Dharmendra

Veteran actor Dharmendra Singh Deol, who ruled showbiz in the 1970s and 1980s, says he only wanted to be in people's heart and not in people's mind, and was never in the ball-game of being called the number one actor.

"In the '70s and '80s, I was so big that if I wished, I would not have let anyone get ahead of me, but I was never into this number one game. I only used to concentrate on my work. You lose concentration on work if you think about number one and number two. I was never in the race for number one and number two," Dharmendra told reporters during the cover launch of People magazine.

"I always want to be people's heart and not in people's mind. I am in people's heart and it is not easy to take me away from their heart (Dimag se toh nikal doge lekin dil se kaise nikal paoge)," he added.

While megastar Amitabh Bachchan complimented Dharmendra on Twitter for the outstanding promos of "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2", Dharmendra says he thanked Big B for his compliment but he does not know how to use Twitter.

Writing on Twitter, Bachchan said: "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" looking like a lot of fun. Trailer a riot!! Wishing Dharamji, Sunny and Bobby the best ... print ad and banners unique."

"I called up Amitji he was shooting in Bhopal and he said he really liked the promos (Amitabh said: Paji bada mazaa aaya promo dekhke). I thank everyone whoever tweeted about 'Yamla Pagla Deewana'. Even now I don't know to use Twitter. I am a Punjabi Jat... I don't know anything about Twitter and I don't even want to know about it. Maybe I will learn how to tweet in future," the 77-year-old said.

Directed by Sangeeth Sivan, "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" features Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Anupam Kher, among others. The film is slated for June 7 release.
