For all those wondering, Dharmendra was present at daughter Esha's wedding. It is sad however that Sunny and Bobby Deol (Esha's half-brothers) haven't been spotted at the wedding festivities.

Why didn't all the chauvinistic men marry again dharam had zero tolerance to remain with Prakash alone and no love he had to remarry to be happy. Sunny and bobby it's too late instead of embarrassing Hema you are just embarrassing yourselves as your father is being mocked at for your stupid actions

Since dharam married Prakash he did not love if not why marry again

Since when is it ok to marry someone if you did nto love them? This marriage between D and his 1st wife happened in 60's or even prior and in those days almost 99.99% marriage was arrangeed and men had more say than women. Women learned to love their husbands even if they were creeps like Dharam. I cannot believe women saying that he did not love his 1st wife. After 4 kids, a younger and more beautiful model came along and that was his problem. If he did not love his 1st wife, how come ther are 4 children out of that marriage? The truth is like all chauvanistic crreepy men, he married someone and then when he found someone better looking, he decided to have them too. hema was an idiot and is paying the price for it.

Please can we all accept this fact that esha is from God bcos she came into this world against all odds with people trying to stop her mum and dad coming together but still she came into this world...for being that special child who needs sunny or bobby or any from dharam's other family Dharam is there so let it be. If you cannot give esha your best wishes then keep quite. I am sure all those giving nasty comments have a disastrous life.

Please for God sake let dharam Hema be.dharam wanted a divorce as he didn't love Prakash but Hema and Prakash refused bcos in India people are forced by law to live with spouses even if you realize you don't love them. Dharam and Prakash obviously was an arranged marriage he found someone he loves but out of wickedness Prakash refused to give him divorce so what should he do. Good he took the option to marry Hema as he loves her and she loves rather than stay with one he does not love and die in frustration. Sunny and Booby are trying to buy love for their mother please the truth is Dharam was never in love with their mother that was why he was able to marry Hema and whatever these boys do Dharam has already shown the world he loves Hema by marrying her and this single act showed where your mother belong sunny and bobby just keep living with it.

It is not about Hemaji. She has paid too costly a price for falling in love with an expert philanderer in his prime days. Today the old fart is dependent on his wife, his four kids who probably are having a field day pressuring him.
This day is Esha's. Dharam is not a big hearted man. He is a big coward, scared of his wife and grown kids.
Hemaji, stop living on crumbs of affection and attention. We the audience love you for the way you have conducted yourself through the years. You have entertained us with dedication, you have raised fine women, and you have taken complete responsibility for your actions. Never mind if the old geezer is running after his wife and kids. They probably worry about his will now.
---------------------------------
You must be a home-breaker yourself...no wonder you're idolizing the one who wronged a family and are making disparaging comments about his legitimate wife and kids running after his will...You're such a pathetic excuse for a human being! Disgusting..that you need to pull someone down who's maintained a dignified silence all these years and put up with a philandering man's excesses..Shame on you! If you're a woman I hope you Karma gifts you with the 'other-woman' in your life.

The thing is all Bollywood married actors have cheated on their spouse, some got married second time others didn't. But 99% have cheated I can bet. let's not just single out Dharmendra though I don't support his action.

Amitabh Bachhan
Jeetandra
Dharmendra
Mithun Chakraborty
Sanjay khan
Sanjay dutt
Shah rukh khan
Ajay Devgn
Akshay Kumar
Hrithik Roshan........ to name a few

They all have cheated.

Anonymous's picture

Hema the great malini got what she sowed- look at her life- all those women who have affairs with married men and all those married men who cheat on their wives deserve no respect.

At least Hema has one consolation that her daughter had the sense to find herself an available man. She should pray that what she did to another wife never happens to her daughter.

Dharam seems pissed off. They took the name Deol but why couldn't they have a Sikh wedding? It is disrespect to father when the wedding is of some other religion and not of the father's religion. Obviously he will not care of some other religion rituals. He is not the Groom that he needs to follow them.

Did your wedding not take place in your father's religion? Or will your wedding not take place in your father's religion?

Anonymous's picture

Sikh men don't wear dhoti, pajama etc. ever. They wear formal suits to weddings whether he is father of bride, father of the groom, or groom himself. Only nowadays younger generation wear sherwani. What ignorance!

Go attend some Sikh wedding at US, UK,INDIA , Canada etc.

Anonymous's picture

Formal suits is what Sikh men wear at weddings. Only youngsters wear Sherwanis.

