Hema Malini is Dharmendra's second wife and they have been married for over 38 years now. Dharmendra never divorced his first wife Prakash Kaur, and has maintained two separate families ever since. They together have four children - Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Vijeeta and Ajeeta. Sunny and Bobby Deol are actors. While both the families are hardly spotted together at family functions and other events, Hema Malini says that her relationship with stepson Sunny Deol is 'beautiful,' reports news agency PTI.

Hema Malini, also a BJP parliamentarian, had met with a road accident in Rajasthan a couple of years ago. She had reportedly fractured her nose and suffered injuries on her forehead.

Hema Malini's biography is written by journalist Ram Kamal Mukherjee and foreword is written by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Hema Malini's colleagues such as Ramesh Sippy, Juhi Chawla and Subhash Ghai also attended the launch.
