Shatrughan  Sinha has sportingly put in a  very special appearance in the forthcoming Yamla Pagla Deewana 3 with his buddy Dharmendra whom he calls one of his dearest friends. Says  Sinha,  “Not just Dharmendra, Hema (Mrs Dharmendra) is also a dear friend. Both Hema and Dharmendra  have been my friends for years.It is rare for a friendship to survive so long in this industry where loyalties change every Friday. All three of us have  worked together  in Dulal Guha’s excellent film Dost which I think was  released in 1974. This is one of  my favourite films. Also, Vijay Anand’s Blackmail in which Dharmendra and I were cast  together, that was  a special film.I think my wife Poonam has also worked in a film with Dharmendra.”

But Sinha says his relations with Dharamji and Hema go far beyond the professional. “We are  there for one another any time we need each other. Doing that small role in Yamla Pagla Deewana was  not something I had to think about. It was a yes even before  Dharmendra asked.” Incidentally, the duo is being seen on screen after 20 years! 

Shatruji calls Dharamji “God’s  personal  favourite”. “He is golden-hearted. Do you know we would have done Sholay together? But God and Ramesh Sippy had  other plans,” laughs Shatruji.

Incidentally Dharmendra and Hema are  expected to make  a guest appearance in Shatrughan Sinha’s family film featuring his son Luv Sinha which Umesh Shukla will direct, just as  Shatrughan Sinha has made an appearance in  Dharmendra’s family film Yamla Pagla Deewana 3 which stars the veteran actor with his two sons
