Throwback! When Hema Malini opened up on her ‘family’s opposition’ to her marriage with Dharmendra | Hindi Movie News – Bollywood – Times of India


Veteran actors Hema Malini and Dharmendra are one of the most adorable couples in B-town. Both the actors first met in the year 1970, while shooting for the film ‘Tum Haseen Main Jawan’ and fell in love with each other. After five years, in 1980, they got married and since then they have been living a happy married life. However, the couple faced many difficulties in getting married because othe actress’s family was against this marriage as the veteran actor was already married at that time to Prakash Kaur who did not want a divorce. Back in the year 1999, Hema Malini, in a chat show opened up on the same and spoke about all the issues she faced in getting married to the actor. She said, ‘Naturally, no parents would like me to marry… This kind of marriage. But it was difficult to decide any other thing for me… I was quite close to him, we were together for so long. And to suddenly think of somebody else to marry, I don’t think it is right. So I called him and I said, ‘You’ll have to marry me now’. He said, ‘Yeah, I’ll marry you’. So that is how it happened.’ Well, Dharmendra even converted to Islam so that he could marry Hema Malini and be allowed to have two wives. She also revealed that initially, she had no intentions of getting married to him as she said, ‘I never bothered in the beginning, not at all. Anyone can say that he’s a very good-looking man, doesn’t mean you have to marry that person. So I continued working with him, but not at all with any intention that I’m going to marry this person. Somewhere I used to think, if at all I have to marry, I will marry somebody like him. Not him, definitely not. But it happened, so you can’t help it.’
