On the occasion of party’s foundation day on Tursday, Bharatiya Janata Party’s MP Hema Malini said Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had seen one of his films 25 times. My film Atal ji liked so much.
Vinod Khanna brought Hena Malini into politics….
Hema said “The whole credit to brought me into politics especially into BJP is goes to Vinod Khanna. She said when the then party president L. K. Advani had asked for the campaign, hearing Khanna’s name, her mother also allowed her. Hema told that her first speech was written by her mother. Since then she had started campaigning for BJP often. In 2003, the party gave a big responsibility by becoming a Rajya Sabha member.
Hema said “One day I told office bearers that I talk about Atal Bihari Vajpayee in my speech, but never met him, first let me met with him.
After this, when I went to meet Atal Bihari Vajpayee, so he was hesitant to talk. I asked a woman present there that Atal ji, why are not you talking properly? She told : actually he is a very big fan of yours’. He had seen your 1972 film ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ 25 times. Today to see you suddenly, he hesitate to talk.
