Dharmendra Lashes Out At Media As He Reached To Cast Vote In Mumbai

On Monday in Mumbai, veteran actor Dharmendra went out to vote in the Lok Sabha Elections of 2024. As he approached the voting booth, the 88-year-old actor grinned at the photographers; however, as he was about to leave, Dharmendra became agitated with the press.

A video of the same event went viral online, showing the seasoned actor becoming irate over a question from a journalist.

What did Dharmendra say?

In the video, Dharmendra is seen saying, “Acche shehri bano, desh bhakt bano, maa baap see pyaar karo… aap ko malum hai jo mujhse kehelwana chahte hai (Be a good citizen, love your parents, you already know this.)” The incident happened as Dharmendra was returning after casting his vote.
