We all loved Hema Malini’s character of Basanti played by her in the film Sholay, didn’t we? Talkative and pretty yet extremely notorious, Basanti’s character managed to win thousands of hearts. When Hema Malini was asked about who she feels would be the perfect new-age Basanti, her answer was none other than our gorgeous and young Alia Bhatt. Alia is known for her carefree and youthful charm accompanied by a dose of craziness.
“I did the movie when I was very young. So, if I consider the age factor, it should be someone with a mischievous streak and I think Alia has that in her,” said Hema Malini. She further spoke about her daughter Esha Deol’s pregnancy and said that she is very excited about it. ” My daughter is staying with me and I am looking after her as a mother,” said she. ” If it’s a girl, I will teach her Bharatnatyam. If it’s a boy, he will have to learn the Georgian dance,” she added.
However, will Hema Malini be seen in a film anytime soon? At the moment, she is focused on her daughter’s pregnancy and she feels that the acting phase of her life is almost over but would definitely take up something interesting that comes her way. “If anything similar to my role in Baghban or anything comes my way, then I will definitely work in films. I just can’t do any films which come my way,” Malini replied.
