Hema Malini mother-in-law met her without her knowledge
Hema Malini previously described how her mother-in-law Satwant Kaur visited her at the dubbing studio after she had given birth to her daughter Esha Deol. In Ram Kamal Mukherjee’s book Hema Malini: Beyond the Dream Girl, Hema states that Satwant visited her without alerting “anyone in the house.” In addition, she described how her father-in-law Kewal Kishan Singh Deol would mock Hema’s father or brother after defeating them in arm wrestling.
Hema and Dharmendra married the marriage in 1980. They had two daughters, Esha Deol in 1981 and Ahana Deol in 1985. Previously, Dharmendra was married to Parkash Kaur. With her, he has four children: two sons named Sunny Deol and Bobby, and two girls named Vijeeta and Ajanta.
Hema had expressed to the author, “He (Kewal Kishan Singh Deol) would visit and have tea with my father or brother. Instead of shaking their hands, he would arm-wrestle them, and after conquering them, he would humorously exclaim, “Have butter, buttermilk, clarified butter. Idli and sambhar won’t make you strong). My father would laugh along with the others. He (Dharmendra’s father) was a cheerful individual.”
She also discussed Satwant “Satwant Kaur, the mother of Dharamji, was also loving and generous. I recall that she once visited me at a Juhu dubbing studio after I had conceived Esha. She had not notified anyone within the residence. I touched her feet, and she embraced me and whispered, “Beta, khush raho hamesha” I was glad they were pleased with me.”
Hema debuted in Bollywood with Sapno Ka Saudagar (1968). She subsequently appeared in other films, including Johny Mera Naam (1970), Seeta Aur Geeta (1971), Dharmatma and Sholay (1975), Dream Girl (1977), The Burning Train (1979), State Pe Satta (1982), Sitapur Ki Geeta (1986), Aatank (1996), Veer-Zaara (2004), and Aarakshan (2011), among others. Last observed in Shila Mirchi (2020).
