Bollywood’s most handsome hero of all times turned 83 on December 8.
And the ever-affable actor cannot stop being grateful for the gift of life. “There are ailments now and then. But touchwood, I am fine otherwise. It is all because of the love of my friends and fans. They’ve kept me going all these years. Otherwise what am I? An ordinary mortal. I never thought I’d become an actor.When I did, I never thought I’d be successful. But I was . Then I thought it’d be short-lived. But I am still here, surrounded by caring fans, children, family and friends.”
According to reports Dharamji’s elder son Sunny Deol now plans a film and a book on his father.
Shy as ever Dharamji says, “My children love me. They are always telling me that my story needs to be told to the world. I’ve toyed with the idea of writing my biography. But something holds me back. There are many incidents and episodes in one’s life that are not meant for public consumption.”
Any birthday wishes? “Yes, to see this world freed of violence and stress.Everyone should get the same love that I have been fortunate enough to get in my lifetime.”
