Do you know we would have done Sholay together. But God and Ramesh Sippy had other plans!’

But that didn’t tarnish Singh’s relationship with the Deols.Shatrughan also said in a recent statement to tabloid, ‘Not just Dharmendra, Hema is also a dear friend. Both Hema and Dharmendra have been my friends for years. It is rare for a friendship to survive so long in this industry where loyalties change every Friday’.
