Talking about the same, Hema Malini mentioned how difficult it was for Dharmendra with his political career, as he had to travel a lot, and people had a craze about a legendary film star like him contesting. Sharing more about the same, Hema Malini stated:

"Dharamji didn’t like it. He told me not to contest election as it’s a very difficult task. He said, ‘I have experienced that.’ So when he said that it’s difficult task, I thought let me take it as a challenge. He faced a problem because he had to travel a lot of distance but he still did a lot of work. But when you are a film star working in politics, people have a lot of craze about you and want to approach you and you can imagine the craze people had about Dharamji. So it used to trouble him. I also face such problems which Dharamji doesn’t like. Because I am a woman so I am able to manage properly.”
