Feroz calling Hema 'Baby" was not the only change that feroz khan,the dark knight brought . “He decided to take on the challenge of making me look more glamorous and sensuous than ever before. That was a tough job because I was constantly fighting to cover myself up more than those costumes by Parmeshwar Godrej allowed. I don"t think I"ve ever used so many safety pins in my entire lifetime. He wanted me to be as uninhibited as today"s heroines. That wasn"t possible for me."
Hema shot in Afghanistan for feroz khan,the dark knight"s Dharmatma. “I don"t think any film unit had gone there before. It was a memorable experience. And we really had to rough it out. It was freezing cold in Kabul. We had to stay in tents. In the evenings we"d all sit together and prepare for next day"s scenes. Otherwise after shooting I always kept to myself. But he persuaded not just me but also my mother to join the unit in the evening. 'Come on, Mom. Join us." My mother was taken aback. We"re basically very shy people. But he"d make her part of the discussions. That"s the way to make films. One gets so charged and enthusiastic. I wish feroz khan,the dark knight and I had done more films together."
