Garam Dharam, the bollywood hunk of the 70’s had his bit of romancing the gorgeous actresses of his time on the screen. If Dharmendra was to be cast opposite the bollywood beauties of today, who’d be the ideal actresses he’d look best with? Priyanka Chopra has a naughty sex appeal on screen which would go really well with Dharamji, because of his mix of funny with brawn. Part of Katrina Kaif’s sexiness is in her innocence that she carries around with all the confidence she can gather, a quality which would go really well with Dharamji’s father-figure like nature. Anushka Sharma is the excitingly bubbly and sexy dame that Dharamji’s composed and sensible side would really compliment. Vidya Balan’s mature and voluptuous looks would have had Dharamji dancing around the trees all over again. The one thing that Deepika Padukone and Dharamji share is their love for Badminton and if paired together on-screen they would’ve really hit it off well. The similarities between Dharmendra’s real life dream-girl, Hema Malini and Madhuri Dixit are too many. Both are well-trained dancers, both of them are the finest actors of their time and both of them have looked the prettiest, no matter their age. This makes Madhuri one of the most ideal actresses to star opposite Dharmendra. Tell us who you think is the best actress today who can lead opposite Dharmendra
