Mumbai: She has been away from the silver screen for a quite some time and Esha Deol, who is making a comeback with mother Hema Malini`s `Tell me O Kkhuda`, says she rejected scripts as she wanted to re-invent herself with this film.

Esha, 28, who was last seen in Shiney Ahuja starrer `Hijack` based on terrorism, says she was looking for a role which could act as a re-launch for her. "I got a couple of offers but I was not keen on them.

I rejected them without a single thought of fear because I wanted to take the risk and portray a character with which I could re-invent myself.

"I took up `Tell me O Kkhuda` because mainly we wanted to revive our production house and found the script promising. I decided to be involved in it wholly and so did not take up any offers from outside," she told PTI. In the film, Esha will be seen sharing screen space with father Dharmendra for the first time.

"The night before the first day of shoot was sleepless for me. I was wondering how the shot would be when I deliver my dialogue in front of dad.

"The first scene which we shared together was an emotional scene and as we both are cry babies, we didn`t use any glycerin for the tears. It came out naturally," she reminisced.
