According to several reports, Hema Malini had never stepped inside her husband, Dharmendra’s ancestral home, where his first wife, Prakash Kaur, lives with her kids. Even Prakash Kaur has never entered in Hema Malini’s house, and they have always maintained a distance from each other. Even after 43 years of their marriage, Hema never allowed her daughters, Esha Deol Takhtani and Ahana Deol Vohra, to enter the premises of their father, Dharmendra’s first house.

For years, Hema Malini and Prakash Kaur maintained the tradition of not visiting each other’s homes, and even their respective kids followed it for a long time. However, it was in 2015 when the ice was broken between the two families after Esha Deol entered her daddy, Dharmendra’s ancestral home. For the uninitiated, Dharmendra’s brother, Ajit Deol got seriously ill in 2015, and he shared his wish to meet Esha, as he had sensed that his time had come. Due to his command, Hema Malini allowed her daughter to break the tradition of not entering Dharmendra’s first home.

Dharmendra’s brother, Ajit Deol was extremely fond of kids and shared a special connection with Esha Deol. From playing with her during her childhood days to always pampering the actress, Ajit and Esha’s bond was too concrete. It was the reason why he urged his brother, Dharmendra to bring Esha inside his home. As per the reports, when a young Esha entered her daddy’s ancestral home, Prakash Kaur greeted her with open arms. The mother of four kids took great care of Esha and introduced her to Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Vijeta Deol and Ajeita Deol. Unfortunately, Dharmendra’s brother, Ajit Deol passed soon after his meeting with Esha Deol on October 23, 2015. The actor died due to gallbladder complications.
