According to MSN/Lehren and her biography, "Hema Malini Beyond the Dream Girl", by Ram Kamal Mukherjee, the dancing superstar from South India was described as "Raj Kapoor's dream girl" in the posters of the film as well as during her launch promotions in those days.
Deepika also spoke about her her role as Queen Padmavati and said it has been one of the most memorable roles of her career. While the film did not go on to become a great hit (it didn't flop either), it definitely was a tribute to The Dream Girl of Bollywood, Hema Malini.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has penned a "short, crisp and sweet" foreword for "Beyond The Dreamgirl", an authorised biography of actress and BJP MP Hema Malini. It's short, crisp and sweet, not rubble and bubble.
The first full-length biography of Hema Malini titled Beyond The Dream Girl will also be launched today. She added, "I can't say that you have to remove that Dream Girl tag from me, the industry gave it to me".
In 1977, a film called "Dream Girl" was produced with Hema Malini and Dharmendra in lead roles.
"It is divided into 23 chapters, covering her childhood, teens, Bollywood, rise as an actor, romance, colleagues, marriage, her second innings, launching Shah Rukh Khan in "Dil Aashna Hai" - which she directed - her ballet, her political journey and spiritual journey". Hema Malini started getting an appreciation for her work.
The 31-year-old actor shared her experience of playing Rajput Queen Rani Padmavati. Her bold dialogues exemplify her character in the film. She further said that it was hard to find a partner who understands you.
