It’s never too late to experience the joys of parenthood, or grandparent-hood.

So says Bollywood’s grand he-man Dharmendra, whose elder daughter Esha has just become a mother.

It feels wonderful to hold that bundle of joy in my hands. Esha has always been very close to my heart. Ahana (the younger daughter) was already a mother. Since she had a son, Hema and I are happy Esha has a daughter to complete the family. We would have been happy with either a grandson or a granddaughter. We just wanted the baby to be healthy.
Dharmendra, Actor

Would he be spending time with the newest member of the Deol family? “Of course! As much as possible. Now that I am not working that much, I like to be around my children and grandchildren. I also like writing poetry and spending time on my farm,”

Any chances of a memoir? That would be so interesting!

It may be interesting to the readers. But my life is not for public display. I’ve to safeguard the feelings of all those who love me. I am happy living my life rather than re-living it in writing.

I couldn’t agree more.
