Dubai: Bollywood’s original dream girl Hema Malini, who is known for making bold choices in her personal and professional life, is a huge admirer of Meryl Streep.
The 63-year-old may have enjoyed a successful reign in the ‘70s and ‘80s, but she still believes that she’s not as lucky as Hollywood’s Meryl Streep.
“I consider myself lucky, but she’s luckier than me. I watch all her films and I feel, ‘why can’t they make films like these in Bollywood?’ But I suppose, they have to Indianise a lot, such films may not work in Bollywood,” Gulf News quoted Malini, who was referring specifically to the iconic, illicit romance The Bridges Of Madison County, as saying.
“Those ideas are too Western. I’d love to do a Bridges of Madison County. But opposite me also, there should be a big hero — bigger than me. Except Bachchan there’s nobody else. I wish many other out there like Jitendra, Rajesh Khanna — all would be out. Where are they?” added Malini.
