'Acting runs in my blood'

Rohini Kejriwal, Nov 16, 2012, DHNS
marital bliss Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani.

Bollywood actress Esha Deol and her husband Bharat Takhtani were in the City recently for the launch of a wedding jewellery, — at the event, they even shared their seven promises of togetherness. Metrolife caught up with the couple to find out more about their life together.

While Esha’s marriage has been amazing so far, she feels that the best part about it is getting to spend a lot of time with the family.

Hearing this, Bharat smiles and says, “I come from a joint family and there are always a lot of people in the house. What she’s enjoying is everyone being around her, pampering her and giving her their love. She’s spoilt in the house!”


Esha laughs and adds, “It’s true. I love it! I can actually get up late now. Earlier, I’d have to get up, put on my make up and march to the shoot.”

After Esha’s last film, Tell Me O Khuda in 2011, Bollywood is off the table for a while. “I’m not signing any projects right now. I’ve just got married and I want to enjoy this for a bit. I want to take a break for a few months and see if there are any nice roles coming my way,” says the young star.

“Acting runs in my blood and I’ve been doing it since the age of 18. That’s my first love,” she adds.

Interestingly, her husband is not imposing any dos or don’ts when it comes to her acting career. “That’s her personal choice. I would never interfere in this because every human being has his or her own right to decide about his or her career. I’m never going to be a disturbance in that,” notes Bharat.

Bangalore is a familiar place for both of them, as they’ve visited the City before. “I’ve come here a few times and I feel at home here because I get to speak in my mother tongue (Tamil) with people. This time, I’ve been speaking to the drivers in Tamil and Bharat’s just been wondering what I’m saying,” smiles Esha.

Bharat adds, “When I’d visit Bangalore when I was seeing Esha, I’d ask the drivers
to give me lessons in Tamil. I’d learn something sweet and say it to her and it would make her day.”
