Legendary actor Jitendra was one of the greatest actors of Bollywood. Jitendra acted in many films but his personal life was no less discussed. Jitendra’s most famous affair was with Hema Malini. The love story of the two reached the wedding pavilion but then something happened after which their marriage broke up forever. Hema has explained this in his biography Beyond the Dream Girl.
He has said that his parents did not want him to date married Dharmendra. On the other hand, Hema considered Jitendra a good friend but Jitendra had a soft corner for Hema. However, he was dating Shobha Kapoor at the time. Hema’s parents knew that Jitendra likes Hema, so they planned Jitendra and Hema’s wedding to get rid of Dharmendra. Hema and Jitendra’s family reached Chennai for a secret marriage. A newspaper got its information and it became front page news.
After reading this news, Dharmendra gets furious and takes Jeetendra’s girlfriend Shobha to the wedding pavilion. Being drunk, Dharmendra broke the marriage and died. Hema later married Dharmendra and Jitendra married Shobha Kapoor, who was then the air hostess at British Airways.
