WITH HEMA MALINI
The dream girl Hema Malini blessed with an eye pleasing supernormal beauty,born in a simple Iyengar family became the second legal wife of the handsome he-man Dharmendra on 2nd May,1980.They were said to have a long time affair which later on converted into marriage.The gossips of their affair started during the shooting of the blockbuster film 'Sholay'.In the beginning,Hema didn't pay any attention to Dharam but as Dharam was stubborn by his nature,he made every possible attempt to grasp a special place in her heart.For this,he paid Rs.20 each time to the light boys on the set of 'Sholay' who were actually asked to disturb the scene in which Dharam was teaching Hema how to try a revolver.By applying this trick,he hugged Hema so many times during that particular scene.In this way,they came closer to each other and finally decided to get married.She also received Proposals from actor Sanjeev and Jeetendra severally.But she refused to both of them.While Hema's parents got to know about her marriage with Dharmendra,they were strongly against it as he was already married.They were forcing Hema to marry with Jeetendra.At one stage,Hema almost made up her mind to marry with Jeetendra to make her parents happy but after all,true love showed its genuine colour and both Hema and Dharmendra got coloured with wedding shades.Before the wedding,both got converted in to Islam as his first wife was not giving him divorce.Their converted name was Delawar Khan and Aisha Bi R.Chakravarty respectively.Their marriage was announced a few weeks later after they tied the knot.From Hema,Dharam has two daughters,actress Esha Deol and Ahana Deol.During the wedding,Hema had also to face opposes from Dharam's sons Sunny and Bobby.
Before falling in love with Hema ,Dharam was said to have madly in love with attractive and very talented actress Meena Kumari.It has been rumoured that Dharmendra's love for Meena was fake.Actually,he was only using Meena for making his career in film industry because at that time,Meena was much more established as an actress.And this rumour proved true when Dharamendra left Meena after getting huge sucess and money in films.Then Meena repented on her mistakes which she had done for Dharam.Actually,before the entrance of Dharam in her life she also fell in love with writer director Kamaal Amrohi and she married with him in 1952.They were leading a very happy life but Dharam came in between due to which Kamaal gave divorce to her in 1964.Now,she was a looser from both sides as she had been dumped by both men in her life.She could not tolerate this grief and got completely drowned in wine and alcohol.She became a heavy drinker during the later part of her life and due to excessive intake of liquor,her liver failed completely and she died on 31st March,1972 in a hospital in Mumbai at 40 years only.Very few people knows that Dharmendra was the actual reason for her death.
