The father-daughter duo also revealed some secrets on the show, where Ekta revealed that he was “very possessive” of his father as a child and was not allowed on his film sets. Read on for the scoop below.
Jeetendra was a huge superstar in her day and has ruled the hearts of millions for decades.
Ekta Kapoor told Kapil Sharma: “He was very possessive of Dad. Main papa ko kisi ke saath shooting karne nahi deti thi (he used to not let him shoot anyone). “Ekta added that she would become ‘jealous’ of her father Jeetendra’s actresses and ‘attack their heroines.’
Ekta Kapoor further added: “They used to not let me go to their set because I could attack their heroines. I was so jealous, ki mere papa ke saath koi kaam nahi karega. The mere father ke saath koi baat kare mujhe bilkul achcha nahi lagta tha (that no one should work with my father. Even if someone else talked to my father, I didn’t like it at all). “
In the past, Jeetendra was a huge superstar and has made some amazing movies like Farz (1967), Nagin (1976), Dharam Veer (1977), Himmatwala (1983) Tohfa (1984) and Thanedaar (1990).
The veteran actor was known for his energy and great dance moves.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Jeetendra on the big screen, but she made her last digital debut with her daughter Ekta Kapoor’s ALTBalaji series, Baarish.
Speaking of coming back after a long time, Jeetendra told PTI: “It felt great to be back on screen. I wanted to discover and experience the style of this medium. From the beginning, I’ve been a friend to the camera, so getting back in front of the camera was easy. It took me a while to get familiar with the high-tech working methods, but once I got the chart, it was easy. “
