There are some friendships that transcend time and become immortal. Legendary actor Jeetendra and veteran producer Anand Pandit share that special and unique a bond. As the iconic actor rings in his 78th birthday, his friend Anand Pandit who never loses an opportunity to praise his mentor, reminisces about a friendship that is nearly 25 years old.  

Little did Pandit realise that the actor he watched in the 70s and 80s would turn out to be the one who would prompt his foray into the film industry.

“25 years ago, I landed in Mumbai with an empty wallet and a heart full of dreams. I was a nobody. That is when Jeetuji came into my life. His life lessons, his everyday advice and his large heart is what helped me to survive and eventually thrive. It is hard to put into words how Jeetuji helped me navigate through life's biggest challenges. He has been an unbelievable support system."

Pandit says the actor is not just ageless but a yaaron ka yaar, “He is one of those people who won’t question you even if you call him in the middle of the night - yes, he is my 3 AM friend. And will welcome you with a smile and hug no matter what time of the day. What I owe him is intangible."

The inspiring 78-year-old Jeetendra has to his credit done close to 250 films and has contributed to the industry for over four decades. He continues to make a defining difference in Bollywood as the chairman of Balaji Films.

Anand Pandit, often called the man with the Midas touch, is not just a successful producer but a formidable force in the real estate sector. His high end, luxury real estate company, Lotus Developers has developed state-of-the-art residences for the who's who of Bollywood.

Anand Pandit has collaborated and produced some iconic films under the banner Anand Pandit Motion Pictures. Interestingly he is working with both the Bachchans currently - with Big B in "Chehre" and Junior Bachchan in "The Big Bull" both set to release later this year.
