This dream girl broke a lot of hearts during her time. She started off with Sapno Ka Saudagar in 1968. It was during the promotion of the movie that Hema Malini got the famous tag of dream girl.
Her next movie was Waris which did not perform well at the box office. After a series of flops, Hema Malini appeared in Johnny Mera Naam opposite Dev Anand. The movie was a overnight success and change the direction of Hema Malini’s career. From then on, she was the actress everyone wanted to work with.
Another remarkable thing about Hema Malini was that she took all sorts of roles. Any role that was rejected by the top actresses was accepted by Hema Malini and some of those roles were major hits. She appeared in over 150 movies so far and never took a serious break. She transformed herself.
From being a nobody to the dream girl then to the top actress. She eventually stopped coming in movies where she played the lead and started coming in movies as the mother. By doing movies like Baghban and Veer-Zaara, Hema Malini redefined stardom and gave us a example of what it is to be a professional actress.
Hema Malini is also a trained dancer and to this day continues to day at charity functions. Her grace is something no one can match. She’s always been involved in her career and nothing hindered her from making it big in Bollywood. She had her fair share of scandals and controversies but she didn’t react to them and continued to do what she loved.
