Veteran Bollywood actor Dharmendra recently appeared on a singing reality show when he shared memories from his struggling days when he lived in a garage and worked in a drilling firm. The actor became nostalgic after contestants on the show performed the song 'Kal Ki Haseen Mulaqat Ke Liye' from his 1976 film, 'Charas'.

Dharmendra said, “In my earlier days, I used to live in a garage because I didn’t have a proper home in Mumbai. To survive in Mumbai, I worked in a drilling firm where I was paid Rs 200, and to earn some extra money I used to do overtime.”

The actor from Punjab ruled the industry in the 70s and 80s. His most memorable movies include 'Phool Aur Patthar', 'Anupama', 'Seeta Aur Geeta', and 'Sholay'.
