Ace Bollywood stars and real-life partners Dharmendra and Hema Malini’s love story is no less than a romantic Hindi movie. When Hema Malini had spread her charm all over the nation with her acting, smile, and looks, Dharmendra fell for her. Hema ji was reluctant to involve her with Dharmendra ji as he was a married man. Dharmendra married in the year 1957 for the first time, and he had four children from that marriage. The 70’s period saw their love story to take shape amid many odds and then they finally decided to tie the knot.
A long time has passed since then, but the old pictures easily take us back to those golden times. An unseen picture of their wedding ceremony has come out now. Hema Malini and Dharmendra are seen performing a wedding ritual in the picture while they both are wearing jaimala. Though the picture is black and white, the color is evident on the two happy faces.
The couple is married for about 40 years now. Talking about her feelings at the initial stage of their relationship, Hema Malini told that she was careful about not hurting anyone with this relationship. She didn’t want to intrude in a family man’s life. She never did any such thing to take her husband away from his children and first wife.
The Dream Girl had proudly stated, “The minute I saw Dharam ji, I knew he was the man for me. I wanted to spend my life with him. I also wanted to make sure that the marriage hurt nobody. His first wife and children have never felt my intrusion in their lives. I married him, but I never took him away from his first family.”
Hema’s family was also against this relationship, as it is known. After her parents gave it a nod, the actor wasn’t getting separated from his first wife. Then he converted to Islam to marry Hema without getting separated from his first wife.
