Legendary actor Dharmendra’s social media accounts are a treasure trove of Golden Age of cinema. The actor often shares unknown facts about his career in the film industry or drops some truth bombs now and then. On Monday, Dharmendra revealed about the one time his screen test was rejected.

The actor posted a picture with actor Sadhana and spoke about how he missed a chance to work with Sadhana in Love in Shimla but later, went onto feature with her in Ishq Par Zor Nahin.

“Sadhana, a fine artist, a lovely human being. I was given a screen test to work with her in Love In Simla but rejected. Peete Peete Iss Maikhane Mein… Jaam Badal Jaate Hain,” Dharmendra wrote. After Dharmendra was rejected, Love In Simla was made with Joy Mukherjee and Sadhana in lead. Interestingly, Love In Simla released in 1960 while Ishq Par Zor Nahin released a decade later in 1970.

This is not the first time when Dharmendra remembered Sadhana. The actor in May posted another photo of himself with Sadhana and expressed his regret that he starred only in one film with her.
