Dharmendra Gets A Special 20-Minute Call From Lata Mangeshkar To Cheer Him Up; Veteran Actor Says, 'Lataji Is My Jaan' - EXCLUSIVE
On Sunday, fans friends and admirers of the iconic Dharmendra were concerned when he posted what seemed to be a despondent poem about mortality. Soon tweets about his health began to flood the internet. I rang up the affable actor to know the truth. He was as gracious and affectionate as ever.

Expressing his gratitude for the  concern Dharamji said, “It was just one of those vulnerable moments. The past one year has  not been  kind to any of us. I’ve been persuaded by my family to lock myself away in my farmhouse far away from the crowds. I spend my time  exercising, writing poems and listening to Lataji’s songs.”

Lataji who is very fond of both Dharamji and his wife Hema Malini rang him up to cheer him up.

Said Dharamji happily, “In fact I  just spent twenty minutes on the phone with her. Lataji is my jaan. Her songs are what  kept me going during the lockdown. Woh sakshaat Saraswati Maa hain (she is  Goddess Saraswati reincarnated). We talk quite often. When she  called to ask why I was depressed my depression flew  out of  the window. ‘Depressed  hon aapke dushman,’ she told me. Her affection for me and mine for her is unconditional. May God keep her healthy and  happy.”

Speaking of the ‘depressed’ tweet that depressed his fans Dharamji says,  “I’ve a poet’s sensitivity. I hurt easily. You will be surprised to know how many films I’ve done for emotional reasons and how many I quit for the same reason.For me my relationships are far more important than my professionalism. I’d rather be known as a good human being than a good actor. Luckily, God has blessed me with so much goodwill from everyone. Everywhere I go I receive only  love from all. You are speaking  to me  from far-off Patna. But I feel your warm vibes every time we speak. My biggest  achievement is the love I receive from everyone. Everything else is temporary.’
