PM Narendra Modi has penned a “short, crisp and sweet” foreword for Beyond The Dreamgirl, an authorised biography of actress and BJP MP Hema Malini.
The biography of Hema Malini has been written by the former editor of Stardust and producer Ram Kamal Mukherjee. The book will be launched on October 16, when the "evergreen beauty" turns 69.
Its launch also marks the celebration of Hema Malini's glorious run of 50 years in Indian showbiz.
In an interview with a new agency, the writer said, "Our PM Narendra Modi 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 Hemaji and also for me that it is perhaps the first time that an active prime minister has written a foreword for a book on a Bollywood actor."
He also said, "I think Mr Modi liked Hema's inclination towards classical dance-music and how she promotes it at international platforms. I think this is a USP of Hema Maliniji, apart from she being Hema Malini. And I guess that's also what justifies the title of the book."
Beyond The Dreamgirl published by HarperCollins India, will give readers an in-depth look into her life.
