Esha Deol is geared up for her comeback with a short film titled Cakewalk that's helmed by Ram Kamal Mukherjee. The film will be releasing tomorrow and the premiere will happen at Atria Mall. Esha's parents, veteran actors Dharmendra and Hema Malini will be there to cheer for her as it's going to be a really big day in her life.
So, ahead of her comeback, we caught up with the actress at Hema Malini's Juhu residence. And as we settled down for a hot cup of tea, she revealed that her second baby is due sometime in monsoon this year and we assume it's around July-August. As she continued speaking on babies and marriage, she made quite an amusing revelation around her culinary skills. Well, let us inform you that she plays a chef in Cakewalk. So, on similar lines, she revealed that she learnt cooking before marriage just so that she could impress her husband and in-laws. She stated that the Goan prawn curry is a favourite in the household.
The biggest revelation made by Esha was when she spoke about Bharat's (husband) disappearance from her life for a few years. Thankfully, he returned and they reunited. Speaking of their first baby Radhya, Esha revealed that they were initially struggling a lot to finalise on a suitable name for the baby, and suddenly one fine day, out of nowhere, Esha came up with the name Radhya and said it aloud. Bharat took fondness for the name and as they googled its meaning (Radhya means to be worshipped) they instantly fell in love with the name. That's how Esha came up with the name. Dharmendra and Hema Malini were on cloud nine, naturally!
Esha also spoke about a pact between herself and her husband and it contains that one of them has to be with the baby. So, when she was doing Cakewalk, Bharat was a hands-on father. Cakewalk was largely shot in Kolkata and that's when we asked her if she would take the baby on set and she revealed about the pact.
We also touched upon a few sensitive points like the films which didn’t work for her, Darling and Hijack to name a few. She bravely took those questions on the chin. The interview concluded by Esha saying (after the cameras had been switched off), "You ask me a lot of questions which only you can ask."
