On Dharmendra's 85th birthday, the sweetest wish came from his wife, actress Hema Malini. The Dream Girl co-stars got married in 1979 but more on that later. On Tuesday, Hema Malini posted a set of photographs comprising a throwback of herself and Dharmendra and a recent picture of themselves and accompanied it with an adorable caption. "Yesteryear and now. Your respect, blessings and love have kept us together all these years," the 72-year-old actress wrote in the greeting for her husband. The first photo is the cutest throwback you will see on the Internet today. It features Hema Malini and Dharmendra posing for the camera adorably.
