Filmmaking is a tedious task: Hema Malini

New Delhi: Actress Hema Malini, who recently released her second directorial venture `Tell Me O Kkhuda`, says filmmakaing is a tedious job and she wants to rest for sometime before taking up another project.

"I am happy that my film did well at the box-office and now I would like to take rest for sometime. Filmmaking is a tedious task. I worked tirelessly for almost three years for my film because donning the hat of producer and director at a same time was really tiresome," said Hema, who made her directorial debut with Shah Rukh Khan-Divya Bharti starrer `Dil Aashna Hai` in 1992.

Hema, 63, who was in the capital to promote Malabar Jewellery as its brand ambassador, says being a classical dancer, she wears a lot of jewellery.

"Since my childhood, I have been wearing different kinds of jewellery. As I am involved with classical dance and shows wearing head gears, bangles and neck pieces are something with which I am always associated with," Hema added.

Asked about what kind of jewellery she would like to gift her daughter Esha on her wedding day, Hema said, "Unlike us, today youngsters don`t like too much jewellery. As that would be the wedding day of my daughter, I would like to present her a melange of contemporary and traditional designs which she can wear everytime."
