Actor Hema Malini, who was honoured at a film festival in Russia recently, was pleasantly surprised when she found out that people there are still crazy about her 1972 film Seeta Aur Geeta.

Actor Hema Malini’s popularity transcends all boundaries. Not just India, she has fans all over the world, and this was evident when she was honoured at the 4th Indian Film Festival of Russia (IFFR). Hema was pleasantly surprised to see that people are still crazy about her films in Russia, especially her 1972 double-role film Seeta Aur Geeta.

Responding to the immense love she received, the 68-year old actor says, “People in Russia are still crazy about this film. They pronounce it Zeeta Aur Geeta as they cannot pronounce Seeta Aur Geeta! (laughs). I assume that if I make a sequel of the film even after all these 40 years, my Russian fans will be the first ones to go and watch it.”
