Bobby Deol’s striking appearance in the Animal teaser has left fans and industry insiders in awe. Among those impressed is his step-sister, Esha Deol, the daughter of legendary actors Dharmendra and Hema Malini.
On a Thursday night, Esha took to her Instagram stories to share the teaser of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s upcoming directorial venture, ‘Animal.’ At the end of the teaser, she couldn’t contain her excitement and wrote, “Wait for the last shot… 🔥…epic @iambobbydeol.” This gesture by Esha Deol reflects the warmth and appreciation she holds for her half-brother, Bobby Deol.
Esha Deol is the daughter of Dharmendra and Hema Malini from their second marriage. She also has a sister named Ahana Deol. Before Dharmendra’s marriage to Bollywood’s “Dream Girl,” Hema Malini, he was wedded to Prakash Kaur, with whom he has two sons – Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. Dharmendra’s marriage to Prakash Kaur dates back to 1954 when he was reportedly just 19 years old, and it is claimed that he married Hema Malini without formally divorcing Prakash Kaur.
The Evolving Relationship
Over time, the dynamics between Dharmendra’s children from his first and second marriages have shown signs of improvement. This transformation in their relationship became noticeable when Esha Deol was seen posing with her half-brothers, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol, during the screening of ‘Gadar 2’ in August 2023.
In a subsequent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Esha was candidly asked about the constant speculations surrounding her relationship with Dharmendra’s sons. She acknowledged the media’s role in catering to public interest but maintained a grounded perspective. Esha stated, “The media knows what the public will like and they cater to them. They are doing their job. I don’t ever take it to heart. I take it with a pinch of salt. It’s something that I am always aware of. I knew we are often spoken of. There are certain things we can talk about and there are certain things we don’t want to talk about and we will not no matter how much we are coaxed.”
About the Film ‘Animal’
‘Animal’ is one of the most anticipated films in Bollywood, featuring an ensemble cast.
