"We are not that kind of a family."
In July 2023, Esha Deol hosted a special screening of her half-brother Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2.
Now, in an interview with News 18 Showsha, Hema Malini has opened up about the bond that her daughters Ahana and Esha share with Dharmendra’s sons Sunny and Bobby Deol.
She said that the family dynamic has been such that they do not like ‘to take pictures and immediately put it up on Instagram’ but they have always been together.
Speaking to News 18 Showsha, Hema Malini said: “I am feeling very happy, I do not feel it is something new because it is very normal.
“Many times they keep coming home and all but we do not publish it anywhere, we are not the type to take pictures and immediately put them up on Instagram.
“We are not that kind of a family. We are all very much together, always together. Any problem we are always together with each other.
“So, the press got it and it is nice, they are happy about it, and I am also happy.”
She further also talked about the huge success of Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 and said:
“Massive success because people love Sunny a lot. They wanted him.
“I also told him, ‘You have to do the best one now. Do it now’ and he was like, ‘Yes, I will do.’
“He is very sweet you know. He did this picture and I am so thrilled about it.”
Hema also addressed the speculation about her not attending Karan Deol’s wedding.
She said there was a reason she could not be a part of the wedding but Sunny and Bobby have been coming to her house for Raksha Bandhan ‘from the beginning’.
Dharmendra was first married to Prakash Kaur, with whom he has sons Sunny Deol, and Bobby Deol and daughters Ajieta and Vijeta.
With his second wife, Hema Malini, he has daughters Esha and Ahana.
Recently, eyebrows were raised when Hema Malini and Esha Deol did not attend the wedding of Dharmendra’s grandson Karan Deol.
However, Esha Deol did wish the new couple on their wedding.
In an Instagram Story, Esha wrote: “Congratulations Karan and Drisha. Wishing you both a lifetime of togetherness and happiness.”
A few days later, Dharmendra took to Instagram to post an old picture with Esha and wrote:
“Esha, Ahana, Hema and all my darling kids…… loving Takhtani’s and Vohra’s l love you and respect you all from the core of my heart……
Esha replied, saying: “Love you papa. You are the best. Love you unconditionally and you know that. Cheer up and always be happy and healthy. Love u.”
