She is the dream girl of Bollywood who mesmerized many with her beauty and dancing skills. Despite of gaining immense popularity and success in the Hindi film industry, loneliness never stopped following her. On the occasion of her 69th birthday, Hema Malini launched her biography Beyond the Dream Girl. In the biography, she revealed how her professional success interfered her personal life.
“First of all, I don’t even know if I am supposed to be (called) number one. You don’t realise if you are number one or not. It is the media that tells you where you are, at least that’s how I got to know because I was all the time busy shooting,” the actor said.
Hema Malini further went on to say, “Of course, it is a lonely place, in many ways. Even in personal relationships. You are working hard the whole day, then you come back just to sleep and leave early morning for work. I don’t know how to explain. When it comes to your personal life, even your parents want you to settle down. My parents started looking for a guy for me. A lot of suitors came to see me. But we couldn’t have a match with them. We wanted to but they couldn’t reach the position I was. That’s the difficult part. The fact is that you become so big, it is the most uncomfortable and difficult place to be in and I have stayed there for a long time.”
The biography which has been written by Ram Kamal Mukherjee also talks about the loneliness which Hema Malini experienced with success.
