New Delhi: Being a star child has its own pros and cons, says Esha Deol, the elder daughter of yesteryear stars Dharmendra and Hema Malini.

"I don`t take pressure on myself, people put pressure on me and it`s not just. It could be Abhishek (Bachchan) or any other star kid. Right from our first film we are compared to our parents, who have done 200 films. Kids can`t be a carbon copy of their father or mother," Esha told IANS.

But the actress, who was seen in "Tell Me O Khuda", did point out the finer points of being a star child.

"There is pressure, expectation, comparison but there is also a very nice thing -- being a star kid, we are always very protected and no one can mess around," she added.
