Esha Deol was questioned about Ameesha Patel’s comment on star kids in the 2000s.

Esha expresses surprise over Ameesha’s claim

Responding to Ameesha’s comment, Esha stated, “Did she? My perspectives differ. I believe we were all quite occupied with our own set of what we were assigned. I’ve cherished some wonderful bonds with the girls back then, and to my understanding, no one took anyone’s role.” She further mentioned, “Everyone was exceedingly occupied and content working in their own sphere. Everyone was amicable, all the girls, even the men very cordial, it was genuinely pleasant… “I think we were all engaged in a lot of work and had plenty to do. It’s not like any of us were sitting idle.”

Ameesha accused Kareena and Esha of taking roles

In a 2023 interview, Ameesha asserted her peers couldn’t cope with her success. Ameesha mentioned in an interview, “When I stepped into the film industry, I was surrounded by film actors’ children or producers’ children, it was Kareena Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Tushar Kapoor, Esha Deol, Fardeen Khan, you name it, you turn around and it was a film family third-generation individual stepping in.” She continued, “I was the outsider, and being a south Bombay girl, I was seen as a snob because I was the educated outsider. I was the one who did not b**** on sets, I read books, I did not tattle, so I was inevitably labeled a snob because I chose to read.”

Ameesha and Esha’s recent projects

Ameesha made her return to the film industry with Anil Sharma’s Gadar 2 in 2023. The movie reunited her with Sunny Deol. Gadar 2 was released on August 11 and went on to become one of last year’s biggest box office blockbusters.

Esha, alternatively, has yet to reveal her next film. Her short film Ek Duaa, which marked her debut as a producer, garnered a National Film Award at the 69th National Film Award.
