Hema Malini recently launched her biography Beyond Dream Girl. Authored by Ram Kamal Mukherjee, the book traces back the journey of Bollywood’s dream girl Hema Malini and gives us an insight into her life which involved the who’s who of the film industry. She has talked about a lot, including her relationship with her step sons.
It was a revelation for fans to know that her first conversation with Sunny Deol happened because of none other than Dimple Kapadia. The rumors of an affair between Sunny and Dimple have been flying for some time now. It is also known that Dimple and Hema have been close friends. It is on Dimple’s persuasion that Hema and Sunny talked to each other.
Hema states, that in 1992 when she was making Dil Aashna Hai, she cast her good friend Dimple Kapadia in the role of the mother of the lead protagonist. During the shoot of the film was the time when Hema Malini broke the ice with step-son Sunny Deol. Hema said, ‘I wanted to shoot a paragliding scene with Mithun (Chakraborty) in Dil Aashna Hai, and there was an aeroplane scene which was required for a song sequence,’ Hema tells me. ‘A few days before the shoot, a pilot had met with an accident and Dimple was very scared to do the shoot. She informed Sunny, and out of concern, Sunny came and met me. I assured Sunny that she would be safe, and that’s when I started talking to him.’
During the book launch Hema Malini had already revealed that the biography will feature chapters which talk about Sunny and Bobby Deol. As the title of the book suggests, it is not about dream girl Hema Malini and thus it was mandatory to talk about Sunny and Bobby in the book.
