How did Dharmendra get the picture 56 years ago?
Whenever the name of Bollywood’s he-man Dharmendra comes up, that picture and character come to mind. Which are still present in our minds. The year 2023 would surely have been one of the most wonderful years for the Deol family. Where father Dharmendra made headlines with his small role in ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’. So elder son Sunny Deol played Tara Singh and made a lot of money at the box office. The remaining task was completed by younger son Bobby Deol with ‘Animal’, when Abrar entered.
But Dharmendra’s words were different, I still remember that dialogue in ‘Phool Aur Patthar’ when he says – This world is very bad, peace, which gives something, gives it only after becoming bad. Dharmendra, who made his film debut in 1960 with ‘Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere’, got his next picture for a very strange reason. Which has been revealed after 56 years.
The strange reason due to which Dharmendra got the picture
This story is from the year 1968. When Ramanand Sagar’s picture ‘Aankhen’ was released in theatres. Dharmendra played the role of Sunil in this. It has been 56 years since the picture was released. Now Prem Sagar revealed why Dharmendra was cast in the film. In an interview, the director’s son told that at that time Dharmendra had done only one picture. At that time, the actor was offered the role not because of his acting, but because of his hands.

Actually, before ‘Aankhen’, Dharmendra had done one picture, that is ‘Shola Aur Shabnam’. To play the role of Sunil Mehra, some scenes with guns had to be given. In such a situation, the actor had long hands, hence he was selected for the picture. Today we hear that an actor is selected for a film after examining various things including acting, expressions, pauses etc. But this is the first time I have heard that someone has been selected because of his hands.
Miracle of Dharmendra’s two sons
These days, both Dharmendra’s sons Sunny and Bobby Deol are in the headlines. The reason for that is his upcoming projects. The time spent by both of them in 2023 with their respective pictures. Since then every fan is waiting for his next film. Recently there was a discussion that Sunny Deol is going to play Hanuman in Nitesh Tiwari’s ‘Ramayana’. Bobby Deol can be seen playing the role of Kumbhkaran. However, nothing like this is going to happen.
