She’s from one of the most prominent families and her parents alone are legendary for their acting yet Little Deol, Ahana is not going to be putting on the grease paint anytime soon says Papa aka Dharmendra. “The news about Ahana doing a movie is all false and fabricated. She is not interested in acting and she won’t be doing any movies in future as well. Though it is her choice — it has always been and it will always be her choice whether she wants to be an actress or not, but I know my child,” says Dharmendra to TOI in response to reports that Ahana will be in Vikramaditya Motwane’s next film.
The youngest of the Deol siblings, has been out of the limelight pa se keeping herself busy with her Odissi dance performances. Both mother Hema Malini and sister Esha Deol have shared the stage with her. Besides this, she opened her own boutique in May of last year and plans to incorporate a coffee shop as well. With all this happening in her life, what she think about joining the Deol clan in front of the camera? “The idea of becoming an actor never crossed my mind seriously. Given a choice, I’d never show my face on screen. I simply hate it.” says the youngster. So while the news of her signing a film has been squashed by both father and daughter, Hema Malini has told the Deccan Chronicle that Ahana is writing the script for her next film.
Does this mean Ahana will one day wield the megaphone? While Papa says no, Ahana has done filmmaking and editing courses at Subhash Ghai’s film institute, Whistling Woods.
