New Delhi: Veteran actor Dharmendra admits he was never in favour of his daughter Esha Deol becoming an actress, but says that now he is proud of her.

"I was not in favour of Esha joining the films as I was concerned whether she would be able to keep up with the pressures of the industry, but I am glad she could handle all that," Dharmendra told IANS.

The father and daughter teamed up for just released "Tell Me O Khuda", which has been directed by Hema Malini.
