Ramesh and Hema collaborated first for Andaz, a romantic drama. Directed by Ramesh, it also featured Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, and Simi Garewal. Their next project was Seeta aur Geeta, a comedy drama, directed by Ramesh. Apart from Hema, it also starred Dharmendra and Sanjeev Kumar.

The iconic Sholay, helmed by Ramesh, became a cult classic. It also featured Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Sanjeev Kumar, and Amjad Khan. 

Hema shares a warm bond with Ramesh as on her last birthday, he was one of the guests at her party. In October last year, Hema had shared pictures on Twitter featuring Ramesh, Sanjay Khan, her husband Dharmendra, and their daughter Esha Deol. She had captioned the post, "Birthday celebrations at home with family and few close friends."
