Esha Deol, (Punjabi : ਏਸ਼ ਦੇਓਲ੍, Tamil:ஈஷா தியோல், Hindi:ईशा देओल )(born November 2, 1982) is an Indian actress who appears in Bollywood films. She is the elder daughter of the famous couple of Bollywood, Dharmendra and Hema Malini.
Her performance was noticed, and she won the Lux New Face Award for this movie. Taran Adarsh from indiaFM noted that, " Esha Deol looks pleasant and delivers a sincere performance. However, she needs to brush up her acting skills and get a little more camera-friendly. "
She starred in a number of films over the next two years, but none of them succeeded. She finally had her first big hit in the form of Dhoom in 2004. This was followed by a Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan joint production, Kaal.
Esha played a negative character for the first time in Vikram Bhatt's Ankahee, co-starring Aftab Shivdasani and Amisha Patel. Joginder Tuteja, from indiaglitz noted that, " Esha Deol may not really term 'Ankahee' as the role of her life as a psycho/obsessive/possessive character has been beaten to death since the time Shahrukh Khan started it all in Darr. But it is to her credit that she never once let the grip of the narrative get loose due to any blemish on her part. She may not look the most glamorous to suit the role of a Miss World but still does reasonably well to not come as a caricature.
Esha's portrayal of a notorious and vengeful ghost in Ram Gopal Verma's Darling (2007) was praised all over and applauded with positive reviews. Taran Adarsh from indiaFM noted that, " Esha Deol is excellent in a role that’s nothing short of a challenge. It would’ve boomeranged had it been entrusted to any inferior actor, but Esha is in terrific form here. This should be the turning point in her career.
