Mumbai, Feb 13 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS): Bollywood actress Esha Deol, elder daughter of veteran B-town actors Dharmendra and Hema Malini, got engaged with boyfriend Bharat Takhtani in a quiet ceremony on Sunday.
Hema Malini told reporters that the ceremony was a private affair.
She said that she was ‘happy’ for her daughter and that Bharat is a ‘nice person’.
According to reports, close friends of the family attended the ceremony on Sunday.
Actor Jaya Bachchan was reportedly seen at the event.
Esha had been dating Takhtani, who is a businessman based in Bandra, for past 13 months but the two never really confirmed their relationship in public. However, lately, the couple had been spotted at various events together.
Esha was never really able to take her career to heights despite being the daughter of two of the finest actors in the industry. Her debut film ‘Koi Mere Dil Se Pooche’ was fairly successful. However, she gave quite a few flops thereafter.
She was last seen in ‘Tell Me O Kkhuda’, a flick produced and directed by her mother to re-launch her. But it too failed to garner support for her at the box office.
