Hema Malini and Dharmendra are celebrating their 38th marriage anniversary today. They got married on May 2, 1980. To let you know Dharmendra in his 58 years longest film career gave 107 superhit films. But he won only 2 awards. Filmfare gave him an award for Best Talent in his initial years of the career. After that, he won Lifetime Achievement Award.
He got nominated for for 6 times for Filmfare best Actor award but he failed to win any. Dharmendra once revealed that to get an award in the film industry one needs to be clever. Even after giving over 100 hit films he never won Best Actor Award.
The He-man of India also said that,
“Our time was completely different. We used to work in the industry to show our talent and excellence as an actor. But today’s actors are doing films to earn money only. You need to learn how to grab an award and I never possessed that clever quality. We worked for entertaining people and not to get awards, films were our life but now everything has changed.”
Dharmendra is a superstar and a legendary actor of India. He has worked in more than 300 films including Sholay, Bandini, Tum Haseen Main Jawan, Chupke Chupke, Pooja Ke Phool, Kajal, Charas, Seeta Aur Geeta, Yaadon Ki Baarat etc.
