She eventually married him in 1980. Before they married, they both converted to Islam,since Dharmendra was already married to Prakash Kaur who refused to divorce him.

Hema was considered for a Tamil film when she was 15 but rejected by director C. V. Sridhar saying that she was too thin.In 1965, she got an opportunity to act in a short episode as dancer in Pandava Vanavasam, a Telugu film. Later Ananthaswamy, a film poducer offered her a role opposite Raj Kapoor in his film Sapno Ka Saudagar (1968). She was promoted as the dream girl of Bollywood right from that film itself.

Within four years of making her debut, she established herself as one of the leading actresses in Bollywood.During the mid 70s, her fans started calling her "Dream Girl", an allusion to the movie of the same name where she starred opposite Dharmendra.A majority of her films released during this period were highly successful; Sanyasi, Dharmatma and Pratigya. Sholay, released in 1975, became a box-office phenomenon, where she played the role of Basanti, an unforgettable role of a talkative girl.
