Mathura goes to the polls on April 18. Addressing BJP supporters, Dharmendra praised the Narendra Modi government.
On persistent demands, he repeated his famous dialogues from “Sholay“. He called himself a farmer and appealed to local farmers to strengthen the BJP. He said, “Gaaonwalo, agar aapne Hema ko badi jeet nahi dilayi… tanki kidhar hai?” (People, if you didn’t help Hema to acquire majority this election… where’s the water tank?). The ‘water-tank’ reference was from his movie ‘Sholay’.
Hema Malini was with him during meetings and at many interactions in Goverdhan area.
Dharmendra promised to return to the region after Hema Malini’s victory and have food at a farmer’s home.
Earlier, Hema Malini tweeted: “Today is also a special day for me! Dharamji is here in Mathura to campaign for a whole day on my behalf.”
The actress’ campaign has been inspiring jokes and memes galore on social media.
Her farm woman avatar, wherein she joined farmers and tried her hand at cutting the wheat crop in this region in Uttar Pradesh, invited not just scorn from the opposition but also the tag of ‘drama girl’ over the ‘dream girl’ she has been known as.
