When Hema stood up against Dharmendra after he told daughters to not learn dance

Hema Malini had once revealed that Dharmendra was not on board with the idea of their daughters Esha Deol and Ahana Deol learning dance. Besides being a great actor, Hema Malini is also known for her dance. The actor is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and has ensured her daughters, Esha Deol and Ahana Deol also learned the classical dance form. However, did you know their father, actor Dharmendra was initially against Esha and Ahana learning dance? 

In 2011, during an interview with a magazine, Hema revealed that while she had a modern approach to parenting, Dharmendra came from a conservative school of thought. He didn't want them to learn dance but Hema was not on board with his ideology. 

“Initially he was so conservative that I was shocked! He would tell the girls not to wear short tops with tight-fitting jeans, and I would be like no, you live in an ancient time! If the girls were dressing up or applying makeup, it was a natural thing to do at their age. As a father, he used to be vexed that the girls would join the film line. So sometimes I had to intervene and tell him not to interfere in all this,” she said, speaking with Good Housekeeping
