When Lalu Prasad Yadav came to power in Bihar in the year in 2000, he had claimed that the road of Bihar will soon be turned ‘as smooth as Hema Malini’s cheeks’. Of course, the cheeky remark was brushed aside gracefully but looks like Lalu’s obsession with Hema has not receded any bit over the years.
The MP cum actress was performing in Shri Krishna Memorial Hall in Patna. Flocked as his audiences were big political names from Bihar circle including Lalu Yadav, deputy chief minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and health minister Tej Pratap Yadav -former JD(U) MP Shivanand Tiwary, Patna Sahib MP Shatrughan Sinha and BJP MLA Nitin Navin.
Hema, who was in the city to perform at a Diwali event presented a ballet on ‘Draupadi’. The event was organised by Bihar Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Patna district administration.
After the performance, Malini was presented with a shawl by the Tejawsi Yadav.
Taking his fondness for the actress to another level, Lalu revealed that he has named one of his daughters as Hema. ”She might not know this,” he added.
Hema, on her part could do nothing but smile at the odd praises coming her way.
