An authorised biography of actor Hema Malini, titled ‘Beyond The Dreamgirl’, was launched in London recently. The author, Ram Kamal Mukherjee, invited Vyjayanthimala Bali to help release the book.
Mukherjee said, “I knew that Hemaji would be happiest if I could get Vyjayanthimala ji to release the book in London. The book traveled across the globe and has been well appreciated by reviewers and media persons. It’s an honour to share stage with Nari Hira, Hemaji and Vyjayanthimala ji, three important personalities who played a pivotal role in my journalism career.”
“My mom (Jaya Chakravarthy) loved Vyjayanthimala ji, as a kid I used to love her grace. I grew up watching her films and I was a great fan of her performance. It was my mother who wanted me to be a film star just like her. It’s my honour that she agreed to be a part of this ceremony,” Hema said.
The book was launched in India earlier this year by actor Deepika Padukone.
Hema Malini began her Hindi film career with a major role in Sapno Ka Saudagar. The actor was well known for her dancing as well as acting skills, leading media to dub her as the ‘Dream girl’.
