Dharmendra says Guddi was made to remind all 'film world is all false, don’t get carried away': 'But in vain'
Dharmendra took a trip down memory lane and spoke about Guddi. The 1971 film featured him and Jaya Bachchan.
Actor Dharmendra on Monday recalled why the 1971 movie Guddi, featuring himself and actor Jaya Bachchan, was made. Taking to Instagram, Dharmendra shared a video clip from the movie in which actor Jaya is seen expressing her love for him while talking to his pictures.
In the clip, a young Jaya Bachchan wore a white sleeveless top paired with a black skirt. She wore matching jewellery and tied her hair into two braids wearing minimal makeup. She was heard comparing herself to Mirabai and telling Dharmendra's pictures that even though he is married, she isn't jealous as his wife is like her sister.
Sharing the post, he captioned it, "We made film Guddi, to aware school girls and boys that film (movie camera emoji) world is all false. Don’t get carried away. But in vain. I still say there is a big difference between craze and love...." The film, directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and written by Gulzar, starred Jaya as a schoolgirl who has a crush on Dharmendra, who plays himself.
