known for his distinct style and acting in Hindi cinema. She has won a lot of audience hearts by dancing in different style in many Bollywood films. Jeetendra was born on 7 April 1942 in Amritsar, Punjab. Jitendra's real name is Ravi Kapoor. He is the father of Bollywood's famous actor Tusshar Kapoor and producer-director Ekta Kapoor.

Shortly after Jeetendra's birth, his family settled in a chawl in Girgaon, Mumbai. The name of this chawl was 'Shyam Sadam Chawl'. He spent nearly 20 years of his life in this chawl. Jeetendra started his career in Bollywood with the film 'Navrang' released in 1959. He had a very small role in this film. After this, Jeetendra had to struggle in the film industry for a long time.
