Kisi Shaayar Ki Ghazal, Dream Girl, Kisi Jheel Kaa Kanval, Dream Girl… The Dream Girl of B-town was born in 1948 to a Tamil-speaking Iyengar family, and fifteen years later, she had made her debut as a dancer with a Tamil film. In 1968, Hema Malini made her debut as an actress with the film, Sapno Ka Saudagar and since then, there has been no looking back for her. In more than five decades of her career, Hema Malini’s contribution to the Hindi and Telugu film industry is remarkable. One of the highest-paid female superstars of her time, even today, no one can match up to the poise, grace and ethereal charm she symbolises.
