Chandigarh: In her long stint in Bollywood Hema Malini has essayed a variety of roles but being mother to her two daughters is what she enjoys the most.

"I am glad that I had the opportunity to play all kinds of roles. But I enjoy the most being a mother to two lovely daughters," said Hema.

The actress along with her daughter Esha Deol and Ranjeet, yesteryears` bad boy of Bollywood, was in the City yesterday to launch a jewellery collection.

On changes in the Bollywood over the years, the mother-daughter duo says it has come of age.

"The old formula of hero, heroine and villain is gone. There are new age directors who are able to project what they want to say," said Hema, who has also tried her hands at direction and is an acclaimed dancer.

"People are experimenting a lot these days," she adds.

"I loved the era of 80s and 90s," said Esha, who is looking forward to her home production `Tell Me Oh Khuda` slated to release in January next year. It will mark her comeback to films after a gap of almost three years.

The film is a family entertainer and will have Esha acting with her father Dharamendra for the first time.

Flaunting a dazzling polki pendant, Hema said a piece of jewellery is a woman`s most valued possession.

"I feel every woman should have atleast one piece of jewellery on her...there are jewellery designers who are coming up with new innovative ideas and the business of jewellery has emerged as a big market in India," said Hema,
who is also taking interest in her television serial "Matti Ki Bano", which is based on joint family system.

Esha along with Hema also walked the ramp here last night to promote the jewellery collection.
