36 years ago on this day a film was released called Hum Tere Aashique Hain losely based on the story of My Fair Lady.
Produced and directed by Prem Sagar and written by KKShukla and Ramanand Sagar.
Hema Malini played the role of Ramkali/ Elisa Dolittle while Jeetendra played Dr Anand/ Professor Higgins.
I remember being sent to the mahurat of this film as an intern by my editor and stood in a quiet corner at Mehboob Studio watching Hema Malini dressed in a gown and hat give coy glances to hero Jeetendra.
Those were days of elaborate mahurats after which the shooting began immediately.
Unfortunately the film did not click at the box-office but Sagars continued to make films with Hema Malini and Jeetendra hema continued to make a successful pair.
