Dharmendra is currently in the limelight for a kiss scene he had with Shabana Azmi, who mostly lives with his ex-wife Prakash Kaur and their children. His second wife Hema Malini opened up about her relationship with him just days ago and explained why she doesn’t live with him despite their marriage. Although Hema Malini was happy with her marriage to Dharmendra, her parents initially did not support their daughter’s love for the ‘Sholay’ actor as he was previously married to Prakash Kaur. Hema Malini had no complaints about Dharmendra remarrying Dream Girl without divorcing Prakash Kaur despite their 43-year marriage. Dharmendra currently lives with his ex-wife and her family.
Hema Malini reveals why she stays away from Dharmendra.
In an interview with “Laherin”, Hema Malini discussed her relationship with Dharmendra and explained why she stays away from him. According to her, no one wants this to happen, but one has to accept that it happens and move on. If not, it will be impossible to sense how one wishes to live one’s life. Every woman wants a husband and children, like a normal family, but sometimes things don’t go according to plan. Hema Malini, 74, continues: “I don’t feel terrible about it. I feel good about myself. I raised my two grown children well. Dharmendra was of course present throughout.
Hema Malini was about to marry Jeetendra.
Few people are aware of the fact that Hema’s mother, Jaya Chakraborty, convinced her daughter to marry Jeetendra; Hema Malini mentions this in her biography Hema Malini: Beyond the Dream Girl. Although Hema and Jeetendra’s parents had traveled to Chennai for their secret wedding, the information was leaked and revealed in a nearby newspaper. Dharmendra arrived in Chennai along with Jeetendra’s then girlfriend, Shobha, who is now married. The couple met in person and their marriage was dissolved.
Dharmendra has six children.
On 2 May 1980, Hema and Dharmendra got married against strong opposition. The couple has two daughters, Isha Deol and Ahana Deol, as of now. Dharmendra, who is 87 years old, has four children from his first marriage to Prakash Kaur, popularly known as Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Vijaya Deol and Ajeita Deol.
