Known as the ‘He-Man’ of Bollywood, Dharmendra is one of the most loved actors in the industry. The veteran actor celebrated his 88th birthday on 8th December and on this occasion, we recently stumbled upon an old interview of his wherein he shared his thoughts on the allure of Hollywood and why he believed that staying true to one’s roots is crucial in the entertainment industry. In an interview with Hindustan Times in 2017, the ‘Sholay’ actor said, ‘Everybody tries to make it big in the West but it has never looked worth it to me. You are the best in your home and your homeland with your people. When you are in India, you are the most loved person.’ He also added, ‘There is hardly a chance that you can get the same love from people anywhere else. If you get a chance and you get popular, then you get lost in that fame. Your career is not as successful anywhere as it is when you live in your own country with your own people.’ Dharmendra has a career span of several decades and is known for films like ‘Sholay’, ‘Chupke Chupke’, ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’, and ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’, among many others. He was recently seen in Karan Johar’s ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.’ For more news and updates, stay tuned to ETimes.
