Hema Malini is currently the sitting Member of Parliament from Mathura constituency.
In actor Hema Malini's reel life, whenever she was in any trouble, Dharmendra as the lead actor would come to her rescue. In real life too, we can see him supporting her every chance he gets. The actor turned politician was happy to have her husband, veteran actor Dharmendra campaigning on her behalf in Mathura. She is currently serving as the sitting MP from that constituency.
She took Dharmendra's help to woo the Jat community of Mathura who admire him tremendously. Dharmendra attended roadshows and gave a speech in Mathura asking people to vote for his wife. Before the campaign, Hema Malini tweeted a picture with her dear husband and stated that it was a special day for her.
Addressing the rally, Dharmendra spoke about his struggles of becoming a successful actor and the life before it.
"I am the son of a farmer and I have worked very hard in the fields when I was young. Jats work hard in the fields. They also fight for the country and never shy away from sacrificing their lives."
Requesting people to vote for Hema Malini, he came up with his famous dialogue from 'Sholay' in which they both shared screen space.
"Gaon walon Basanti ko agar vote nahin diya to chadh jaoonga paani ki tanki par."
He then appealed to the people to support her in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections saying,
"Vote for Hema Malini. Without your support, we will not be able to take even a single step towards the development of the city."
The actor also praised his wife's hard work and said that the roads, infrastructure and other facilities are much better ever since Malini took up the post as the MP. He also added that Malini wants Mathura to be the eighth wonder of the world and for this, she needs the support of each and every person living in the city.
Hema Malini joined Bharatiya Janata Party in 2004 and served as an MP in the Rajya Sabha. In 2010, she was made the general secretary of BJP. In the Lok Sabha elections of 2014, she defeated Jayant Chaudhary in Mathura and became the MP with a majority. The elections in Mathura constituency are slated to be held in the second phase of polling on 18th April 2019.
