Bollywood’s own he-man, the handsome hero of all times, Dharmendra turned 83 on December 8 and he can’t stop being grateful for the gift of life. “There are ailments now and then. But touch wood, I am fine otherwise. It is all because of the love of my friends and fans. They’ve kept me going all these years.  Otherwise, what am I? Just an ordinary mortal. I never thought I’d become an actor. When I did, I never thought I’d be successful. But I was. Then I thought it’d be short-lived. But I am still here, surrounded by caring fans, children, family, and friends.”

According to the reports, Dharmendra elder son Sunny Deol now plans to make a film and a book on his father.

 

A shy Dharmendra says, “My children love me. They are always telling me that my story needs to be told to the world. I’ve toyed with the idea of writing my biography. But something holds me back. There are many incidents and episodes in one’s life that are not meant for public consumption.”

Ask him for any birthday wishes and he says, “Yes, to see this world freed of violence and stress. Everyone should get the same love that I have been fortunate enough to get in my lifetime.”
