Dharmendra said that he never believed in the industry's number game and would not have given a tough fight to his co-stars, had he done so.
"I was never bothered about my position in the industry. If I had believed in it, I wouldn't have allowed anyone to get ahead of me in the 1960s and 1980s. I never thought about all that," Dharmendra told the PTI.
The veteran actor felt it is important to focus on work rather than thinking about position in the industry. "For me, it's important to stay in the hearts of people, rather than make a place in one's mind," he said. He said that he missed all yesteryears' actors including Shashi Kapoor, Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor, besides directors and technicians.
Dharmendra further said that he is happy with the response he received for the trailer of his forthcoming movie Yamla Pagla Deewana 2. "A lot of people tweeted about the film like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Priety Zinta and others. I called them up to thank them. I don't know to use Twitter and I don't understand it. I wish to learn to use it and tweet," he said.
