Veteran actress Hema Malini, who is considered as one of the best classical dancers, created a spiritual ambience through her dance-drama Ramayan, which was presented late on evening of 25th October at the Pushpanjali grounds near Taj Mahal.
The actress, who has trained both her novels in classical dance, believes that item dance songs will not save India or its culture.
“Nritya was my puja. To save our culture we will need to return to classical dance forms and music. Item numbers will neither save India nor our culture. In Bollywood, nobody these days asks new actors whether they know or understand the nuances of classical music," said Hema Malini to IANS.
Produced by Natya Vihar of Mumbai and directed by Hema herself, the drama had music by Ravindra Jain while Suresh Wadekar lent his voice to create a religious euphoria. The programme was organized by Sri Hari Satsang Samiti.
