Hema Malini to star in Seeta Aur Geeta sequel

Sharing is Caring

New Delhi, Oct 31 (ANI): Bollywood’s dream girl Hema Malini is all set to star in Ramesh Sippy’s 1972 blockbuster Seeta Aur Geeta sequel. The idea of making a sequel came to the film’s leading lady Hema earlier this month, which was later taken seriously by the director. Ramesh, who completed a film ‘Simla Mirch’, with Hema and Rajkummar Rao last year, is all for the idea, even after a little more than four decades. Ramesh said, “So what if 45 years have passed since we did Seeta Aur Geeta? I did four films with her including Sholay, the film everyone identifies me with. Nothing has changed over the years. She is still Bollywood’s most beloved actress — a rockstar.” Hema shared that the idea grew in Russia. “I know Seeta Aur Geeta is one of my most beloved films. But I didn’t know it had such a fan-following in Russia. The Russian fans want a sequel. I jokingly promised them I would give it to them. But now, we are seriously looking at the idea,” she added. Interestingly, Seeta Aur Geeta was first offered to Mumtaz who couldn’t do the film because of prior commitments. She recalled, “The film was a rage. To this day, people remember me sitting on a ceiling fan. Don’t ask me how I got there… You have to believe in the madness if you want the audience to believe in it.”
