The veteran actress spoke her heart out in an interview once – “I have made many adjustments in my life. When I was young, I used to watch from the window that all the kids were playing outside while I practised dance. But today, as I look backwards, it seems that as if I had not done sadhana (practise) then, I would not have been successful today.” She humbly gives all credit to her late mother Smt. Jaya Chakravarthy. She further added, “When I started working in films, then after some time, I even felt that I should live my life like a normal girl – get married, settle down… then I decided to get married. Just as the wishes change according to time, our responsibilities also started changing, and we begin to make adjustments in different ways to fulfill them.”

A Song With Kishor Da

Prepping For The Famous Fan Scene In ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’

Captioned: This film shall remain special in my life. My director Ramesh Sippy showing me the famous “fan” scene. It became an iconic scene much later. Strangely while shooting none of us thought that it would become such a blockbuster. Seeta Aur Geeta remains one of my all time favourite film.

The film ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ can be considered as a proud feather on Hemaji’s hat. Her double dhamaka performance as twin sisters was simply extraordinary!

With Her Late Father V.S. Ramanujam Chakravarthy

Captioned: “Wherever you are, am sure you are blessing me”
Happy Father’s Day

Probably one of the rarest pictures of Hemaji with her father.

With Her Late Mother 

Captioned: Thinking so much about my mother – missing her too much! Years have passed (25.06.’04) but the memories of life with her are still so fresh! A mother is irreplaceable & no one can ever fill the gap😢. Sharing the pic from the set of Paraya Dhan with Mom.

With Director Ramesh Sippy On The Sets Of ‘Sholay’

Captioned: Sholay remains one of my favourite for many reasons. Sharing a photo shared by my fan where director Ramesh Sippy is explaining me the scene. And you can clearly see those pages in my hand. I had to rattle off 4 pages of “Basanti” dialogues. This is the scene just before that “tanga” chase scene by Gabbar goons.

With Brother

Captioned: After I came to Delhi my brother insisted we should visit the Ghalib museum about which he had read in the net, as it was Ghalib’s 220th birth anniversary. As both of us have a good knowledge of Urdu, we were excited about the prospect of seeing the place.When the govt is spending so much to look after heritage buildings & monuments like the Taj through ASI, surely some amt can be allotted to preserve a literary heritage like the Ghalib museum? This neglect should be discussed in Parliament and a solution found asap before we lose such treasures!

Brother and sister caught in candid moment browsing through literature in Ghalib museum.
