Recently, in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Esha Deol revealed the reason behind her father, Dharmendra not allowing her to be a heroine in the Hindi film industry. She said that she wanted to join movies, but she found it difficult to convince her father about the same. Esha stated that it was because he was protective as a male, but she didn't understand it as she wanted to fly. Esha was quoted as saying:

"My dad. Not because of anything else, but because he is more protective as a male, and he wanted to keep us more private. I was, on the other hand, all excited and ready to fly."