And the wedding is taking place acc to his wife's religion not his religion. That is odd considering that they have taken the surname Deols. Doesn't your wedding take place in your father's religion? Or how would your father behave/feel if it takes place in some other religion?

You see the power of bad press? Previously he was hiding from the cameras but when he saw all the negative reports he got for that, he made an effort to pose for the press for the main wedding.

I feel being in a family they should have attended the wedding.
Esha and Hema ji havent done anything wrong to them or anything which disrespects Sunny-Bobby's mother.
They should have kept their egos aside and should have come
_____________________________________________________________
Seriously? Doesn't getting married to one's husband and then bearing his children constitute disrespect? I know I'd never mingle with my father's hypothetical second family especially if he'd gone behind my mother's back and cheated on her and not divorced her (along with the appropriate alimony). I understand Sunny and Bobby's decision to respect their mother and stay away.

Anonymous's picture

Sunny & Bobby have no obligation to their father's second family! So stop calling them names, both are succesful in their own right and seem to have stable family lives. They respect the sancitity of their own families. Hema is the woman who robbed their mother of their dignity, in their situation many of us would not be especially fond our father's second family.

looks like he was forced to be there - why couldnt he wear a sherwani and a proper pagg- its your daughters wedding after all!

Strangely never seen Hema Malini and Esha, Aahna Deol together with their"extended family" not even on important functions. Did Hema attend Sunny's wedding? Did Hema attend Bobby's wedding? What goes around comes around.

Abhay is not related to Hema at all. He is only related to Dharam distantly. He attended just like how other celebrities attended. It has nothing to do with Deols.

Have been wondering myself about dharamendra's behaviour, its obvious, though he's physically present, not actively involved. as some where it was mentioned that hema n dharam broke up but still he cud participate happily for his daughter's sake. it was obvious he was keeping himself aloof. and being a public figure, people aught to question it since its a known secret that he is the father.

Anonymous's picture

1 Hema & Dharam do not seem to be together since long. they seem to be uncomfortable with each other.
2 Sunny & Bobby need not go ,its like Arjun kapoor going for Sreedevis daughters wedding.
3 Dharam seems out of place here....clearly things are not ok ....one cannot & should not run away from being a father especially to a girl....no excuses for that

Anonymous's picture

One thing i like about Hema Malini is that he never stopped Dharmendra to go back to his first wife and kids....Once i read her interview where she said that there is only one thing that goes against her is that she got married with a already married man... It seems she regret that....and she nver wants her daughter to go through same....
As far as sunny and bobby are concerned...they were involved with Dimple and Priya CHatwal/Queenie Dhodhy though they are married...and then they are supporting their mother by not going to Esha's weddding...double standards.

And I really felt bad for Prakash Kaur. She supported Dharmendra fthrough thick and thin ...And he is ditiching her with Meena Kumari , Hema..and many others

Hey guys, check the post for Esha's engagement announcement. Remember those pics that were posted on PV, with Esha, her fiancee, Hema... and Dharmendra was there BUT DHARMENDRA DID NOT GET SNAPPED WITH THE COUPLE even then. At the time some commenters were remarking that it was strange. I mean they called a press conference, so many media ppl taking pics and HE WOULD NOT POSE WITH THE FAMILY even though he was THERE, just on his own off to the side. And now this? Seriously people what is up with that? That is not normal!

lost all respect for dharam after these pictures....him and hema do not seem to be on good terms, you can tell from hemas expressions...hema seems to be doing all the rituals too, i find it sad that our weddings dont let a marriage be fulfilled without the presence of a father during the ceremony, it just makes men much more powerfull than they are...i mean what are divorced or seperated ppl supposed to do, their only option is to let their close family members be part of the kanyadaan instead....sad!

why do people forget that sunny and bobby have a mother too! dont you think by attending esha's mariage they would be offending their own mother!!! The father and hema have already publically humilated her ( sunny's mom) several yers ago, and over and over again when they (hema and dharam) are seen together. the half brothers dont need to be there

-------------------------
Finally a sensible....rather sensitive comment. I find it difficult to sympathize with either Dharmendra or Hema..Both knew what they were getting into and whom they were hurting. Glad someone gave a thought to Dharam's first wife who's suffered in silence and stayed out of spotlight. She's the only one with real dignity, unlike the one feigning dignity (HemaMalini). I also sympathize with Esha/Aahana.. both of them had no say in what their parents did, and are just as innocent as Dharam's first wife.
So folks, stop whining about Sunny/Bobby's absence, bless the couple and move on!

