Aruna Irani has appeared in more than 500 movies in the Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, and Gujarati film industries.

Aruna Irani talked about extramarital affairs and mentioned Hema Malini-Dharmendra

Aruna Irani recently divulged a lot of personal information in an ANI podcast with Smita Prakash. According to Aruna, first wives frequently hold the women responsible with whom their husbands have affairs. However, husbands are the ones who make the vows of loyalty, and they ought to be the ones who must be considered accountable when they break those vows. She further pointed out that even Hema Malini did not marry Dharmendra to break any family. She said:

“You see, these wives, they always blame the ‘other woman’. But think! See, I am not responsible to keep you happy. Your husband is responsible. Hold him (accountable) first. Ask him, ‘Why did you do this?’ Tell them no? I did not have an affair with the intention to break a home. Like Hema Malini, if she married Dharmendra, she didn’t want to break any family. Marriage has no security, only love has security. It’s just a paper so you can boldly say that yes, he is my husband, she is my wife. Otherwise, it has no value. Where love ends, marriage ends.”

 “See it is not easy for a person to get married to a married man. For instance, if something happens to my child at midnight, I can't call my husband. That's why I never wanted a child. I knew I would never give that sorrow to my child.”
