"Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir...All So Fabulous": Jeetendra

Now, this is an interview I am very proud of. Jeetendra ji is one of the biggest stars of Indian cinema and these days, he gives very few interviews. In the first part of this interview Jeetu ji (thats how most of the industry refers to him as) talks about his start in the industry with films like Navrang and Geet Gaya Paththaron Ne, how he made it big with a film like Farz, why he owes his career-n-success to V Shantaram ji, the phase in 1980s when he worked in South remakes like Tohfa, Mawali, Himmatwala that boasted of colourful garish costumes, dhinchak music, lots of pots n pans and fruits as props. Jeetu ji also talked about the alleged rivalry with Mr Bachchan and how he stayed away from being a part of the number's game. He also talks about the experience of working with item girls of 1980s like Disco Shanti and Silk Smitha. Hope you guys like it.
