Celebrity or not, the feeling of holding one’s grandchild is indescribable. Actor Dharmendra’s daughter Esha has just become a mother, and he couldn’t be happier. “It feels wonderful to hold that bundle of joy. Esha has always been very close to my heart. Ahana (his younger daughter) is already a mother. Since she had a son, Hema and I are happy Esha has a daughter to complete the family,” he says, with that innate shyness. Would he be spending time with the newest member of the Deol family? “Of course! As much as possible. Now that I am not working that much, I like to be around my children and grandchildren. I also like writing poetry,” he says.
Any chances of a memoir? That would be so interesting! “It may be interesting to the readers. But my life is not for public display. I’ve to safeguard the feelings of all those who love me. I am happy living my life rather than re-living it in writing,” says Dharamji.
