Ravi Kapoor, also known as Jeetendra (Born April 7, 1942) is an award winning Indian actor, television, films producer and chairman of the Balaji Telefilms, Balaji Motion Pictures and ALT Entertainment. Famous for his dancing, he was awarded Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003 and Screen Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. 


Jeetendra Kapoor was born on 7 April 1942 in Amritsar, Punjab to Amarnath and Krishna Kapoor whose business dealt with imitation jewellery.[citation needed] He attended St. Sebastian’s Goan High School in Girgaum, with his friend Rajesh Khanna and later on went to K.C. College. While supplying jewellery to V. Shantaram, he was cast as Sandhya's double in the 1959 movie "Navrang".
Jeetendra's active acting career spanned the 1960s to the 1990s. Jeetendra was frequently paired with Sridevi or Jaya Pradha for remakes of South Indian films by Rama Rao Tatineni, K. Bapayya and K. Raghavendra Rao; these included Sanjog, Aulad, Majaal, Justice Chaudhry (1982), Mawaali (1983), Himmatwala (1983), Jaani Dushman, and Tohfa (1984). He also did many Telugu remakes in Hindi of Krishna's movies and had very close association with him.
Besides these south indian remakes, there was a subdued side of Jeetendra whenever he'd worked with the writer/lyricist Gulzar in films like Parichay, Kinara (1977 film) and Khushboo (1975 film) that had several beautifully penned songs like 'O Majhi Re', 'Musafir Hoon Yaaron', and 'Naam Gum Jaayega', composed by Rahul Dev Burman and sung by Kishore Kumar.
Besides his frequent pairings with Sridevi and Jayapradha during the 80's, Jeetendra's popular co-stars were Reena Roy, Neetu Singh, Hema Malini, Sulakshna Pandit, Bindiya Goswami,Moushmi Chatterjee, and Rekha.
He appeared in the TV serial Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi in the role of an old man. He was one of the judges of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa (Indian Dance Series), an Indian dance competition on Sony Entertainment Television.  He was also a judge with Hema Malini of a competition called Dancing Queen.
In her authorized biography, Hema Malini claimed that they almost got married, but she backed out. He married his childhood sweetheart, Shobha Kapoor, and has a daughter, Ekta Kapoor, who runs Balaji Telefilms and a son who is also an actor, Tusshar Kapoor.
Jeetendra made a brief appearance in one of his daughter's produced films Kucch To Hai (2002) where he appeared alongside his son Tusshar.
