Dharmendra and Hema Malini’s daughter, Esha Deol had made her debut in Bollywood with the film, Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe in 2002. She had tied the knot with her businessman boyfriend, Bharat Takhtani in 2012. The couple is blessed with two daughters, Radhya Takhtani and Miraya Takhtani. Esha had taken a sabbatical to give her full attention and love to her daughters, and now, she opened up on her motherhood experience.
After the birth of her firstborn, Radhya, Esha Deol had made her come back with a short film, Cakewalk in 2019. During her second pregnancy, Esha had written a book on her experiences of motherhood. In July 2021, she had announced her next project with her Yuva co-star, Ajay Devgn, ending her sabbatical. To announce the same, Esha Deol Takhtani had written, "Happy to share with you all that I am returning in front of the arc lights opposite Ajay @ajaydevgn who has been a fabulous co-star to me in many films, in the web series - "Rudra - The Edge of Darkness"."
As Esha is all set to make her comeback, in a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, she talked about how her life changed after becoming a mother to two daughters, Radhya and Miraya. She said, “Then I settled down in my 30s, got married and then babies happened. That’s also been a beautiful phase embracing motherhood, I think every woman should experience motherhood to its fullest. I had my second Baby Miraya that’s when I wrote a book. On my first-time experiences as a new mother. That was again something I felt I wanted to share my experiences with all new mothers.”
When asked if becoming a mother for the second time was easy as compared to the first time, Esha said, “It’s like the rehearsal take and the final take. Very much prepared, especially your core people, during that time when the first baby is born you try and get the same people around. For moms like me who have had kids in a shorter gap, the first one is also small and your attention is going to the first one as well and then you have a newborn baby also. So we have to really be at it. That time is the most beautiful and most hard-working time for any mother.”
In September 2020, Esha had introduced an Amma Mia filter on Instagram, promoting her book. She had tried the filter, and had got a response on “What type of Mom are you?” to be “Strong”. Esha had agreed with the answer. She had captioned the video as “Super excited to bring to you my first filter the “AMMA MIA FILTER” Wanna know what type of a mom you are? Go check out my Amma Mia Filter. It’s time to have some fun with the #ammamiafilter that’s specially dedicated to all the #mothers #ammamia #filter #momlife.”
On the work front, Esha Deol Takhtani was last seen on the silver screens in the film, Kill Them Young in 2015.
