ESHA IN NEWS
It all began when a wannabe Roadies contestant named Amol Spykar challenged Roadies’ newest judge that she wouldn’t be able to tolerate him. Spykar took to Twitter and wrote that he was coming to the Pune auditions on a skateboard and that he would hurl abuses at Dharmendra’s elder daughter. He advised her to leave with her head bowed – ‘mundi neeche kar aur nikal jaa’. But Esha Deol was in no mood to respond. When asked at a press conference she said that she did not dignify the threat with a response. She added that nobody was spotted with a skateboard at the Pune auditions and she is still waiting for him to try and mess with her.
She said, “We already have bouncers around.I've been on world tours alone. At a film premiere when a guy tried to act fresh with me, I gave it back to him. This one seems like an attention seeker. If I react to his tweets, it will only encourage him. I'm Dharmendra's daughter, I'm not afraid of anyone.”
The threat simply reminds us of the recent slapping incident that took place with Gauahar who was assaulted by a youth. But Esha seems in no mood to tolerate any such nonsense. And we are sure that if this Spykar does indeed build up the courage to face Esha he will have his ego handed to him on a platter, packed and ready to go.
The festivities are all on Swing in the Deol clan, and everyone’s looking forward to Esha Deol’s big Indian wedding on June 26. The actress will tie the knot with fiancé Bharat Takhtani in Indian fanfare. While the family boasting of actors like proud parents Dharmendra and Hema Malini, half-brothers Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol, and their cousin actor Abhay Deol are all excited for the event, there’s news that Bobby will not be able to make it to the function. He is currently in London. That must really disappoint Esha, as the family is very close to one another. What must be the reason for this absence, we wonder. However, we don’t have an answer, but we assume it must be something very critical for Bobby to miss on his little sister’s big day. However, to make up for Bobby’s absence Sunny and Abhay will be helping with the preparations, full swing. “Both Abhay and Sunny have assured Hema Malini and Dharmendra that they will take charge and attend the wedding,” says a family spokesperson. What bond do the half-siblings share? Says Sunny-Bobby’s cousin Abhay, "More than family, we are friends. I'll definitely be there for Esha's big day."
