Hema Malini- The Authorized Biography

Dream girl Hema Malini’s life has been well researched in the book ‘Hema Malini- The Authorized Biography’ written by author Bhawana Somaaya. The book has plenty of information about this famous actress cum dancer. Half of the book has been dedicated on Hema’s position as a classical dancer. Of course, even the lady makes it clear that along with acting, dancing is her twin passion but for majority of her fans over the decades, she is still the 'dream girl' they have cherished on the screen rather than stage.

Every part of the book reflects Bhawana Somaaya’s deep research on Hema Malini. Bhawana seems to have got all the facts right, whether it is do with people, events or places.

This 200 page book gets alive in a major way mainly when, as expected, details around the blossoming love between Hema Malini and Dharmendra are put in words. Bhawana catches the pulse of the readers well while exploring many told and untold stories about Hema Malini’s Love life.

It’s a known story to many people that Hema’s marriage to Dharmendra was being opposed by their families. But this book revealed the story that Hema’s mother has Girish Karnad in her mind as her daughter’s groom. Another interesting story about Sanjeev Kumar is there who was heads over heel in love with the ‘dream girl’, even Jeetendra, who had otherwise taken Sanjeev Kumar’s proposal to Hema Malini, later fall in love with her as well.

Apart from the love story of Hema’s life many other information is also over there like how she discovered Shahrukh Khan and signed him on for ‘Dil Aashna Hai’ after watching his dynamic act in ‘Fauji’.

Hema Malini is one of the glamorous and brilliant actresses who always maintained a special charisma. While comparing with other actresses like Rekha, Zeenat Aman and others, she has her own identity and personality which always makes her different. Now she is the mother of two daughters who are also in the field of entertainment and I think Hema Malini still has the capability to compete with them.
