Mumbai: Yesteryears' legendary actor Jeetendra, also known as the Jumping Jack of Bollywood, has been chosen for the Dada Saheb Phalke award this year.


At a press conference, Jeetendra spoke about the importance of the award and how he feels at being the chosen one.

"I am happy that I have been chosen for this award and thank everyone who thought of my name,” he added.
