Veteran actor Jeetendra has opened up on parenting. Seeing his two children, Tusshar Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor, handling the responsibilities of being single parents has made him rethink everything. In a conversation with Hindustan Times, he even said that he feels like a bad father. Jeetendra opened up, “When my children were young, I was very busy all around shooting in three shifts a day running here and there, travelling because in our time we used to be very insecure, we used to do a lot of movie all at once, so there was hardly any time for the children which I feel very bad about today, that was a way of life and my family understood,” Ekta Kapoor Wishes Papa Jeetendra On His 78th Birthday With An Adorable Video!
The Himmatwala actor added, “Now, especially during the lockdown, when I watch them and how they are devoting time to their children, I have realised that they are wonderful parents despite being single parents. I feel I was such a bad father. But I am 79 and learning so much from them.” Jeetendra to Make Digital Debut in Daughter Ekta Kapoor’s ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s Show ‘Baarish’.
