Today he is a legend of Indian cinema. Movies with his participation are adored by millions of people, including those outside the country. Yet everything could have turned out differently if in his youth he had followed the lead of his parents and given up on his dream.
This article will focus on the famous actor Dharam Singh Deol, who is better known to most viewers as Dharmendra.
The birth of a dream
The future conqueror of Bollywood was born on December 8, 1935 in the village of Nasrali. The family’s morals were strict. The father forbade the boy any form of entertainment outside the house. That also applied to watching movies. But at the age of 14, Dharmendra went to the cinema for the first time anyway. He was fascinated by what he saw on the screen.
From that moment on, the boy began to dream of becoming an actor. Dharmendra’s parents were shocked to hear that, since they got used to decide everything for him. But the young man was not going to back down.
A persistent movement towards the goal
Dharmendra entered the talent competition organized by the Filmfare magazine. Influential figures of Indian cinema noticed him there. Director Arjun Hingorani offered the aspiring actor a role in the film “Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere” for a very modest honorarium — 51 rupees and a daily breakfast (tea and toast).
Neither this nor many subsequent films brought major success to Dharmendra. But the actor continued to work hard, fighting the urge of quitting his job. Gradually he gained fame, and in 1966, the film “Phool Aur Patthar” made Dharmendra a real star.
As of today, the man is considered one of the most successful actors in the history of Indian cinema. He has more than 300 films to his credit. In addition, Dharmendra is a director, producer and also a politician.
Mastery in achieving the desired result
The actor accomplished many things because he stayed true to his dream. He could have listened to what his father wanted him to do. He could have been an ordinary worker who would not even dare to think of show business. But instead, he pursued his dream that motivated him to progress further, moving to the heights of fame.
