Dharmendra and Hema Malini, India’s ‘Dream Girl,’ had a filmy love story. Before marrying Hema Malini, Dharmendra was married to Prakash Kaur.
They are separated by a 13-year age gap. Hema Malini nearly married Jeetendra once when a drunken Dharmendra crashed their wedding and married Hema! For the uninitiated, these two married in 1980.
How Hema Malini describes her marriage life with Dharmendra
Hema Malini described her marriage to Dharmendra as “another big event” in her life, adding that it had before been all about the arts. “I was born and raised in a household that placed a high value on the arts.
” I was devoted to dancing. My mum insisted that I pursue it at all times. Another significant event in my life was my marriage to Dharamji.” On Wednesday, Dharmendra will turn 85 years old.
“The nicest thing was that he never stopped me from working,” she said to Pinkvilla. Dharamji, too, adores performing regardless of the circumstances. His job is his passion, and he adores his supporters.
We appreciate each other’s work and have a great deal of mutual understanding. We’re tight, yet we each take our own way. We give each other space, which has strengthened our bond.”
When asked about Dharmendra’s “very emotional” personality, Hema Malini said, “Yes. He has a basic heart and is quite emotional. However, being a Libran, balance is my duty. At home, I am the balance component. I’m a realist. I can’t stay angry for long. Because, in the end, everything will pass.”
