One of Bollywood's top divas of today, Deepika Padukone, is reportedly all set to launch the much-talked-about biography of one of Bollywood's top divas from yesteryear, veteran actress and BJP Parliamentarian Hema Malini. The book is called Beyond The Dream Girl.

According to multiple sources, the biography will be launched on Malini's 69th birthday, on 16 October. Journalist turned writer Ram Kamal Mukherjee has penned Hema's journey till now in this book.

From Hema's much gossiped platonic love affair with Jeetendra to the incident of bumping into dashing Dharmendra for the first time — this book claims to have a lot of never-mentioned-before facts. The book is divided into 23 chapters, of which two are dedicated to Hema and Dharmendra's daughters Esha and Ahana.

While Beyond The Dream Girl itself has created a lot of buzz, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's short foreword published in the book has given that much needed hype to this biography.


"Our PM has written very briefly in the book about his feelings for Hemaji. It’s short, crisp and sweet, not rubble and bubble. It’s an honour for me as an author and for Hemaji also that it is perhaps the first time that an active Prime Minister has written a foreword for a book on a Bollywood actor," said Mukherjee, in an interview to IANS.

Hema also has expressed her gratitude through a tweet on Saturday where she said, "I am truly honoured that Narendra Modiji has penned the foreword to my biography." (sic)

'Dream girl' was a famous song from 1977 in a movie of the same name — a prefix that stuck with the popular actress. Born in 1948, Oct 16, Hema Malini turns 69 today.
