Today actors just do one film a year: Jeetendra

The 71-year-old, who claims to have featured in about 200 films, was honoured with a tile of his hand impression here Wednesday. It will be placed at the UTV Walk of the Stars here. Talking about his journey, he said: ‘I am from a very middle-class background and I found security in taking on more and more work and I just didn’t want to say no to any thing. Those days we used to sign 30 to 40 films and we never knew when will a film get over.’

‘Sometimes we used to shoot from 7 am to 1 pm and then again from 2 pm to 5 pm. If somehow the third shift got cancelled, we used to become insecure,’ he added. Jeetendra, says ‘today’s time is different’. Actors do one film in a year, choose it carefully and if they start, they end it first.’
