On Father's Day, actor Esha Deol recalled a heartfelt incident with veteran actor-father Dharmendra. 

Esha is Dharmendra and Hema Malini's elder daughter. She has a younger sister Ahana Deol. 

In conversation with ETimes, Esha spoke about a memory from her childhood when she woke up one morning to not find Hema at home. 

As little Esha started crying, and Dharmendra took on daddy duties and dressed her up for the day.  

"There is one memory that is absolutely hilarious. I still remember it because I was around the age where I could remember things. We were all on a vacation abroad and my mom had gone out shopping a little early in the morning. I woke up with only papa in the room and started crying looking for mumma. He consoled me saying he was there and that he will do everything for me. He bathed me, combed my hair, made me wear a party frock, put kajal in my eyes, and gave me an oily hairstyle. My mom walked in to find me all dressed up at nine in the morning. That was really cute," she said.

Esha revealed that as Dharmendra would be busy filming, they never got the chance to celebrate Father's Day together in her childhood. However, now if he is in Mumbai, the family pays him a visit with cakes and gifts. Apart from Esha, Bobby Deol also took to Twitter to wish Dharmendra on Father's day. 

Sharing a throwback picture, he wrote: "I will always be your little boy! Love you papa  #HappyFathersDay!! #FathersDay #Dad #FatherandSon"
