One of the legendary couples, Dharmendra ji and Hema Malini ji have been giving some serious relationship goals ever since they had fallen in love and tied the knot. Even after being married for almost 40 years today, their love for each other is as fresh as a newlywedded duo. The couple’s marriage had taken place at Hema ji's brother's house and it was a quiet and traditional Tamilian wedding. And this is how the two had always wanted their nuptial to be!
It is also to be mentioned here that Hema Malini is Dharmendra’s second wife and his first wife is Prakash Kaur to whom he had married before entering the showbiz world. Though Hema and Prakash had met at several occasions prior to the former’s marriage with Dharam ji after their wedding, their paths never crossed.

Recently, on July 13, 2019, Hema Malini (being a BJP member) had participated in 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' campaign in the Parliament premises along with Anurag Thakur, who happens to a member of the Lower House of Parliament in India from Hamirpur in Himachal Pradesh. A video of her cleaning the lane with a broom in her hand went viral in no time and soon, she was even hit by the trolls on social media. Take a look here:

Yesterday, on July 14, 2019, when Dharam ji shared a video with a buffalo and its calf, a user commented about Hema Malini’s broom video by asking him, "Sir, madam ne actually kabhi zindagi mein jhaadoo uthayi kya?" To which the witty and honest guy Dharam ji replied, "Haan films main, mujhe bhi anaadi lag rahi thi. Maine magar bachpan mein, apni maa ka hamesha haath bataya hai. Mai jhaadoo mein maahir tha. I love cleanliness." Checkout:
In an interaction with a leading daily some time back, Hema ji was asked about her equation with stepsons, Sunny and Bobby. She was quoted as saying, “Everyone wonders what kind of a relationship we (Sunny and I) are having. It is very beautiful and cordial. Whenever it is necessary he (Sunny) is always there, along with Dharamji, especially when this accident happened (sic).” (Also Read: 'Kundali Bhagya' Fame Ruhi Chaturvedi Will Soon Get Engaged To Beau, Shivendraa Om Saainiyol)
Further, in the same interview, Hema Malini had also quoted an instance when it was Sunny who rushed to her when she broke her nose in an accident in 2015 in Rajasthan. Hema ji had then stated, “He (Sunny) was the first person to come and see me at home and he saw that the right doctor is there for the stitches that were done on my face. I was really taken aback to see him showing so much interest. That shows what kind of a relationship we are having.”
In an interaction with a leading daily once, Hema Malini had once talked about Dharam ji's support when she had bought a flat in Mumbai, which turned out to be haunted. She had retorted, “Every night I would feel someone was trying to choke me; I used to have difficulty breathing. I would sleep with my mummy and she noticed how restless I used to be. If this had happened only once or twice we would have ignored it, but it happened every night.”
She had further gone to add, “That's when we decided to buy our own apartment. Actor Biswajit Chatterjee became my neighbour. I converted the garage into my dance rehearsal hall. I remember Dharamji would drop by for coffee, but back then I had no idea I would fall in love and get married to him.” (Checkout: Sameera Reddy's Newborn Baby Girl Cuddled In Her Arms In Latest Picture Speaks Volumes Of Love)
In the same interview, she reminisced about Dharm ji’s father, Kewal Krishan Singh Deol, who was extremely fond of her and her family. She fondly remembered, “He would drop by and meet my father or brother for chai. Instead of shaking hands he would arm-wrestle them, and after defeating them he would jokingly say, 'Tum log ghee-makkhan-lassi khao, idli aur sambhar se taqat nahi aati (Have butter, lassi, ghee. Idli and sambhar won't make you strong).”
Adding further, she had said, “My father would join in the laughter. He (Dharmendra's father) was a very jovial person. Dharamji's mother Satwant Kaur was equally warm and kind-hearted. I remember how she came to meet me once at a dubbing studio in Juhu, after I had conceived Esha. She hadn't informed anyone in the house. I touched her feet, she hugged me and said, "Beta, khush raho hamesha (Be happy always)." I was happy that they were happy with me.” (Don't Miss: Pooja Batra Confirms Her 'Arya Samaj' Wedding With Nawab Shah, Reveals How Love Brewed Between Them)
Talking about how much she misses her childhood days, Hema Malini had once shared, "Yes, I used to miss my childhood, but I did get a chance to relive it through Esha and Ahaana. Now that they are becoming mothers, I will get yet another chance to relive my childhood, this time as grandmother! God has been kind to me, so I really should not be sitting and complaining.”
