Dharmendra maintained two relationships at the same time. His first marriage was to Prakash Kaur at the age of 19 in 1954. His second marriage was with actress Hema Malini. It is believed that they fell in love on the sets of film Sholay (1975) although they had made films together before. He married Hema while he was still married to his first wife Prakash Kaur.
