In a recent interview with a news channel, Bollywood’s all-time ‘dream girl’ Hema Malini confessed that Dharmendra comes from a very conservative family and that he had initially opposed his daughter Esha Deol’s entry into cinema.
Hema Malini added that Dharmendra had also opposed to teaching dance to her daughters. She said, “Dharamji was not even comfortable with her learning dance though he later softened his stand. He even used to tell me that I must not teach her dance.”
Now that the original ‘Basanthi’ is all set to re-launch her daughter, she said that Esha is re-entering Bollywood after a break with her upcoming movie ‘Tell me O Kkhuda’. The movie, directed by Hema Malini also stars Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor and Farooq Sheikh. She said, “It was a very nice experience to work with them in a film which has such a powerful story.”
