Esha Deol Reveals Her Metallic Self!
Esha Deol sported for ten consecutive days upon a camel not for tour but for race and this is something really appreciable. Really you are a tough nut to survive after such a hard experience of camel ride, which is not comfortable even for a professional.
After a long gap we will get to see this sexy bold siren on screen again after her last appearance in ‘Hijack’.
Well there should be some solid stuff from a putar of Bollywood’s steel man Dharmendra, which Esha had proved it by surviving the severe bruises that she got while encountering the camel ride for ten days in her film ‘Tell Me Oh Khuda’. This film is of her mom’s production and is shot in the location of Jaismler and Goa.
They forgot that she was a girl and made her to do the gruesome camel race act, Esha states, “The director Mayur Puri and the fight master Parvez Bhai forgot I was a girl and therefore delicate in my own way. This has been the most physically demanding experience of my life.” Early in 80’s we saw Esha's mother Hema Malini the dream girl of Bollywood starred in her stunning shot on a camel in the location of Rajasthan, humming the soul stringing song ‘Ae dil-e-nadaan’ in Kamal Amrohi's ‘Razia Sultan.’
Now after twenty seven years Hema’s daughter is back to the scene in a different aura of her own. In relation to this view, Esha prankly adds, "In 'Razia Sultan', mom was singing on the camel. I was wincing in pain. For 10 days I rode the camel like a professional for a camel race along with Arjan Bajwa, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Sudhandhu Pande. I was the only girl in the team. But people seemed to forget that. But if I may say so, I had the best calves on display in the typical Rajasthani camel-rider's costume, the kurta lungi and all.”
For Esha, experience on a camel ride was not a comfortable one for her knees and inner thighs were constantly bruised that made her mom look worried about her. Esha states, "The seat on top of the camel is so rough and so unfriendly to comfortable riding, my knees and inner thighs were constantly bruised. When my mother saw I was hurt, she was livid. But I told her to chill. And we continued shooting on the camels for a good week after that. Now I can call myself an expert camel rider.”
She feels that her training in kick-boxing had helped a lot to come out successfully in camel race stunt shot. Well she needed to get physically fit, she adds, "For the last two years I've subconsciously been training for this film. I needed to get physically fit. Which I've done. And I needed to mature emotionally. That too, I think, I've achieved."
Quite a good show without a man Esha! Really encouraging to see you in a new metallic avatar.
