MUMBAI : Esha Deol comes from an influential family of actors. Her half-brothers are Bobby and Sunny Deol, and her parents are famous actors Hema Malini and Dharmendra. However, unlike their situation, Esha's acting career hasn't been easy because of Dharmendra's reservations.

Speaking to the popular news portal, Esha said, “When I wanted to join movies, it was a little… to get the green signal to join films, but once that happened, Boney ji (Kapoor) showed me the script of Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe. I also liked Na Tum Jaano Na Hum, and I was shooting for both these films simultaneously.”

Revealing that it was harder for her to convince Dharmendra than Hema Malini to let her act, Esha said, “My dad. Not because of anything else, but because he is more protective as a male, and he wanted to keep us more private. I was, on the other hand, all excited and ready to fly.”

In an earlier interview with the popular news portal, Esha revealed that Dharmendra was “possessive and orthodox” when it came to her, and that, according to him, “girls should be kept away from the world in a protected way”.

She said, “I wouldn’t say that they have it tough. Yes, there is a different level of challenge and boys too have their own set. As far as my father is concerned, he is possessive and orthodox, and for him, girls should be kept away from the world in a protected way. That was what he must have felt, also knowing how our industry functions. All said and done, we managed and how.”

Esha most recently appeared in the online series Hunter Tootega Nahi Todega. About Dharmendra, he was spotted in Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya not too long ago. Kriti Sanon and Shahid Kapoor played the main roles in the movie. In the movie, Dharmendra portrayed Shahid's grandfather.

Before that, he won numerous accolades for his role with Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi in Karan Johar's Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani. Dharmendra played Ranveer Singh's grandfather in the movie, which starred Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the key roles. His next appearance alongside Agastya Nanda is in Ikkis.
