Esha celebrates sensuality


She is only three films old but has already managed to grab eyeballs with her substantial stints in Jannat 2, Raaz 3 and Chakravyuh. Svelte Bollywood beauty Esha Gupta now aims to raise the bar with both mainstream commercial and offbeat realistic ventures. “I’m game for all kinds of genres.

Be it a dark, eerie, Gothic flick or a full-on comedy or let’s say, a period romance or an issue-based subject, I’m comfortably open to a varied mix of movies,” says the lissome lass, who started her professional career from the ramp before plunging into the Bollywood waters.
Having played a doctor in Jannat 2, a rising superstar in Vikram Bhatt’s Raaz 3 and an IPS officer in Prakash Jha’s much talked-about outing Chakravyuh, Esha is now a part of the next project of Vishesh Films which is yet to be announced. “As of now, I can hardly disclose anything as it’s still in its early stage. But yeah, since I’ve been contract-bound with the production house, so it’s likely for me to feature in another film from its banner,” she reveals.
Of late, this dusky dame shot a peppy, club-hopping song with Imran Khan in a forthcoming Dharma Productions’ project Gori Tere Pyaar Mein. Written and directed by Punit Malhotra, this rom-com will see Esha shimmying down on the dance floor in a foot-tapping, bouncy club-number. Currently, the film is being canned in Bangalore. “The song introduces Imran’s character in the film and sets the ball rolling with a racy dance-act. It opens up with the hero making a move to try and hit on the girl he suddenly spots at the disc,” she describes in detail. Sporting a hot, urban look in the video, Esha informs to have been draped in a Manish Malhotra costume for the same. Praising Imran as a lovely co-star to work with, Esha gushes: “Oh, he is one of the most chivalrous guys I’ve come across in this industry and he is so hardworking.”
Commenting on the portrayal of item songs on the celluloid, which is currently under the scanner for allegedly objectifying women, Esha volunteers to lull the storm being kicked-up. “I can vouch for the quality of this particular song as it has been aesthetically shot. The sensuality of the fairer-sex will obviously be celebrated on screen and I see no harm in it. As long as the song doesn’t look vulgar to me, I’ve no qualms in doing an item number in a movie,” she plays it straight adding, “It’s primarily the respect that one pays to women that is valued the most.”

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
