Jeetu sent love notes to wife

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

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.”
