Mumbai: Exciting times ahead for Deol family! Hema Malini and Dharmendra’s daughter, actress Esha Deol will tie the knot with Mumbai based businessman Bharat Takhtani in June this year.

The couple who have been dating for a year got engaged recently in February at Hema’s Bandra residence. An elated Hema Malini confirmed the news of her daughter’s wedding to a tabloid and said, “We`ve decided on a June wedding for Esha. So what if the monsoon may set in? Even the rain Gods will bless my daughter.”

However, the wedding date may be pushed to July 29 if the mahurat is good. A source close to the family said, “Hema believes in the mahurat being auspicious. She will finalise the exact date keeping that in mind.”

What about the venue? Would it take place at Hema’s residence itself? “It’s okay to have the engagement and other small functions in the house. But managing a wedding at home would be too much,” said Hema.

The groom to be is reportedly bonding with his new family and his mother in law is quite fond of him. “Bharat and Dharamji get along really well. We feel we`re getting a son into the family,” said Hema.

Meanwhile, bride Esha is busy preparing for her wedding and won’t be signing any new film for the time being. “She may later get back to movies if the offer is meaty and lucrative,” said the source.
