Funny Story of Dharmendra, Hema Malini and Hema Malini’s father

In 1975, during the outdoor shooting of Ramanand Sagar’s Charas (1976), we were to be in Malta for weeks. And since I (Hema) was to be shooting with him (Dharmendra), my father insisted on coming along with me. Often, the cast and crew had to travel together in a car. My father was not happy with this at all. He would order me in Tamil – so that Dharam-ji would not understand what he was saying – to sit in one corner while he would try and sit in the middle. But Dharam-ji would make up some clever excuse or the other to get in from my side, so that I would end up sitting in the middle and he would be beside me!

Motivational Story – This is what Dharmendra told Moushumi Chatterjee before signing her for ‘Ghayal’

I remember when Dharamji (Dharmendra) came to sign me for Ghayal and I told him, ‘Why don’t you take someone else?’ He said, ‘No one in your generation has the innocence you have.’
