This was a initial time Hrishikesh Mukherjee brought this really concordant span together. Sharmila played Uma, a restricted lady who frequency spoke. Dharmendra plays a producer and a author who attempted to move a bashful cold Uma out of her shell. Their performances so complemented one another that Hrishida went on record to state this was his favourite star pair. A lot of us agree. Anupama was noted for a melodies stoical by Hemant Kumar.

Devar (1966)

In a same year as Anupama came another absolute drama, this one destined by Mohan Segal. Like Anupama, Devar too was about restricted tacit love. Dharmendra played Sharmila’s brother-in-law, silently in adore with her as he watched her humour in a bad marriage. A film approach conduct of a times, it was done noted by composer Roshan’s melodies, “Baharon ne mera chaman lutkar” and “Guzra zamana bachpan ka” sung by Mukesh.

Satyakam (1969)

Regarded by many as Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s best film and by distant Dharmendra’s many achieved performance, Satyakam expelled in 1969. As a man whose faith destroys his family, Dharmendra’s healthy opening has withstood all ravages of time. Sharmila plays the ideal foil as his understanding wife.

Yakeen (1969)

During a same year as Satyakam, Dharmendra and Sharmila were seen together in a kitschy espionage thriller Yakeen, directed by Brij Sadanah. The film is many noted for a pretension strain that enclosed a hotblooded favourite chasing Sharmila, who sported itsy bitsy prohibited pants. Put her in a ghagra-choli or a western outfit, Sharmila was diversion for any role.

Mere Humdam Mere Dost (1968)

Dharmendra and Sharmila looked outstanding together in Mere Humdum Mere Dost. Laxkimant-Pyarelal’s songs went a prolonged approach into creation this tacky film a blockbuster.

In a 1970s, Sharmila was busy doing films with Rajesh Khanna. But she reunited with Dharmendra one some-more time for their dear executive Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s comedy Chupke Chupke, which has acquired cult standing over a years.

Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka (1975)

A adore triangle featuring Dharmendra with Sharmila and Leena Chandravarkar. This is potentially a  most forgettable film from a Dharam-Sharmila oeuvre.

Sunny (1984)


The pleasing span came together one some-more time for Dharmendra’s home production, where Sharmila played his mistress. He dies during a commencement of a film withdrawal behind a dual women in his life, Sharmila and Waheeda Rehman to quarrel it out.


Devdas (1976)

Gulzar launched his possess chronicle of Saratchandra classical with Dharmendra, Sharmila and Hema Malini expel as Devdas, Paro and Chandramukhi. Tragically a plan went no serve than a mahurat. If this chronicle of Devdas had happened no doubt Dharmendra and Sharmila would have given a new franchise of life to Saratchandra’s cursed lovers.
