Mumbai (PTI): Veteran actress Hema Malini will share screen space
with megastar Amitabh Bachchan after four years during her cameo in
Prakash Jha's Aarakshan. The ''dream girl'' will be seen
with Bachchan after Babul (2006). Prior to that they both had
starred as an elderly couple together in Yash Chopra's Veer-Zaara
(2004) and Ravi Chopra's Baghban (2003).
"Hema ji joins us tomorrow for the shooting of
Aarakshan...a cameo but all looking forward to her
arrival..Baghbaan remembered," Amitabh wrote on micro-blogging site
Aarakshan is based on caste based reservations in
government jobs and educational institutions. Other than Bachchan,
it stars Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in pivotal roles,
besides, Tanvi Azmi, Prateik Babbar and Manoj Bajpayee. It is
expected to release in August this year.
The acclaimed actress-dancer, who is also a BJP leader, has just
filed nomination from Karnataka for Rajya Sabha. If elected, this
will be her second stint in the Upper House of the Parliament.
