Esha Deol

- Vikram Chandiramani 

Esha Deol is the daughter of yesteryears actor and sitting MP Dharmendra Deol and actress Hema Malini. She's also half sister to actors Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. Esha made her bollywood debut in 'Koi Mere Deil Se Pooche' opposite Aftab Shivdasani. The movie failed at the box office and Esha had to wait a long time for Yash Raj film's  'Dhoom' to come here way. After shedding many kilos and some clothes, Esha Deol's 'Dhoom' act went down well with the cinema goers. 'No Entry', 'Dus' and 'Shaadi no 1' have been her other successful movies at the box office. Esha Deol is currently working in Cash, Alibaug and Darling all of which are expected to release in 2007.

Esha Deol was linked with Aftab Shivdasani, her first hero. Hema Malini apparently disapproved of the match and the relationship was nipped in the bud.

Esha Deol once reportedly slapped actress Amrita Rao when the later made some derogatory remark about her.

Her debut movie was met with some resistance from her father Dharmendra, who eventually came around to the idea. Esha Deol has a younger sister Ahana who has done a few ad films with mother Hema Malini. Esha lives in Mumbai's Juhu area with her mother and sister. Esha is also part of a movie being directed by Hema Malini where she will co star with yester years actress Rekha and Abhishek Bachchan.
