Hema Malini’s love for dance is well-known. In her bid to promote Indian dance forms, the actor has invited the National Ballet of Georgia, Sukhishvili, to perform in Mumbai at Synergy – an Indo-Georgian dance fusion. The event will be held at the Jio Garden arena in BKC today. And the who’s who of Bollywood including Shah Rukh Khan, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Rani Mukerji and Tamannaah Bhatia will be lending their support to the actor.
Khan and Malini go back a long way — the actor was the lead in Malini’s directorial debut, Dil Aashna Hai (1992). One to cherish his relationships, the superstar assured Malini that he will be by her side on her big day. A source close to the danseuse says, “Shah Rukh had said yes to her film instantly, back then. And things haven’t changed in the last 25 years — one call from her and he said he would be there for her event, no matter how busy he is.”
Dixit and Mukerji, who have often wowed the audience with their dancing abilities on screen, have expressed their excitement to be part of the show. The source adds, “Sridevi is currently recovering from a viral attack, but she has promised Hemaji that she will make an appearance if she feels better.”
Malini adds, “I have invited all my colleagues from the film industry and I will be the happiest if they come.”
