Dharmendra Reveals Why He Ate Onions Before Shoot With Asha Parekh

  • Dharmendra Reveals Why He Ate Onions Before Shoot With Asha Parekh

Veteran actor Dharmendra has recalled how, back in the day when he had to shoot with Asha Parekh, he would he would turn up on the set after eating onions.


"Every movie of Asha ji's was a super-duper hit and I used to call her Jubilee Parekh," recalled Dharmendra, adding that he finally got to work with her in the 1966 film, "Aaye Din Bahaar Ke".


"We were shooting in Darjeeling, and after pack-up the producers and other crew members would party till late in the night. I would also join the party and we would get drink. In the morning the smell (of alcohol) would be quite evident, so to hide the smell I would eat onions," said Dharmendra.


Parekh, however, would then complain that he "smells of onion" adding that she didn't like it.


Asha Parekh and Dharmendra, along with Waheeda Rehman, are set to reveal such anecdotes when they turn up as guests in an upcoming episode of the kids' singing reality show, "Superstar Singer", on Sony.


On his onion-eating trick, Dharmendra finally admitted to Parekh on the reality show: "I told you that I eat onions to hide the smell of alcohol, and you asked me to stop drinking.


On your suggestion, I stopped drinking and we became very good friends. We are like a family and those days were lovely. The Beautiful memories at times make me sad but the amazing experiences of the past help me cheer up."


Asha Parekh recalled how Dharmendra would not touch a drop of alcohol even if he felt cold, just because he had promised her.


"There was a song in which Dharmendra ji had to dance in the water. Because it was so cold, he would turn blue.


Every time he came out of the water, he would be offered brandy. However, he would look at me, because I had told him that if he drinks I will walk out of the set. This went on for two or three days, but he did not take a sip of alcohol out of his respect for me."
