How and where did Dharmendra and Hema Malini first meet?
Bollywood’s Dreamgirl Hema Malini acted in many best films in Hindi cinema and ruled crores of hearts. There was a time when not only fans but many big stars had lost their hearts on Hema’s beauty …
Bollywood superstars Dharmendra and Hema Malini first met in 1965 during the premiere of the film ‘Akash Mahal’. By then, Hema had released only one film, ‘Sapna Ka Saudagar’ which flopped and Dharmendra had become a star. In the first meeting, Dharmendra was attracted to Hema but he did not get any attention from Hema. After this Hema got a chance to work with Sanjeev Kumar in the film ‘Dhoop Chaon’. During the shooting of this film, Hema started liking Sanjeev Kumar.
However, due to some reason, the film could not be completed but the conversation between Sanjeev and Hema continued. Not only this, Sanjeev reached Hema’s house after getting married to Hema but Hema’s mother Jaya Chakraborty denied this marriage and said, ‘You are trying the wrong place, we have a boy for Hema in our community.
Here, Hema Malini’s heart was broken and on the other hand, Dharmendra’s entry into his life was done. Both were working in the film ‘Tum Hasin Main Jawaan’.
Dharmendra played such magic that Hema gave her his heart. Hema knew that Dharmendra was already married and also the father of two children, yet Hema was forced into the hands of the heart. However, at first Hema’s mother felt that Dharmendra and Hema could not be married, Dharmendra would only work to get Sanjeev Kumar out of Hema’s heart.
At that time, Hema was also working with Jeetendra in the film ‘Waris’ and Jeetendra had turned to Hema’s beauty. Not only this, Jeetendra had sent the marriage relationship directly to his mother without talking to Hema, while Jeetendra and Shobha Sippy were engaged. You will be surprised to know that Hema Malini’s family had also accepted Jeetendra’s relationship. Preparations for Hema’s secret marriage to Jeetendra were also started to separate Dharmendra and Hema.
Jeetendra and his family reached Madras with Pandit for marriage. At the same time, after much denial, Hema also agreed to this marriage. When Dharmendra came to know about this, his senses flew away and without delay, he told Shobha Sippy about this and went to Madras himself. Dharmendra and Shobha reached Madras and created a ruckus that Jeetendra and Hema’s marriage was halted and Dharmendra’s path was cleared.
