Dharam Singh Deol was born in 8 December 1935, known mononymously as Dharmendra, is an Indian actor, producer and politician who is known for his work in Hindi films. Known as the “He-Man” of Bollywood, Dharmendra has worked in over 300 films in a career spanning five decades. In 1997, he received the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to Hindi cinema. He was a member of the 15th Lok Sabha of India, representing Bikaner constituency in Rajasthan from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In 2012, he was awarded India’s third-highest civilian honour Padma Bhushan by the Government of India.

Dharmendra was born Dharam Singh Deol in Sahnewal, a village in Ludhiana district, Punjab on 8 December 1935 to Kewal Kishan Singh Deol and Satwant Kaur into a Jat Sikh family. His ancestral village is Dangon, near Pakhowal Tehsil Raikot, Ludhiana.

He spent his early life in the village of Sahnewal and studied at Government Senior Secondary School at Lalton Kalan, Ludhiana, where his father was the village school’s headmaster. He did his matriculate in Phagwara in 1952. Dharmendra’s first marriage was to Parkash Kaur at the age of 19 in 1954. He had two sons from this marriage, Sunny and Bobby, both successful film actors, and two daughters, Vijeeta and Ajeeta. His nephew Abhay Deol is also an actor.

After moving to Bombay and getting into the film business, Dharmendra married Hema Malini after allegedly converting to Islam to stay married to his first wife without having to get a divorce. Dharmendra, however, denied his conversion to Islam. He and Malini starred together in a number of movies in the early 1970s, including Sholay. The couple has two daughters, Esha Deol (an actress, born in 1981) and Ahana Deol (an assistant director, born in 1985).

Dharmendra’s grandson and son of Bobby Deol, is also named “Dharam Singh Deol” after Dharmendra. In 2019, Dharmendra’s grandson and Sunny Deol’s son Karan Deol made a debut with Pal Pal Dil Ke Pas.
