Getting the right comic timing gives you a different high. On never winning an award He has more than films to his credit, but Dharmendra never won a Best Actor award. It was only a few years ago that he got a Lifetime Achievement award, and it was presented to him by none other than Dilip Kumar. I have been such a big fan of him, and it was the happiest moment for me. Not because I was receiving the award, but because I got to meet him.
