Veteran actress Hema Malini will grace the Indian Idol 12 sets this weekend. Previews of the episode were shared by makers, where the ‘Sholay’ actress was seen sharing lots of interesting stories from her six decade long career, as well as her love story with actor Dharmendra.

Talking about the time she was dating Dharmendra, she revealed while they were filming a song together, unexpectedly Hema Malini’s father accompanied her for the shoot, to ensure that she would not spend time with Dharmendra alone.

“Usually my mother or my aunt used to accompany me on shoots but during the shoot of one of the songs my father accompanied me as he was worried that me and Dharam ji shouldn’t spend some time alone as he knew we were friends. I remember this when we used to travel in a car my father used to immediately sit next to me but even Dharam ji was no less he used to sit in the next seat,” she said.

Despite this, the veteran actress was also seen dancing to her classic number. After the performance on ‘Dream Girl’ and ‘Tere Chehre Mein Jaadu Hai’, contestant Danish Khan requested Hema Malini to dance with him.

She said: “Danish, your performance is so amazing that it has surely attracted me towards the stage to perform with you.”

Later the performance on the song Dream Girl was praised by everyone present on the sets.

Danish said: “It was a fascinating moment for me to perform with the Hema Ma’am. This is an unforgettable moment of my life and I would like to thank Indian Idol Platform who had given me so many opportunities to explore myself.”
