Jeetu sent love notes to wife
Veteran actor Jeetendra (right) says he used to send love notes to his wife Shobha (far right) through telegrams. “I belong to an era where the first time I wanted to express myself to Shobha, who is my wife now, she was my girlfriend that time ... I sent her a telegram, ‘Love you’. And she sent me a telegram back, saying, ‘Fake’. I responded with, ‘No, really I love you a lot’. She said, ‘Double fake’. That was the type of communication at that time (sic),” the 73-year-old said at the launch of a mobile brand recently.
The actor, lovingly called Bollywood’s Jumping Jack, added: “Whenever questions like ‘Where were you? were asked, I would say, ‘I was in Film City for a film’. We used to have a gala time. Had there been mobiles back then, we would’ve been caught easily,” he said. In a lighter vein, Jeetendra said: I only keep those Whatsapp messages which Shobha can read, and remove all the other messages.”
