I don't understand why Dharmendra and Hema Malini would convert to Islam.  Granted officially, India outlawed Polygamy for Hindus while allowing it for Muslims, but there are plenty of Hindus with second wives even after the law was established.

The government doesn't really go after people, like say the US government does for bigamy.  You can be married to two people if you want, and even if it's technically illegal, the government will leave you alone. Unless... the wife files a complaint.

P.S. this includes polyandry, which is still practiced in some rural/tribal areas.

Think Prakash Kaur, the first wife, would have DEFINITELY filed a complaint. Would explain why Dharmendra felt he HAD to convert.  Question is though, is he still officially a Muslim? Or did he pack it in after the wedding?

^^ Oh, yes. That makes sense. 

I have no idea if he's officially still a Muslim. It's not like anyone took the 'conversion' seriously anyway.

P.S. I said Hindu, when I think the Deols are Sikh.  But what I meant was the Hindu Marriage Act, which was meant to encompass Sikhs as well.

But it might explain the conversion.  Since I don't think Sikhism ever allowed Polygamy.

As teenagers growing up in Bombay we often used to read these about these affairs.

Then when AIDS was discovered that was around 88- 89...we used to wonder how it will affect BOLLYWOOD.  

With so many of them changing partners... Today after almost 20 yrs Its  sure is a blessing these guys are all  NORMAL and have healthy lives.

He became a  MUSLIM only to get married...I doubt whether he is a  muslim now.
Its unfortunate how these celebrities get away  with all this,

There were so many after Hema Malini. Sanjeev Kumar was besotted with her. And the other was Jeetendra...

Ruky, Rajesh Khanna was a superstar in his time...VERYYY good looking guy. My parents tell me his craze was something else--girls married photos of his. It's no wonder Tina fell for him..
 
As for dharam paaji I don't think he's still Muslim. He actually has 2 sons and 4 daughters.
