Because I have brought her up in a different way, given her all the culture, the way she has to be brought up and she wanted to work in films,” Hema Malini said.

“She asked me the question: ‘If you can work in films, papa can work, brothers are working in films, why do you say that it is not good?’ He could not answer anything so he had to keep quiet and she started working,” Hema said.
