The 70s brought them closer

Hema and Dharmendra came together for the first time in the 1970 release, Sharafat. And though they worked in a couple of other movies together, one of their most fondly remembered movies is Seeta Aur Geeta that was released in 1972. After the success of this flick, producer would line up at their gates to sign them up together; and we as audience got Raja Jani, Jugnu, Pratigya and the iconic Sholay.

Hema-Dharam: Not an ideal love story, a love-story nonetheless.

Not all love stories are perfect, some come with their set of imperfections. But as they say, the blemishes add to the beauty of the moon.

Dharmendra and Hema Malini had an odd love-story; the morality of their love was often put to questions. There were eye-rolling, eye-brow raisings, and a considerable amount of oppositions.

But, it survived.
