Mumbai, Oct 17 (IANS) Esha Deol says she is excited about moving back into her Juhu bungalow that was under renovation for the past one year. She says all her best memories are associated with that house.
'We miss our old home. That's where all our best memories are. That's where Ahana and I grew up. And that's where all of mom's friends from the industry stay. So, yes, we plan to move back as soon as the renovation is done. One of the main problems in our Juhu home was the waterlogging in monsoon. The elevation work has been done. The outside is complete. And now the interiors are being done.'
In 2006 Esha, her mom Hema Malini and sister Ahana moved into their bungalow in Goregaon.
Though the three loved the far-from-the-madding-crowd atmosphere at Goregaon and had decided to stay put in their sighing haven, the family is now planning to move back to Juhu to their original place.
But Esha says there were advantages of staying in Goregaon.
'Travelling to Film City for shooting is so easy here. That set of an aircraft that they put up at Film City for 'Hijack' was just a hop away. Every day I'd get into my car and drive straight into the aircraft,' said Esha whose last release was 'Hijack' that tanked.
But the actress says she had a ball shooting the film.
'It was an action film. I was an airhostess wearing a skirt. So I couldn't do any stunts. But the interesting part of the film was that I don't have a hint of a romantic association with Shiney Ahuja.
'Now I'm also doing Shivum Nair's 'Exchange Offer' with Rahul Bose. It's a very contemporary film about a young couple. And working with Rahul is so different from working with any of my other co-stars.'
Esha also went through a learning experience when she did an item song with Govinda in 'Money Hai Toh Honey Hai'.
'I did that number only to work with Govinda. I'm his biggest fan. As a child I used to watch some of his films almost every day. Dancing with him is a joy. He knows exactly how to handle the body contact in the dancing movements.'
