Esha Deol and Ahana Deol are Dharmendra’s daughters from his second marriage with Hema Malini. Dharmendra was earlier married to Prakash Kaur with who he has two sons – Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
Dharmendra and Hema Malini’s daughter Esha Deol does not do as many Bollywood films anymore but before she partially hung her boots, Esha Deol had some memorable roles she played in Dhoom, Kaal, No Entry, and Dus, among others. Throughout her career, Esha Deol has been quite vocal about her family’s conservative point of view towards her acting career. Now, in a recent interview, Esha Deol recalled her iconic bikini scene in Dhoom, for which she asked for permission from her mother Hema Malini.
During an interview with Zoom, Esha Deol said, “Of course I had to get permission from my mum about (the bikini). I felt I needed to take it, but when I went and asked, she asked me, ‘Are you seriously asking me something like this? Don’t you go on holidays with friends and wear a bikini on a beach?’ and I know that the people who I was shooting with, I was in good hands.”
Esha Deol also recalled the love she received for her role in Dhoom. Esha Deol said, “It was one of the most lovely, fun scripts ever, and the role of Sheena was very much resonating with me; tough chick, bindaas, and bold. Somewhere,I am still that. I was all of that and of course, I had to look toned and work out. I have always been athletic, and genetically, I have been blessed with a good physique I feel, so I had to just work harder on that and achieve what my producer Aditya Chopra wanted and the audience loved it.”
For those who are unaware, Esha Deol and Ahana Deol are Dharmendra’s daughters from his second marriage with Hema Malini. Dharmendra was earlier married to Prakash Kaur with whom he has two sons – Gadar 2 star Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
