Today, the 16th of October, celebrates the birthday of the original 'Dream Girl' of Bollywood. Today, Hema Malini turns 65.

Malini was born into a Tamil Iyenger Brahmin family to V.S. Ramanujam Chakravarthy and Jaya Chakravarthy. Her mother was a film producer and this served as one of the main reasons why she left her education midway to build a career in the field of acting. She debuted with Tamil movies but had her first major breakthrough in Hindi cinema with Sapnon Ka Saudagar (1968) opposite Raj Kapoor.

From thereon, Malini was seen in many successful films such as Johny Mera Naam, Seeta Aur Geeta, Dreamgirl, Sanyasi, Dharmatma, Pratigya, Sholey, The Burning Train and Andha Kanoon. It has to be acknowledged that a majority of these films were opposite her real life partner, Dharmendra, who she married in the year 1980. It is said that they fell in love during the shooting of
Sholay. Malini and Dharmendra Singh Deol now have two children, actress Esha Deol and Ahana Deol while actors Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol are Malini's stepsons.

After taking a sabbatical from movies to concentrate on her family life, Malini returned to the silver screen in 2003 with Baghban. Costarring Amitabh Bachchan, the film dealt with the issue of aging parents being ignored by their own children. She continued to play smaller roles in other films such as Veer Zaara, Baabul, Aarakshan and Tell Me O Kkhuda which she directed, produced and stared in herself.

Apart from acting, Malini is also an exquisite dancer. Trained in Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi, she is also popular for performing at live stage shows. One such event witnessed her performing at the Khajuraho Dance Festival with her daughters. 

Before we you bid adieu, here is a quick playlist of her most popular tracks.

1. "Nadan Ki Dosti" - Sapnon Ki Saudagar
2. "Koi Ladki Mujhe Kal" - Seeta aur Geeta
3. "Zindagi Hai Khel" - Seeta aur Geeta
4. "Dream Girl" - Dreamgirl
5."Holi Ke Din" - Sholey
6."Haa Jab Tak Hai Jaan" - Sholey
7. "Kabhi Na Kabhi" - Andha Kanoon
8. "Ek Taraf Hum Tum" - Andha Kanoon
9. "Tere Chehre Mein Woh Jaadu Hai" - Dharmatma
10. "Kya Khoob Lagti Ho" - Dharmatma
11."Lodi" - Veer Zaara
12."Holi Khele" - Baghban

Here's wishing our Dream Girl Hema Malini a wonderful birthday once again. BollyCurry simply hopes she always stay blessed with lots of happiness and success in both her career and life.
