I`ll not quit dancing: Esha Deol

Mumbai: Esha Deol is hardly seen on the big screen, but the recently-married actress, a trained Odissi dancer, says she will never quit dance.

"It`s (dance) a convention passed on to me and Ahana (sister) by maa (Hema Malini) and I will continue doing it. Dance is something that I am never going to quit," the 31-year-old said here.

Esha, who tied the knot with her businessman beau Bharat Takhtani June 29, was present at a Dahi-Handi celebration for Krishna Janmashtami here Friday.

She performed Manglacharan, a popular style of Odissi, at the event.

So far, the actress had only performed the dance style with her mother Hema Malini and sister Ahana, but she delivered a solo performance this time.

Esha, a lord Krishna devotee, was more ecstatic as she got a chance to perform on the god`s birthday.

"Since childhood, I have been a true devotee of lord Krishna. We (Bharat and I) even got married in Krishna`s mandir (temple), so maybe it was his (lord Krishna`s) call that I come and perform over here," she said.

On the big screen, Esha was last seen in ‘Tell Me O Kkhuda’, directed by her mother. It was flagged as Esha`s comeback film, but it failed to click at the box office.
