Hema Malini will always be the Dream Girl, a moniker she earned after working in a movie of the same name. Her pairing with real life hubby Dharamendra were the stuff movie legends are made of. And time has done nothing to change the ardour. Recently, Hemaji, who is also a politician now, posted some pictures of herself with Dharamendra taken during their recently holiday together and they look just as adorable as they used to in movies like Sholay, Charas Tum Haseen Main Jawan etc – classics from the past!
The love story of Hema and Dharam is perhaps one of the most charming stories of Bollywood. The couple met on the sets of a movie (Tum Haseen Main Jawan) and it wasn’t long before Cupid struck. It was said that so smitten was Dharamendra by Hema that during the shoot of Sholay, he actually bribed the light boys, asking them to disturb the lights on the set so that they could go for continuous retakes and he would get a chance to hold her!
Initially Hema, it is said, didn’t reciprocate Dharamendra’s affections since he was already married but soon she fell in love with him. The duo then got married, despite severe opposition from their families. Things were complicated because of his marital status but their love strong enough to overcome the barriers. Years passed and they continued to rule as the power couple of Bollywood. Hema then took to politics though she has never given up her first love – classical dance while Dharamendra is rarely seen in public life. These pics are therefore, a refreshing reminder of their chemistry!
Hema tweeted, “Hope you like the photos of Dharamji and me taken during a recent holiday together.” Of course we do Hemaji!
