Dharam Hema love saga
Dancing queen Hema Malini set many a heart aflutter when she floated gracefully to complicated dance steps on the floor.

On being questioned who was the “original" dancer in Bollywood the dreamy eyed actress took the name of our very own Dharam Paa ji.

Years ago love crossed all boundaries for the duo when Dharam had taken the South Indian beauty as his second “lawfully wedded wife” besides having a wife and two sons tucked away at home .

Indian Idol 6
The couple had recently added a glittering snazz to the singing reality show “Indian Idol 6". When a contestant Amit had crooned Dharam’s classic song “Yamla Pagal Deewana“ Hema went into raptures.

Transported into the magical world of yesteryears, the actress admitted to have fallen in love with Dharmendra during the making of the song in Nasik. His signature dance step had her mesmerized and smitten with the “Yamla Jat”.

The 63-year-old South Indian beauty felt that “Dharam ji” is the original dancer of the Indian film industry and the rest of the stars just try to ape his style.

Hema’s comments proved that “Garam” Dharam still had the charm to pull at her heart strings and the passing years have kept the flames between the two ablaze. True Love is evergreen. Right, Hema ji?
