Hema Malini, a veteran actress and politician, has addressed whether she is comfortable kissing on television like her actor-husband Dharmendra. The legendary actor recently made waves for his kissing scene in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani alongside Shabana Azmi. The scene drew a lot of interest from the audience.
Hema Malini mentioned in one of her most recent interviews that she has yet to see Dharmendra’s flick. However, the actress has stated that she does not mind performing a kissing sequence on screen.
“Kyun nahi karenge, bilkul karenge. (Why not, why won’t I do, will take this up). If it is nice, if it is relatable and gels with the film, maybe I can,” the 74-year-old actress told India.com.
Earlier this month, she told Times Now, “I am sure people have loved the film (Rocky Aur Rani…). I am so happy for Dharam ji, because he loves to be in front of the camera all the time. He loves it.”
Dharmendra and Hema Malini married in 1980. They have two daughters together, Esha and Ahana. Previously, he was married to Prakash Kaur. Dharmendra has two daughters with his previous wife, Vijeta and Ajeita, in addition to sons Bobby and Sunny.
The love tale of Hema Malini and Dharmendra is worthy of a Bollywood blockbuster in and of itself. Several accounts stated that they married after they converted to Islam, however the two have explicitly refuted this.
