Jeetendra’s personal life

Jeetendra and his wife, Shobha, first met when she was just 14 years old. During Jeetendra's early years in the film industry from 1960 to 1966, he was in a relationship with Shobha, who remained his girlfriend until 1972. They decided to get married after the release of the film Bidaai on October 18, 1974 and had a simple ceremony at Janki Kutir with only a few family members and friends present. Jeetendra and Shobha have two children from their marriage. Their daughter, Ekta Kapoor, is the head of Balaji Telefilms, and their son, Tusshar Kapoor, is an actor.
