After almost 24 years, the superstars of yesteryears - Dharmendra and Hema Malini may share screen space again! The duo might be seen together in Pritish Nandy's upcoming flick Hum Aise Hi. An out-and-out comedy, the film will be directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.
Hema Malini and Dharmendra were reckoned as the most romantic couple of their times. Last seen in Kamal Amrohi's Razia Sultan in 1983, the two have worked in 26 films together. Only after Hema gave birth to their first child Esha, Dharmendra decided that he will not work with Hema anymore. But with daughter Esha all grown up and well-footed in the industry, Hema was yearning to work with Dharmendra again.
So, when the script of Hum Aise Hi was narrated to Hema, she was more than willing to be a part of it. Then, Mahesh Manjrekar went to meet Dharamji. He liked the role, but when he learned that Hemaji would play the role of his wife, he was somewhat hesitant about accepting the offer.
As the buzz has it, Mahesh has convinced Dharmendra to play the role with Hema, and the two will soon be seen together. Bipasha Basu will also be seen in the film. Mahesh is also trying to rope in John Abraham. But the cast is yet to be finalized.
Hum Aise Hi is a story about a middle class Maharastrian mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. It will go on floors soon after the team gets a nod from Dharmendra.
