Jeetendra: Hrithik Roshan is a very good dancer!

Here’s the Jumping Jack of Bollywood in a tell-all mood!

Jeetendra is all praise for contemporary cinema but will return to the silver screen only if his daughter and producer Ekta Kapoor asks him to. “I do follow today’s cinema and I enjoy watching all type of films. I think this is the best period in cinema as all the good films are accepted. If their contents are good, films of stars as well non-stars are doing well at box office. Earlier, it was not like that… We had masala and revenge films but today, there is an audience for every film,” Jeetendra told in an interview. However, the veteran actor is in no mood to face the camera again except when his daughter Ekta offers him a role. “I decided 18-20 years ago that I will not go to studio again. Earlier, when I was working actively I used to be in studios for 12 hours. And then I thought of seeing the other side of life. But Ekta wanted to come back into this, Tusshar also came in the industry. Eventually, I also got dragged into it,” the actor said.

Jeetendra, 71, said he had worked in a television serial for Ekta. “Whatever Ekta tells me to do I will do it otherwise I am not interested,” he added. Walking down the memory lane, Jeetendra said when he was a kid he used to hear that Cuckoo (Anglo-Indian dancer Cuckoo Moray) was a great dancer. “But when I entered the film industry and started dancing, I was surprised (to find out) how doing dance moves in a particular position is considered terrific!.” Jeetendra, once known as “jumping jack” of Bollywood, said by today’s standards he is Cuckoo the dancer. “Going by today’s time, I think I am Cuckoo. Things have changed a lot today. Earlier, lyrics were nice and there was depth and meaning in them. Today’s lyrics are different as emphasis is more on rhythm and beats,” the actor added.

Jeetendra said Hrithik Roshan is the best dancer and also a handsome one. “I think Hrithik is a very good dancer. He is a person with a lot of rhythm in his body,” the actor added.
