Hema Malini will be seen together again with Amitabh Bachchan in Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan. These two veterans have been paired in Babul (2006), Yash Chopra’s Veer-Zaara (2004) and Ravi Chopra’s Baghban (2003).
Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan film deals with the issue of caste-based reservations and stars Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in pivotal roles along with Tanvi Azmi, Prateik Babbar and Manoj Bajpayee.
Hema Malini does not have any meaty role in the film but appears in an important cameo along with Amitabh Bachchan who is playing the role of a professor.
The film is due for release in August. Prakash Jha’s last film Rajneeti was a hit with the audience and also won critical acclaim
