Esha Deol revealed she would never have an arranged marriage

In an interview with Rediff, while promoting her then-upcoming film, Just Married, in 2007, Esha Deol was asked about the reason that made her agree to take up the role. Responding to the same, the actress said that she knew that she would never have an arranged marriage and would probably run away if she’s forced to do that. However, she added that she admires the people who tie the knot with unknown people to please their elders and said:

"The only reason I did this film is because I know I will never have an arranged marriage. If I am told to do so, I will be a runaway bride! I admire those people who are ready to tie the knot with unknown people and do things to please their elders."

Esha Deol shared what marriage means to her

Esha Deol was also asked what marriage meant to her, and she shared that it is dependability on one's partner. However, she also mentioned that sometimes it is unnecessary to depend on others, but she still feels that everyone should experience getting married. In her words:

"Dependability on your partner. I think at times, it is unnecessary to depend on others but I still feel it is something that everyone should experience."

Esha Deol revealed the sole reason she would get married

Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani have known each other since childhood as they studied in the same school. However, they began dating when they grew up. However, in the same interview, when she was asked about her plans to get hitched, Esha revealed that she hadn’t found the right person to settle down with. However, she shared that she wanted to get married because she wanted to have children and said:

"I have not yet found the right man in my life. There are some good-looking ones but not the one for me. At present, I am happy to be single. The day I am ready to share my life, I will get married. Eventually, I know I will get married because I want to have a family. I love kids."
