Veteran actress Hema Malini's biography. Hema Malini: Beyond The Dream Girl, written by Ram Kamal Mukherjee, was launched by Deepika Padukone on the former's 69th birthday yesterday.
The book was launched in the presence of Hema Malini's family, including daughters Esha and Ahana Deol and their respective husbands.
The Dream Girl's industry colleagues like Ramesh Sippy, Juhi Chawla and Subhash Ghai were there as well.
While launching her book, Hema Malini said that she shared a "beautiful" relationship with Sunny Deol, Dharmendra's elder son from his first wife.
The 69-year-old actress says there has always been curiosity regarding her equation with Sunny, which has been extremely wonderful and cordial.
"Everyone wonders what kind of a relationship we (Sunny and I) are having. It is very beautiful and cordial. Whenever it is necessary, he (Sunny) is always there, along with Dharamji, especially when this accident happened," Malini said.
The actor-parliamentarian met with a road accident near Dausa in Rajasthan in 2015 on her way from Agra to Jaipur, when her Mercedes allegedly rammed into an Alto. Malini reportedly fractured her nose and suffered injuries on her forehead.
"He (Sunny) was the first person to come and see me at home and he saw that the right doctor is there for the stitches that were done on my face. I was really taken aback to see him showing so much interest. That shows what kind of a relationship we are having," Malini added.
