Actress-politician Hema Malini started filming for Ramesh Sippy’s light-hearted comedy Shimla Mirchi on Sunday, repots India Today.
‘The first day of shooting for Shimla Mirchi- with my Director Ramesh Sippy who is also doing a cameo in the movie (sic),’ she tweeted Sunday.
The duo together gave hits like Andaz, Seeta Aur Geeta and Sholay.
Shimla Mirchi also stars Rajkummar Rao, who called it an ‘unusual film’. He even expressed his excitement to romance Hema Malini on the big screen.
If reports are to be believed, the story is about how a single mother (Hema Malini) and her daughter (Rakul Preet Singh) fall in love with the same man.
Hema Malini (Born 16 October 1948) is an Indian actress, director and producer, Bharatanatyam dancer-choreographer, and a politician, well known for the roles in Hindi cinema.
Making her acting debut in Sapno Ka Saudagar (1968), she went on to appear in numerous Bollywood films, most notably those with actor and future-husband Dharmendra and with Rajesh Khanna.
Malini was initially promoted as Dream Girl, and in 1977 starred in a film of the same name.
During this period, she established herself as one of Hindi cinema’s leading actresses, noted for both her comic and dramatic roles, her beauty, and her accomplished classical dancing.
