Noted actor 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.
Jitendra, 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.