Anonymous's picture

I understand about Sunny and Bobby not attending as they always sided with their mother against Hema. Fine.

But Dharmendra did choose to "marry" (in whatever fashion) and father these two girls. It seemed like he was involved with them before, so I'm really puzzled why he seems so standoffish on this most important occasion. And, if he had no problem with Hema saying he's her husband and Esha and Ahana saying he's their father for all these years, why the sudden shyness to perform his part in the wedding?

And for those saying he won't understand Hindu rituals, all he has to do is follow the priest's instructions for the strictly religious rites, and Hema's instructions for the social aspects. I live in North America and have seen many weddings between Indians and Americans and Canadians of all faiths, and no one ever had a problem following Hindu rituals if they chose to have that ceremony. So, if foreigners who have never been exposed to the religion can figure out what to do (just follow the priest's instructions), why should Dharmendra have any trouble? Are you trying to tell me he's never attended a Hindu wedding in his life? How many "Hindu" weddings must he have enacted in his movies?

Dharmendra very selfish man.

Anonymous's picture

Wow...people are incredible. When you thought he wasn't there, you are throwing stones at him. Now that there is proof he was at-his-daughter's-wedding, you are outraged he isn't properly dressed. As far as Hema is concerned, she's not dignified because dignified women do not sleep around with married men, let alone marry them by converting to Islam. Of course, Dharmendra is at fault for causing such pain to his first wife and kids, and now to Hema and his daughters. Sunny & Bobby are not there because they probably feel conflicted since their father left their mother for Hema (the dignified woman). And, we can speculate all we want...it's really their business.

Who did the Laja Homa? It is for the brother to do for his sister. Would have loved to see the half twitted brothers earn some goodwill by doing this. Face this, Dharam chose Hema over Prakash when she was at her prime. Despite all her advantages, he made her settle for less.
Everyone knows how he contrived with spot boys to convince hema to fall for him. Sad that Hema has given up so much for the first wife and kids without demanding a divorce. The least they could do is attend the wedding.Abhay has earned quite a bit of goodwill here. Hope he did the laja homa or hema's nephew.

Anonymous's picture

Dharam won't have a clue of South Indian wedding let alone a Hindu wedding. He is a Sikh and most probably a headstrong one but with a soft heart.

He is 77 years old and looks very frail. Seems like he and Hema had a fight. He looks perfectly ok attire wise. Formal suits is what Sikh men wear at weddings. Only youngsters wear Sherwanis.

I am sure he would have participated more if it was a Sikh wedding since he would know how it goes/is performed.

I've got to say it looks like he's taking the piss. A casual suit for your daughter's wedding. If you're going to be only half (or less than) involved with your family and the mother of your children on such landmark days - really don't bother coming at all. Hema can handle it, she should kick this guy to the curb instead of settling for this charade. It would make anyone feel sort of worthless.

As for Dharmendra, control your marrying urges. Two wives in two different religions is not cute, and not the way to go.

Anonymous's picture

Dharmendra looks very gaunt & thin like he's unwell or something. Especially in the third snap. Must be why he's keeping a low profile.

Anonymous's picture

Sunny & Bobby are on good terms with Hema & her gals. Esha talks of both with affection . Remember the interview on Rendezvous or KWK ? Hema spoke to Sunny about Esha's infatuation with Aftab .He advised to drop him . Esha recently said that Sunny took care of the distribution of her 'Tell me Oh Khuda''. If Sunny & Bobby were not there,it would have only been out of respect to their mum. All the Deol men are in serious relationships with other women,so it's unlikely they don't sympathise with their father or the 'woh'.

Anonymous's picture

I'm sorry, but, while Dharmendra was "at" the wedding, he seems to be there as a guest, not in the role of father of the bride. There are very well-defined duties for the bride's father in a Tamil wedding, and Dharmendra hasn't fulfilled any of them. For instance, as someone mentioned on the other thread, the bride sits on her father's lap at the time of the kanyadaan. Even in this photo, while Hema is waiting with the aarti plate to welcome the groom's party, Dharmendra looks like he doesn't even have anything to do with the proceedings. The contrast between Hema enacting every bit of the traditional mother's role, and Dharmendra is just too striking to be dismissed.

I haven't said anything about Dharmendra even in my own mind till now, but that photo of him with Hema is just too sad for me.
