Sunny Deol and Dimple Kapadia may have denied time and again that they were ever in a relationship, but rumours have always spoken otherwise. The two had a sizzling chemistry on screens, which even extended off the screens, and was visible, for all to see. However, no one in the industry has ever gone on record to say anything about this affair which was always under the covers. But looks like, Sunny’s stepmom and veteran actress Hema Malini, may have just spilled the beans, accidentally.
In her recently released biography ‘Hema Malini: Beyond The Dream Girl (City Plans)’, Hema has stated an incident which kind of puts a stamp on the alleged Sunny-Dimple affair. (Also Read: Were Sunny Deol and Dimple Kapadia married? Check out their hidden love story in pictures)
The year was 1992, when Hema Malini was making her directorial debut with ‘Dil Aashna Hai’, a very bold movie as per the times, which dealt with pre-marital pregnancy. Dimple Kapadia was roped in as the mother of the protagonist, played by Divya Bharti. While talking about one of the scenes in the movie which involved Dimple, Hema recalls in the book, “I wanted to shoot a paragliding scene with Mithun (Chakraborty) in ‘Dil Aashna Hai’ and there was an aeroplane scene which was required for a song sequence. A few days before the shoot, a pilot had met with an accident and Dimple was very scared to do the shoot. She informed Sunny, and out of concern Sunny came and met me. I assured Sunny that she would be safe, and that’s when I started talking to him.” (Source: ‘Beyond The Dream Girl (City Pansy) by Ram Kamal Mukerjee)
It has also been a known fact that Sunny and Bobby Deol‘s relationship with Hema Malini have been very strained ones, and neither likes to talk about the other. In her biography, thus, Hema has not only confirmed the same, but has also nearly confirmed that Sunny indeed had a soft corner for Dimple.
Well, whether the affair transpired or not, we must say that Sunny and Dimple created magic, whenever they came together, on screen or off screen. And while we speak of that, let’s leave you with this video of them holding hands in London, which sparked a fresh fire, recently.
