Why target me? I’m doing my job, says Hema Malini

Bollywood actress and Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Hema Malini has lashed out at media and people who criticised her over posting images from a film’s shoot on social media while Mathura was burning in violence and tension by saying that as being a “sincere” person, she is doing her job and feels that people are “diverting attention from the main issue”.


A clash confrontation between the police and encroachers on Thursday caused disruption here after 24 persons, including two senior police officers, were killed in firing by encroachers.

Hema, who represents Mathura constituency in the Lok Sabha, took to Twitter on Saturday to clarify her stance.

In a series of tweets, she wrote: 

After the clashes, various opposition parties, especially the BJP, targetted the ruling Samajwadi Party and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav over “complete breakdown” of the administration and law and order in the state.

Hema further wrote:

She also invited the accusers to visit Mathura and see her work themselves.

She tweeted:

Hema was criticised for tweeting details of how convenient it has become to commute between mainland Mumbai and Madh Island, where she was shooting for the film “Ek Thi Rani”.

This caused Hema to face many negative reactions. The BJP MP then deleted the tweets, and expressed her concern for the situation in Mathura.

Hema also posted photographs of her visiting a local hospital “to enquire about the welfare of the injured police personnel”.

She also met the family members of Superintendent of Police Mukul Dwivedi, who was killed in the violence.
