The Dream Girl of Bollywood looks no less than a dream in the cover photo of the book shot by fashion photographer, Vickky Idnaani. A remixed track from Pramod Chakraborty’s Dream Girl has been composed for a video that includes exclusive bytes of this project.
Hema Malini is loved and respected by everyone in Bollywood and she shares a testament of goodwill with the fraternity that is beyond doubt. “It will be a very big surprise for Hemaji because we have recorded bytes from people whom she would probably not expect,” says Ram Kamal.”While we were planning the book launch on her birthday (October 16), we realized that Hemaji will be completing 50 years in this industry in 2018. So we decided to make it special for her, and took this herculean task to get 50 celebrities to wish her on her biography, birthday and Golden Jubilee year,” says Ram Kamal Mukherjee.
