Veteran actress-turned-politician Hema Malini is time and again seen sharing interesting anecdotes about her career and personal life with her fans and followers. Recently, Hema left everyone shocked when she revealed how a filmmaker once wanted her to take off the pin from her saree so that it would fall.
Hema made her acting debut in the 1960s and in her career spanning over five decades, she has been a part of more than 100 films. It was in 2004 that she officially joined politics with the Bharatiya Janata Party and at present, she is serving as the member of Lok Sabha from Mathura constituency.
Hema reflected on how filmmaking has evolved and become a difficult process today, and expressed that she does not think she would work in films again.
When director wanted Hema to remove her saree pin
During a recent interview with Lehren, without taking names, Hema mentioned how a director had once asked her to remove her saree pin so that the pallu could fall off.
She revealed how she always had her saree's pallu fastened with a pin. "He wanted to shoot some kind of a scene. I always put a pin on my saree. I said, ‘saree niche gir jayegi’. They said 'That’s what we want'," recalled Hema.
She also revealed how Raj Kapoor approached her to do the film 'Satyam Shivam Sundaram' despite him knowing that she would never do it. She added that her mother too was a part of the conversation and she nodded her head in dismissal over Raj Kapoor's request.
