Esha Deol never used to wear jeans
Hema Malini married Dharmendra in the year 1980. Dharmendra was already married, so it was not easy for him to remarry. The family too had turned against their marriage. Dharmendra even changed religion to marry Hema. Both have two daughters Isha and Ahana Deol. Hema had told in an interview with Simi Grewal that both the daughters did not wear jeans in front of Dharmendra.
Simi Grewal asks Hema, ‘Without Dharmendra ji, you did not face any problem in raising daughters.’ In response to this, the actress says, ‘I knew about it earlier when I married Dharam ji. As soon as I married him, I knew that he would have to take care of two families. So he could give us even less time. But I have never regretted it.
Hema Malini further says, ‘Whenever Dharam ji used to come to Mumbai, he definitely used to come to meet his daughters. He loved seeing daughters in salwar-kameez. That’s why both the daughters used to wear salwar-kameez as soon as the father came and after he left they used to wear jeans again. Dharam ji did not like having daughters in jeans. Isha was also his dearest child. It was not that he did not tolerate it at all, but both the daughters believed his words a lot.
When Dharmendra was furious at the director: Isha had told in an interview, ‘Father did not like me to work in films. But I wanted to be an actor from the beginning. When I told my father, he did not stop me. Once I was shooting for a film and the director kept me with my legs upside down. Papa also reached the set during that time. The father had told the director angrily that how is he hanging my daughter upside down? They could not tolerate all this at all.
