COVID-19 has taken a toll on otherwise inseparable couples. Hema Malini and Dharmendra, the legendary duo, have been separated for over a year. Dharamji locked himself away in his farmhouse outside Mumbai, far from the madding crowd, as soon as COVID-19 reared.

The ‘Sholay’ actress, Hema said, “It is best for his safety. Right now we would rather think about his health than about spending time together. We are going through the worst crisis that mankind has faced in a hundred years. If we must save civilization we must be strong, even if it means making big sacrifices.”

Hema’s latest film was ‘Shimla Mirchi’ (2020), starring Rajkummar Rao and Rakul Preet Singh.

The “He-Man” of Indian cinema, Dharmendra was last seen in ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana Phirse.’ He will soon be seen in ‘Apne 2’ which is expected to be released around Diwali 2021.
