Talking about Esha and Ahana’s childhood memories, Hema Ji then spilled some of the family secrets and revealed that Dharmendra never wanted Esha to be a part of the Bollywood industry.
“Esha was interested in extra-curricular activities such as sports and dance. Like in our house, we used to do dance practice because of which she started liking it and wanted to be a professional dancer and even make her career in Bollywood. However, Dharamji didn’t like his daughter dancing or making her Bollywood debut and he had an objection to that,” Hema said.
Later Dharmendra made his peace with it and Esha debuted in Bollywood.
