She started treating Dharmendra like her brother and used to tie rakhi on Raksha Bandhan every year. Dharmendra has remembered this sister by sharing her photo. Also, all the brothers and sisters of the country have expressed love for Rakhi.

Dharmendra has done many such films on the screen of Hindi cinema, in which he has played the role of a responsible brother. Films such as Resham Ki Dori best portray this character of Dharmendra. This film’s song Bahna has tied love on brother’s wrist … Even today Raksha Bandhan is prominent among the songs played.
