Veteran actress Hema Malini says her birthday wish for daughter Esha Deol is that she start a family soon.

Esha, who turns 34 today, got married to businessman Bharat Takhtani in 2012.

"My only wish for Esha is, you have to have a baby soon.

As a mother, that’s my wish," Hema said.

The ‘Dream Girl’ star said the birthday will have a special celebration but will be a low key affair.

"We will have a special celebration party for her. It won’t be a public party, just limited to family members. It’ll be a nice private celebration," the actress added.

Esha made her Bollywood debut opposite Aftab Shivdasani in ‘Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe’ in 2002 and rose to popularity with the action-drama ‘Dhoom’.

The ‘Just Married’ actress made a comeback of sorts with ‘Tell Me O Kkhuda’ which was directed by Hema.

Incidentally, Hema’s debut film as a director was ‘Dil Aashna Hai’ in 1992 which starred superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who also celebrates his 50th birthday on Monday.
