Dharmendra: I was horrible in studies, hence wanted to pursue acting

Bollywood Legend Dharmendra made an appearance on ‘Entertainment Ki Raat’ and was at his candid best! He looked dapper in black and grey attire that went well with his stylish hat. In a frank discussion with host Saumya Tandon, he said, “In my growing-up days, I used to look up to Dilipkumar saab. I was in complete awe of his charisma and I think there can’t be anyone like him in this film industry.” He further added saying, “I started my career with a photo-shoot. I was horrible in studies and wanted to pursue modelling and acting, but my father was totally against it. In those days, the film industry was not looked upon as a respectable career and he didn’t approve of it.” When asked what profession would he have pursued, if he weren’t an actor, the ‘Sholay’ actor promptly replied, “If not an actor, I would have been an athlete and would get a gold medal for India.”
