“I’m looking forward to working with Ramesh Sippy again” – Hema Malini

Dream Girl Hema Malini is all set to return to a feature-film assignment, a film directed by Ramesh Sippy where she co-stars with the very talented Rajkummar Rao.

She giggles at the mention of the film. “In the midst of all that is happening in the sansad and my constituency, this film offer came to me. Normally I wouldn’t have said yes, given my grueling schedules in parliament and my obligations in my constituency. But this film is not the usual run-of-the-mill stuff.”

Hemaji says she loved the script. “It’s light-hearted comedy with a very unusual role for me. I am sure it will turn out to be something very special. Also, the offer came from Rameshji (director Ramesh Sippy) who is returning to direction after many years. I couldn’t say no to him. Some of my most important films, be it Andaz, Seeta Aur Geeta or Sholay have been with Rameshji. I get a feeling this new film with Rameshji would be another important film in my career.”

How does Hema intend to find the time to shoot for the film?

“Just like I’m doing everything in my life,” she shoots back. “There is no time to sit and brood about how to do things. Just do it! I’m in Mathura right now. Then I’m in Delhi to attend parliament. After that I’m in Mumbai… It’s work around the clock. But it’s a great high,” says the Dream Girl who admits her life is a dream-come-true.

“Everything I’ve wanted has been mine. I wanted my two daughters to be happily married. When Esha and Ahana got married I didn’t get two sons-in-law. I got two sons. My two damaads are the sons I never had.”

While life lends itself to a hectic pace from city to city for Hemaji, she won’t compromise on her basic health precautions. “I have to eat and sleep on time, and properly. That is non-negotiable.”
