Mumbai. Veteran Bollywood actor Dharmendra once called director Hrishikesh Mukherjee after drinking alcohol. Dharmendra told on a show that he kept harassing Rishikesh on the phone all night. This call was made by the actor for not giving the director a role in the film ‘Anand’. Let’s know why Dharmendra called Rishikesh under the influence of alcohol-

Rishikesh narrated the script of ‘Anand’ to Dharmendra
Hrishikesh and Dharmendra worked together in the film Satyakam. Once while on a flight, Rishikesh narrated the script of ‘Anand’ to Dharmendra. However, when the casting took place, Rajesh Khanna was replaced. Angered by this, Dharmendra had called the director after drinking alcohol. In the year 2019, Dharmendra told this story openly in an episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma’ show. He had said, ‘Rishi da narrated the script of ‘Anand’ to me. When we were coming from Bangalore, they said we are going to do this, they are going to do it. Later it came to know that the shooting of that movie has started and Rajesh Khanna is in the lead role.

When Dharmendra came to know about the casting of the film, he harassed Rishikesh by phone all night while intoxicated. He said, ‘I did not let Rishikesh sleep through the night. I told him, ‘You were supposed to give me this role, you told me the story, then why did you give him the film? He kept telling me, Dharam, go to sleep, we will talk tomorrow morning. He would hang up and I would call him again and ask, ‘Why did you give him this role?’

Significantly, in recent years, Dharmendra has appeared in only a few films. He was last seen in ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se’. Now it is said that Part 2 of his film ‘Apne’ is about to be made. Apart from this, the actor has recently signed Karan Johar’s film ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’. Karan is going to return to direction with this film.
