Hema Malini and Dharmendra have done several songs together like “Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin” from Tum Haseen Main Jawan.

Hema Malini is a diva in the truest sense. She is Bollywood’s Dream Girl, an actor, a wife, a mother and even a grandmother. While she enjoys being the granny the most, she thinks playing a mother was the most difficult for her. In a candid chat with indianexpress.com, she got into answering some rapid fire questions, leaving everyone in splits with her funny replies, some of it were around her husband and Bollywood icon Dharmendra.

Hema Malini was in Delhi recently to promote her dance collaboration with Georgia. The 68-year-old has become the face of a cultural extravaganza, an Indo-Georgian dance ballet titled ‘Synergy’. We all know that Hema is a trained Bharatnatyam dancer and has been instrumental in promoting traditional Indian dance forms across the world. But there is one western style she would love to learn – Salsa!

“I’ve done all Indian style of dance. Few western movements also I’ve done in films and all. But the form or style that I want to learn would be Salsa,” Hema said.

But before we could move on to our next question, the veteran actor cut us short and added, “Now, ask me ‘with whom?’ Salsa with Dharam ji… Both will be in different corners,” she said before breaking into a loud laughter.


Hema took Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan’s names as her favourite co-stars apart from Dharmendra. She also said she prefers to remain lazy and sleep on a normal Sunday.

So, what’s that one question that irritates Hema Malini? “How do you maintain yourself so well?” she revealed. How many times have we asked this to her already? Well, now we know what goes on inside her mind.
