Esha Deol may be seen shaking her legs to kitschy songs in Bollywood films, but her heart lies with the classical dance.
Esha has imbibed a penchant for the classical dance from her actress and danseuse mother Hema Malini.
Esha concedes that when she made her debut in Bollywood films she "didn't even know I could do dance on filmi songs. Now that I'm into films I have to do them, and do them properly."
She also adds that her knowledge of classical dance has in fact helped her in adjusting to different styles of dancing in films. "In my opinion if you've learnt classical dancing you can carry off any kind of dancing."
In her recently released Kucch To Hai alongside Tusshar Kapoor, Esha has blended her classical style into the typical 1960s Grease"-style rock 'n' roll for the Yeh Mera Dil number.
