“I made a film recently but it did not work at all, my heart broke. If you tell me to make another film, I will not. If you give me money to make it, then I will. But I don’t want to make a film because it is too much of a risk,” the 63-year-old said. Tell Me... was meant to relaunch the actress’ daughter Esha Deol into Bollywood, but her efforts failed to reap the desired results. Now, while Hema is ready to act and dance, film production is not on the cards for her.

“I am not meant for that, my gestures are different, so I dance. If you to tell me to work in a film, I will, I act well, I can do that. But I will not produce a film,” she added on the sidelines of Morari Bapu’s Nathdwara Festival in Rajasthan.

Hema turned filmmaker with the 1992 film Dil Aashna Hai, starring Shah Rukh Khan and late Divya Bharti.

Hema is an acclaimed classical dancer and gives various spirituality-based performances. However, she feels no one will ever make a film on mythology.
