Born on the 8th December 1935 at Nasrali Village near Ludhiana, Punjab, Dharmendra travelled a distance everyday to see Suraiya’s ‘Dillagi’ only to make up his mind that he wants to become an actor. He came to Mumbai and won Filmfare’s new talent award which helped him bag a few films. He made his debut with Arjun Hingorani's ‘Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere’ in 1960 but it was ‘Anpadh’ and Bimal Roy’s ‘Bandini’ which made filmmakers take note of him. In his 55 year old career, the ‘action king’ and ‘he-man’ has played almost all roles making him the only actor to romance the maximum heroines on screen. As the veteran actor turns octogenarian, we look at 10 of his most memorable performances over the years.
