`Tell Me Oh Khuda` is about a young girl`s passionate quest to know the truth about her father and how she character lands up in many places like Rajasthan, Turkey and Goa in her journey. The star cast also includes Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Farooq Sheikh, Arjan Bajwa and Chandan Roy Sanyal.

This is what the film is all about," Malini said.

The 62-year-old actress described the platform of IIFA as spectacular.

Malini who is also known for her dancing skills, said, "I am a very passionate person. I was looking for a wonderful script to direct a movie again and am glad I found it."

The movie, which will also sees Esha performing dangerous stunts, created a fear amongst the parents, to which Dharmendra said, "Even though I have done many stunts myself in my younger days, I was worried for her. When I asked her why she did the stunts her self, she told me she too is brave enough," said the proud father.

Dharmendra who has two sons Sunny and Bobby Deol with his first wife and has acted with them in `Apne` and `Yamla Pagla Deewana`, hopes that his fans accept his film with daughter Esha in the same manner.
