Actor Hema Malini is a trained classical dancer who continues to mesmerise audience with her expertise in the craft. The actress will be doing a special performance on the Ramayana at the Ram Mandir inauguration at Ayodhya on January 22. The inauguration ceremony will be a grand affair and will be attended by celebrities from the field of cinema, sports, politics, and more. The temple will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

Hema Malini who is also a BJP member visited Ayodhya on Wednesday. At an event in the city, the actress spoke about her performance at the inauguration ceremony. "I have come to Ayodhya for the first time. I am going to perform in the Ramayana as Sita. This programme has been organised by Swami Rambhadracharya. He has organised a 10-day programme," she said. 

"I am fortunate to be here during this time. The whole of Bollywood is 'Ramamay'... The artists are singing Ram songs. I also sang a Ram Bhajan last year. Everybody is preparing everything for Lord Ram," she added.

When asked if there should be a grand Krishna temple at Krishna Janmasthal in Mathura, Hema Malini said, "It should definitely be there. Mathura and Vrindavan are cities with temples. There are a lot of temples but years ago, Krishna Janmasthal was destroyed and a masjid was built there. So there is an objection among the people." Actor Hema Malini is the BJP MP from Mathura. 

"It would be nice if this is solved because it belongs to Lord Krishna. The 'Janmashtal' is Lord Krishna's place... There is a beautiful temple. But it would be much better if something else was done," she added.

The Pran Pratishtha ceremony will be held in Ayodhya on January 22. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with several other leaders, will attend the event. Several celebrities and noted personalities have also been invited to the ceremony.  Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth, Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana, Mohanlal, Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan and many more personalities from the filed of cinema have been invited for the Ram mandir inauguration ceremony.
