“I don’t even oil my hair. Actually I’ve ruined my hair by colouring, darkening and then straightening it back to back. As a result I’ve ended up with some bad looking fizzled hair ends.”
“I have no complaints. I’m blessed to have such a father,he’s all heart.”
“I just love my dad and to see him get recognition for his work so late when he deserved so much more made me emotional. My dad appreciates everything in life and speaks his heart out.”
“They are one of the best directors in the industry but beyond that, the most important thing is that they are very humble and treat me like their younger brother.”
“For me, it was like a dream come true. Sunny and I always wanted to do a film with our father. So, it is a very special film. The film is not just about us and how we Deols are, but there are some moments that every family goes through. So when you see the film, you come out with a feeling that you really want to be with your family.” [Speaking about Apne]
“Akshaye is one of my favorite co-stars. He is a buddy. We don’t need to meet each other everyday but we just get along very well. He is a very straight forward man and a very genuine person.” [About Akshaye Khanna]
“I have fought with Rani and I have fought with Preity at some point or the other but we have become better friends after these fights.”
“It feels nice to hear how much my dad is loved even now. And we as his children will always have to live in his shadow. I feel no progeny can outdo their parents’ achievements, just like no fruit can grow bigger than the trees that bears it.”
“Films aren’t exactly the be-all and end-all of my life. I am more of a family man and I prefer spending more time with my wife Tanya, instead of doing the run-of-the-mill stuff.”
“A Production house does not matter to me. The script should be good. As far as Abbas-Mustan go, I’ll never refuse to work with them. So if people come to me with stories and if Abbas-Mustan are going to direct it, then I feel they will do a good job because I believe in them completely.”
“Men get embarrassed to cry, thinking it’s not manly, but we can’t hide our emotions. We can’t live a facade.”
“I have changed a lot . I have realized that most people here are hypocrites. They are sweet to you on your face. But the moment your back is turned, they start bitching about you. Initially I used to get hurt by all this but now I’m learning to be indifferent. I enjoy my work and I keep to myself. I know now that every person I meet is not my genuine well-wisher or my friend. So I am learning to be friendly but not trusting.”
“All these ten years, I badly missed my people – my colleagues in the industry and the audience that has bestowed the boundless love to me and my sons all these years. In fact, I much admit I was a bit apprehensive that the absence from films would extinguish the flame of love between us.” [Dharmendra about Apne]
“It has been my ardent desire and my biggest ambition, for a long time, to work with my sons together in a film. However, for this to happen, a suitable script had to be found where all of us would fit well as actors. This is what took such a long time for all three of us to come together in a film,” [Dharmendra about Apne]
