Veteran actress and politician Hema Malini, who turned a year older on October 16, says love is a very beautiful feeling, and she learnt to express the emotion because of veteran actor and her husband Dharmendra.
The actress spoke on her relationship during a chit-chat on a private radio station. Asked about her memorable phone call, she said: “It was when Dharamji called me and said I love you.”
“Back in those days, it was very difficult as there used to be landline phones and you had to find a proper place to speak over the phone. Romance is a very beautiful feeling. I could express the feeling of love only because of Dharamji,” she added.
The actress continued: “It is not like you can express this to anyone. A lot of people might love you, but you can only reciprocate to the one who you truly love and that’s how it has been between us. It never happened with anyone else.”
The couple worked together in films like “Seeta Aur Geeta”, “Sholay” and “Dream Girl”, they got married in 1980. For those who don’t know, Dharmendra was already a married man when he fell for Hindi Cinema’s Dream Girl.
