Hema Malini: Basanti will sell you!

As the actor becomes a mother-in-law for the first time today, we take a cheeky look at her most iconic dialogue

Today (June 29) is a day to remember for Hema Malini. The Dream Girl has finally got her real life Jamai Raja, as her elder daughter Esha Deol tied the knot with businessman Bharat Takhtani earlier this morning. As Hema sheds celebratory tears at the wedding, we return to her most memorable onscreen character Basanti and the funny lines she had in Sholay. Wethink that when translated into English, they are even funnier. What do you say?

Basanti to Veeru: Tumne sochaa yhe ke hum to gaaon ke rahanewaale hain. Is liye ham ko akal to hai nahin. Aurtum hame bana loge ulloo. Tum bahut hoshiyaar samajhte ho apne aapko magar Basanti tum jaison ko haat me bech kar aayegi.. haan.

Basanti to Veeru: You thought that we are village’s residents. So we brains not have. And you us make people owl. You very clever think of yourselves but Basanti the likes of you will in market sell and come, yes!
