Asha Parekh’s Autobiography Launched : The Hit Girl
After Salman Khan launched Asha Pareikh’s autobiographyThe Hit Girl in Mumbai recently, it was Aamir Khanwho made it to the Delhi launch. At the event, Aamir thanked the 74-year-old actress for giving an insight to her enormously prolific career.
He said, “Thank you Asha aunty for opening yourself up because so many film personalities who I’ve met usually say ‘abhi kahan book karengay’…. everyone is really hesitant.”
Veteran actor and Asha Pareikh’s yesteryears co-star Shatrughan Sinha was also present at the event.
Asha Parekh‘s autobiography, The Hit Girl , was launched by Salman in Mumbai recently. The autobiography, written with Khalid Mohamed also includes a foreword by Salman Khan. Some of Bollywood‘s most charming yesteryear stars including Dharmendra, Helen and Waheeda Rehman made an appearance at the event.
Present at the Taj Lands End for the book launch, Salman said, “I don’t think I deserve to be here but feeling really honoured as Asha aunty is very dear to our family. Writing an autobiography, unveiling your life story is very tough. I won’t be able to write one.”
“I think Dharam ji (Dharmendra) will understand why,” he continued.
Salman further continued, “In those days Asha aunty, Saira (Banu) aunty, Helen aunty, among others were so close to each other. They were genuine friends. I think these days girls should learn from them that they lead a great life. I think our generation…we miss that out.”
Asha Parekh said, “When the idea came if I should go for an autobiography, questions came to my mind. However, I speak the truth in my book; I tried to be honest without sensationalising anything. I am thankful to all the people who supported me in the film industry and my fans to keep showing their interest in my work and life.”
Salman also pleaded, “You must buy the book and go by the book, because this generation has led the cleanest life possible, professionally and personally. So, it will be a book of values and principles that has its highs and lows, fun moments and a whole career graph. I think this is something you must read, because it will only elevate you as a person!” The Hit Girl is published by Om BooksInternational.
