Ahana Deol, second daughter of Dharmendra and Hema Malini, will make her screen debut as heroine in a film to be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and produced by Anurag Kashyap.
Ahana, whose elder sister Esha Deol did not make much impact as an actress, was reluctant to take up the profession. She declined many offers including one by Dev Anand.
In fact, last year Ahana opened a store that stocks clothes designed by her, paintings and photographs by other artists and also edibles like jams, pastries and other gourmet products.
However, the duo of Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap, who made Udaan, were able to entice Ahana to accept to act which she did after going through the script. Her mother Hema Malini also liked the script and persuaded her second daughter to take the plunge into films
