Esha looks for variety

Esha Deol, whose last releases Cash and Darling sank without a trace at the box office, says that she has become selective about picking up projects. “I was not very selective earlier. I have a large heart and I can’t say no to my friends. However, with time, one has to realise the importance of picking up the right kind of projects,” she says.

The actress says she is now looking for variation in her roles. “I want a director to come with a script, which can bring out the bratty quality in me on-screen. I want to play a different role every time.” Discussing the possibility of working with mother Hema Malini and sister Ahana, she said, “I would love to share screen space with mom. However, nothing is planned yet. I am waiting for the right script to come my way. As far as Ahana is concerned, if she wants to cast me in her movie, I will work with her.” The actress is also a trained dancer. “I have been dancing since childhood and it is very close to my heart. Dance is a different career altogether. I do a lot of shows. Recently I performed at the Jagannath temple. It is the spiritual side of me,” the young actress says. Her upcoming projects include a comedy and a film opposite Shiney Ahuja called Hijack.
