Dharmendra frequently tweets messages of gratitude to persons he admires. The veteran actor has also appeared on India’s Best Dancer, a dance reality competition. On the show, he was accompanied by legendary actress Asha Parekh. When Dharmendra saw a dance performance with slides of him and his actor sons Sunny and Bobby Deol in the background, he became upset. “This life, as long as we live, is a fight,” Dharmendra added, identifying with the emotive dance act. This fight isn’t going to finish anytime soon. This fight is what motivates us to keep going. This fight has brought you to this point; you’ll confront new challenges and achieve new heights as a result of it. I’ve suffered and continue to struggle.”
