Hema Malini may have made a sweeping statement after retaining her Mathura seat at the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections but her experience with the actual broom remains limited. So when she decided to clean the Parliament premises during a Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, it exploded on the internet. Meme machines couldn't resist themselves and soon, we had the veteran actor all over our Twitter wall in memes.
A Twitter user even decided to ask her husband Dharmendra whether, in real life, Hema ever picked the broom (and he wasn't definitely the only one, wanting to ask this). The veteran actor's response was genuine and pure gold.
"Haan films main, mujhe bhi anaadi lag rahi thi. (Yes, only in films. I also thought she was a novice)," he wrote, with utmost honesty, not knowing what would come next.
While we have no idea what happened between the couple post Dharmendra's comments but it looks like Hema ji does know how to use that broom after all. Dharmendra didn't see this coming, but he clearly regrets writing what he wrote. He is also swearing by god, to never repeat this mistake.
His response, however, won over his fans.
This also reminds us of the time when Hema's pictures from the agricultural farms in Mathura, lending a hand to the women working in the field, went viral for no great reason. Apart from the trolls and memes, she was also heavily criticized for posing with a woman who was carrying a heavy bunch on her head.Read More
