Happy Birthday Hema Malini: Sweet glimpses with Dharmendra to her love for dance, Dream Girl’s life in photos

Actor-politician Hema Malini has turned 72 today. She was one of the highest-paid female superstars of Bollywood. Hema was born in 1948 in a Tamil-speaking Iyengar family. She did her early schooling in Chennai and later, when her father moved to Delhi, she attended Delhi Tamil Education Association Senior School. She quit education after Class 11 to commence her acting career. 

The gorgeous actress made her debut as a supporting actor in the Tamil film, Idhu Sathiyam in 1962. Later, she made her Hindi film debut in Raj Kapoor’s Sapno Ka Saudagar in 1968. Soon after, Hema’s iconic beauty, dancing skills and strong personality was noticed by everyone. During the film’s promotion, the sobriquet ‘Dream Girl’ was coined for her.

In 1970, she made her mark in Dev Anand’s Johny Mera Naam and after that, there was no stopping for her. From 1976 to 1980, Hema Malini emerged as the highest-paid female actor of her time. She starred in several hit films like Andaz, Seeta Aur Geeta, Sholay, Trishul, Meera, Naseeb, Satte Pe Satta and several others.

However, Hema Malini’s personal life was constant fodder for the gossip mills. While Jeetendra and Sanjeev Kumar were in love with her, Hema Malini had already given her heart to Dharmendra. Later, her marriage to Dharmendra became controversial. The couple has two beautiful daughters, Esha Deol and Ahana Deol. Hema and Dharmendra are now proud grandparents as their elder daughter Esha has two little girls, Radhya and Miraya, and Ahana has a son, Darien. Hema often spends time with the little munchkins.

Hema Malini often performs shows with her daughters. Hee’s daughters' weddings too were public affairs. In recent times, Hema is the Member of Parliament from Mathura. Further, the evergreen actress was last seen in Shimla Mirchi, which also starred Rajkummar Rao and Rakul Preet Singh.

On Hema Malini's 72nd birthday today, here’s a look at some of her best pictures.
