Esha Deol is the eldest daughter of celebrated actress and dancer Hema Malini and popular actor of yesteryears, Dharmenra. She inherited her mother’s exquisite good looks and her father’s acting talents. She has two elder step brothers, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol, Dharmendra’s sons by his first marriage, as well as a younger sister, Ahana. She obtained a Masters Degree in Media Arts and a Bachelor Degree In Computer Technology at Oxford University. Before joining the Oxford University, she attended Jamnabai Narsee School, where she became an outstanding soccer player. She represented her school in the National level. She was also trained in Indian classical dance by her mother, a gifted dancer herself. At one point of time, she was presented with the choice of becoming a professional soccer player and opting for a career in films. Her father Dharmendra was dead against her joining the Bollywood film industry. But destiny took its course and now she is one of the most successful actresses in the industry.

 

At the start of her career, Esha had refused offers to act in films like Mohabbatein and Hey Ram. Her debut film was Boney Kapoor's Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe opposite Aftab Shivdasani . The film explores the relationship between a mother-in-law and her daughter-in-law, a victim of domestic violence by her husband. But there was not anything fresh about director Vinay Shukla’s cinematic presentation. Esha displayed confidence and no self-consciousness in front of the camera, but her acting was marred by hamming. The film flopped. But her performance was appreciated with the Filmfare Best Debut Award. This was followed by duds like Kucch To Hai and Kyaa Dil Ne Kahaa. Next the romantic thriller Chura Liya Hai Tumne with Zayed Khan was released. Despite the sleek treatment, the film failed to live up to audience’s expectations and bombed at the box office. For quite some time it looked like Esha lacked the prowess to live up to the distinction of her illustrious lineage. However, her acting left a favorable impression on the gifted director Mani Ratnam who cast her in his critically acclaimed film Yuva as one of the leading ladies. Esha was paired opposite Ajay Devgan as a gregarious college girl named 'Radhika'. Other members of the cast included Abhishek Bachchan , Vivek Oberoi , Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee . Though the film flopped, she Esha garnered a lot of attention. Soon, she shot to fame with her eye-catching outfits and foot-tapping dance numbers in the bike-flick Dhoom. The film was one of the biggest hits if 2004. After that she starred in a Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan joint production, Kaal – a multistarrer spooky thriller. Her next film, Boney Kapoor's No Entry became the biggest grosser of 2005. She followed this up with another hit with the action thriller Dus. Her performance in a grey-shaded role in Vikram Bhatt ’s autobiographical Ankahee, as a jealous and possessive woman in love with a married man, won her rave reviews. Next, she is reportedly working in her mother's directorial endeavor with Rekha and Abhishek Bachchan . Her toned figure, charming dance moves and restrained acting make her one of the most sought after artists in the tinsel town these days.
