At his 78th birthday Sunday, the actor was excitedly waiting for his gift from Hema.
"Age does not matter. One has to be child-like always, like Dharamji, who was so excited to receive a gift from me for his birthday last evening," tweeted Hema, who worked with him in hits like "Seeta Aur Geeta" and "Sholay".
Hema and Dharmendra got married in 1979 and have two daughters - Esha and Ahana.
Dharmendra is known for his work in movies like "Phool Aur Patthar", "Sholay", "Seeta Aur Geeta" and "Chupke Chupke".
In recent times, the actor starred alongside his sons - Sunny and Bobby Deol - in "Apne", "Yamla Pagla Deewana" and "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2".
