Yesteryear's superstar Dharmendra just shared an adorable blast from the past! The actor took to Twitter to post a picture from the sets of his 1972 film Do Chor. What is interesting about the picture is NOT how amazing Dharmendra looks with a fake moustache and loud clothes, but the mother breastfeeding her baby. Calling her a 'hippie' mother, he commended her love and affection for her 'innocent' baby. He also called the duo, 'sun shine.' The mother was a part of the song Yari Ho Gayi Yaar Se.
The actor played a thief Tony, who the police employ to catch another thief. The film also starred Tanuja, a 'thief' taking revenge from wealthy men who robbed her family off their inheritance. In a world were public breastfeeding is hyper-sexualised and frowned upon, Dharmendra's tweet is a glorious reminder that broad-mindedness doesn't have an era.
Check out the tweet below:
Dharmendra recently trolled his wife Hema Malini for her Swatch Bharat fiasco, where she was seen cleaning the Parliament with other politicians. When asked whether she has ever cleaned in real life, Dharmendra said, "In films." He also recently praised his son Sunny Deol, who rescued a Gurdaspur woman from a sex trafficking ring in Kuwait.
Check out his supportive tweet for son Sunny Deol:
