For the uninitiated, Sanjeev Kumar had remained unmarried throughout his life and had passed away as a bachelor. Even after so many years, it's still incredibly difficult to digest the fact that a person with such a golden heart had gone through a painful love tragedy in terms of his personal life. In 1973, Sanjeev Kumar had fallen in love with one of the most gorgeous and incredibly talented actresses of her generation, Hema Malini. The actor had proposed her for marriage, but the actress had denied his proposal.
While for Hema Malini, it had passed away after some time, it had become an unbearable pain for Sanjeev Kapoor. Later in his career, Sanjeev ji's name was linked with a lot of actresses of his films, but they were all rumours, and at that point, people had started realising that Sanjeev ji is going to remain single for the rest of his life. Many actresses had fallen in love with Sanjeev Kumar's charisma and talent, but with time, everyone had moved on after getting no response from Sanjeev's side.

However, it was the year, 1975, when Sanjeev ji's name had begun to link with his co-actress, Sulakshana Pandit. The chemistry between the two had received a lot of praise from the audience. While Sulakshana ji was already head-over-heels in love with Sanjeev ji, everyone had started anticipating that Sanjeev was also in love with the gorgeous actress. But even that didn't materialise, and despite continuous approaches from Sulakshana ji, Sanjeev ji had remained unmarried throughout his life. After Sanjeev ji's demise, Sulakshana ji had decided to stay single for the rest of her life, and that's how their beautiful love story had remained incomplete.
