Dharmendra:Dilawar Khan Kewal Krishn

Dharmendra (born as Dharam Singh Deol) is one of the most charismatic actors that Indian cinema has ever had. The dashing actor had reportedly converted to Islam in 1979. The actor was married to Prakash Kaur when he fell in love with actress Hema Malini. He didn’t want to divorce his wife but could not marry again as per the Hindu Marriage Act. So he converted to Islam and married Hema. Since then he has maintained two separate families. It is said that since there were many protests during his second marriage, the actor had no other option than to change his religion to legitimise his union with Hema Malini.

Hema Malini :Aisha Bi R. Chakravarty

Hema was born in the Tamil-speaking Chakravarthy household on October 16, 1948 in Ammankudi, Tamil Nadu. Her dad’s name is V.S.R. Chakravarthy and her mom, Jaya, was a film producer.After turning down marriage proposals from Sanjeev Kumar and Jeetendra, she met with hot fellow actor, Dharmendra, both were attracted to each other and wanted to get married. Dharmendra, who was already married to Prakash Kaur, and had two sons, Sunny and Bobby, could not marry Hema as Prakash refused to divorce him. According to the Hindu Marriage Act, a Hindu cannot marry a second time while the first wife is still alive. Dharmendra belongs to a Arya Samaj Hindu Punjabi Jatt family.

On August 21, 1979, both  Dharmendra and Hema malini converted to Islam.They changed their names to Aisha Bi R. Chakravarty and Dilawar Khan Kewal Krishn respectively, and got married in accordance with Islamic rites.

    In Islam shariyath gives reason to get married second like if a man’s first wife is healthy I’ll or having no children for many years after marriage and discomfort in the family you can marry to take care of your parents….having no knowledge of the shariyath all nonsense saying…….

    This is called opportunism, they are using religion to meet their personal selfish interests…these people hv no faith in Islam but hv used Islam to meet their need.

    namaste friends,

    i think these decision were taken due to deceiving the rule of india hema is now in bjp and she is a recognised hindu. so i think these type of activities defaming the very religion. stop intruders of ill intentive persons. these men are loyal to none the religions.

    You are antiquarian illiterates, If A man is allowed four wives a woman should be allowed five. This selfish movie star should be castigated for being a chauvanist punk who shows how macho he is in every movie. An average actor loved by the male chauvanist pigs of the world. Shah Rukh with a genial personality that respects women should be your hero but the people living in the 6th century will continue to degrade women and love Dharmendra instead

    It’s not true that Hema And Dharmendra both are converted to Islam.
    Because when a Media person questioned about converting to Islam.
    Then Dharmendra clearly denied it.
    Request you to share correct information before you update it.
    Because sharing incorrect information is a sin in Islam.

      Before accusing someone of sinning,even we all should do a good research on the topic .There are innumerable resources whixh points to fact that since hindu law does not allow polygamy ,dharmendra had indeed converted to Islam just for the sake of marrying Hema Malini.

      If you need some proofs ,you may check this article of milli gadget which says how dharmendra deny his conversion to Islam but his political opponents have made his nikah nama with hema malini public :
