Jeetendra, who charmed the audience with his impeccable acting and enthusiastic dance moves, once landed up doing something out of the blue in his career.

When Jeetendra flew to Chennai to marry Hema

Hema Malini and Dharmendra are one of the most adorable couples in Bollywood today. However, there are reports stating that, at one point of time, the former was going to tie the knot with Jeetendra and not Dharmendra in Madras. Three stars were reportedly in love with Hema-Sanjeev Kumar, Jeetendra, and Dharmendra. But Hema loved her Sholay co-star Dharmendra. However, as per a report, Jeetendra, along with his parents flew down to Chennai (then Madras) in 1974 with a marriage proposal for Hema Malini. Moreover, the Baghban actor's mother had also approved of it.

Reportedly, when Dharmendra was informed about the same, he was panic-stricken. The former went on to call Shobha, who was Jeetendra’s girlfriend back then, and the duo then jetted off to Chennai to stop the so-called wedding, as added by the reports. How Dharmendra convinced Hema Malini to not marry the Himmatwala actor yet remains unknown. And later, Dharmendra married Hema Malini and for the rituals, he also adopted the religion of Islam because he was already married and could not marry another woman, being a Hindu, says the reports.
