|DREAM GIRl MEETS FANTASY GIRL: Hema Malini, Karan Johar, Zeenat Aman|
Tonight's episode of Koffee With Karan (Star World) has both these stars talking about their alleged link-ups, on-screen rivalry and their stance on skin exposure in Indian cinema today.
"When did you first feel that Dharamji is the man you want to spend your life with?" shoots Karan, as he probes Hema Malini to spill the beans about her love affair with Dharmendra. Hema Malini actually admits that she fell for Dharamji's looks when she first set her eyes on him.
"He was the most handsome man I had ever seen. That's when I said to myself 'I would want to be with a man like him'," says an embarrassed Hema.
Moving on to their screen persona, Karan asks about the alleged on-screen rivalry between Hema and Zeenat Aman. " We were very friendly," says Hema Malini. "You mean there was there no rivalry in those days?" questions Karan.
"What happened with Hemaji and myself was our roles were very well-defined. I think Hemaji did very classical and traditional roles, and I personally had a very modern role, so we were never slotted for the same roles," says Zeenat Aman.
"Today Bipasha, Lara and Priyanka are compared to you. Does it feel good?" asks Karan.
"I do take it as a compliment because these girls are lovely, and they are doing good work with good filmmakers," replies Aman.
Adds Hema Malini, "That time only Zeenat had a lovely figure, nobody else."
Both the actresses' also debate about how the Indian film industry has changed over a period of time. "I feel sad looking at today's girls. They have to expose to be successful.
Esha struggled with the idea of exposure. But it's a requirement," says Hemaji, as she expresses her disappointment on the existing scenario.
On the other hand, Zeenat Aman is grilled about all her affairs and alleged link-ups, published across all media.
She also moves on to talk about her struggle when she decided to comeback into films.In the rapid fire round when Karan asks Hema Malini to pick an eligible bachelor for Esha from Vivek Oberoi, Abhishek Bachchan, Tusshar Kapoor or Rahul Gandhi, Hema says Abhishek, while Zeenat selects Shah Rukh Khan as the sexiest man in India!
