The foreward of the book is written by India's PM Narendra Modi.
Hema Malini's daughters Esha and Ahana Deol were also present at the launch along with their respective husbands. However, her actor husband Dharmendra wasn't there. Deepika Padukone wore a elegant red Banarasi sari by Sabyasachi and complimented her look with gold necklace and earrings. Though, Hema Malini opted for a blue sari.
Here are the pictures from Beyond The Dream Girl launch:
Hema Malini, who campaigned for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate in the Lok Sabha elections in Gurdaspur, Punjab (1999), is currently a BJP MP from Mathura constituency. "Our PM has written very briefly in the book about his feelings for Hemaji. It's short, crisp and sweet, not rubble and bubble. It's an honour for me as an author and for Hemaji also that it is perhaps the first time that an active Prime Minister has written a foreword for a book on a Bollywood actor," Ram Kamal Mukherjee told media.
On a related note, Hema Malini debuted in 1968 with Raj Kapoor's Sapno Ka Saudagar. She is the star of films like Seeta Aur Geeta, Sholay, Dream Girl and Satte Pe Satta and also an accomplished classical dancer.
