There's a rumour doing the rounds that Esha Deol [ Images ] will be a part of Yash Chopra's [ Images ] next directorial venture which stars Shah Rukh Khan [ Images ], Katrina Kaif [ Images ] and Anushka Sharma [ Images ].
Apparently, Yash Chopra decided on Esha after he saw her in Tell Me O Kkhuda.
Yash Chopra has a long-standing bonding with Hema Malini [ Images ]. She was part of his film Trishul and then again in Veer-Zaara. Esha got a major break in Yash Raj's Dhoom.
When contacted, Esha's mother Hema Malini said, "Yashji did see Tell Me O Kkhuda and really liked Esha's performance. He was kind enough to call up and say how much he liked the film and Esha."
While reliable sources insist that Esha is a part of Chopra's next directorial venture, Yash Raj's official spokesperson denied it.
The Ra.One blitzkrieg has not dampened Hema Malini's spirit. "We were not looking at a 2,000-print release of our film. Nor did we need to recover money to the tune of Rs 200 crores to make a profit, like Ra.one did. I'd be safe if Tell Me O Kkhuda makes 25 crores. It's a much smaller film than Ra.One, and so we were not worried about the number of prints Shah Rukh has put out. We knew all along Ra.One was a bigger film."
