She is the dream girl of today, sporty and sensuous. Acting runs in her blood. She is Esha Deol,who made waves with her performance in Dhoom.
A free-wheeling chat with the Deol dudette:
You had slapped Amrita Rao during one of the shoots in Bangkok. So how are you managing to work with her in the film Pyare Mohan?
It’s true that I slapped her because of her misbehavior but I owe her a lot too. She has helped me improve my acting skills. I think I have learnt a lot from her. I feel obliged to her for her contribution.
Does it mean that your relations with her are back to normal?
In fact we both behave like professionals should. I will not say that we are best of friends. We are on talking terms when we are doing some scenes together. We discuss when something is common for both of us on the shooting location.
Isn’t this kind of relation creating any hurdles in the production of the film?
Not at all. We have done our best to keep our personal problems away from the work. We have forgotten what happened in the past and we are now very cooperative to each other for the sake of work. When we areshooting a particular scene together we try to be in perfect harmony.
Dhoom was a big success for you but you were dropped for Dhoom II. Are you disappointed?
I was a little disappointed when I came to know this but then I realised that it’s not the end of the world for me. I know Dhoom gave me a great break in Bollywood and I should not forget to thank Aditya Chopra for that. I learnt that second part is being done in a different way so it might not have the kind
of role which suits me in the opinion of the director.
