In an old interview, Tanuja opens up about working with the talented and good-looking actor Dharmendra. However, the actress revealed that she had slapped him and called him ‘Besharam’. Dharmendra even apologised to her later and asked her to make him her brother. Initially, Tanuja was hesitant in doing so, but later she tied a black thread on his wrist as a rakhi and made him her brother.

This dates back to shooting for Chand Aur Suraj in 1965. This time, Dharmendra was already married to his first wife Prakash Kaur. Talking about the same Tanuja said, “One day he tried to flirt with me. Taken aback, I slapped him and said, ‘Besharam! I know your wife, and you have the audacity to flirt with me’. Embarrassed he pleaded, ‘Tanu, meri maa, sorry bolta hoon (I am sorry)! Please make me your brother’. I refused to say I was happy with my own brother (Jaideep)’. After much cajoling, I took a black thread and tied it around on his wrist.”
