The He-Man of Bollywood, Dharmendra had tied the knot with Bollywood’s Dream Girl on August 21, 1979. The couple had gotten blessed with a baby girl on November 2, 1981, whom they have lovingly named, Esha Deol. And in 1985, they had completed their family when they had welcomed their second daughter, Ahana Deol. Esha Deol had followed the footsteps of her star parents and had taken her family’s legacy when she had made her debut in Bollywood with the film, Koi Mere Dil Se Pooche. In June 2012, Esha had tied the knot with her childhood friend, Bharat Takhtani and she is now a doting mother to two lovely angels, Radhya Takhtani and Miraya Takhtani.

In the picture, Esha had looked cute as a button and her no smile, straight face had melted our hearts. The little munchkin had donned white frock, twinning with her papa Dharam ji. On the other hand, Dharam ji had looked dapper as always in a white suit and multi-coloured shirt.
Did you know Dharmendra ji was against the idea of Esha Deol becoming an actress? Hema Malini and Esha Deol Takhtani had appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote her book, Amma Mia. On the show, Hema Malini had revealed that Dharmendra ji was against Esha’s decision of becoming an actor. Hema ji had shared, "Esha was interested in extracurricular activities such as sports and dance. Like in our house, we used to do dance practice because of which she started liking it and wanted to be a professional dancer and even make her career in Bollywood. However, Dharam ji didn’t like her daughter dancing or making her Bollywood debut and he had an objection to that."
Hema ji had also revealed what made Dharam ji change his mind and accept Esha Deol’s dancing and her dream of becoming an actor. Hema ji had continued, "Later when Dharam ji got to know the type of Nritya (dance) which I do and how people appreciated me and my work, which fortunately made him change his mind and then he accepted his daughters dancing and also Esha’s Bollywood debut."

He listed a few things and asked whether I’d be able to fulfill those. I’ve turned more responsible after that meeting.
