Enjoyed every minute: Hema on 50 years in showbiz
The actress, who recently turned 69, celebrates her golden jubilee in the industry with her biography Beyond The Dreamgirl
Veteran actress and politician Hema Malini, who celebrates her golden jubilee in the Indian entertainment industry with her biography Beyond The Dreamgirl, says she feels honoured to be a part of the film fraternity.
As many as 50 celebrities from the fraternity including Amitabh Bachchan, Vyjayanthimala, Lata Mangeshkar, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and Madhur Bhandarkar were part of a special video which was played at the launch of Hema's biography on her 69th birthday on October 16.
Hema took to Twitter today to thank all of them.
I must also thank all the 50 prominent film personalities who commemorated me on my completion of 50 yrs in the industry. I am honoured!— Hema Malini (@dreamgirlhema) October 19, 2017
She also went on to say, "Pamela Chopra has written about me so beautifully. Not being too much part of the industry now, it needed a catalyst like Ram Kamal and the book launch for me to understand the high esteem people here have for me."
Beyond The Dreamgirl has been penned by former editor of Stardust and producer Ram Kamal Mukherjee.
Starting her film career in 1968 with Raj Kapoor-starrer Sapno Ka Saudagar, Hema regaled movie buffs with roles in films like Seeta Aur Geeta, Sholay, Dream Girl and Satte Pe Satta. An accomplished classical dancer, Hema Malini earned the tag of 'Dreamgirl' for her flawless beauty and became a pioneering female superstar in an otherwise male-oriented film industry.
