Esha Gupta is all set to be launched by the very same production house that is responsible for giving a fresh lease of life to Bipasha Basu twice in her career (JISM and now RAAZ 3). However Esha Gupta is sure that she doesn't wish to tread the same path. Content with how life is treating her and taking one step at a time, Esha is plain happy that she has wrapped up work on Bhatts' JANNAT 2 with Emraan Hashmi and is now eagerly awaiting the film's release.
"I always thought that after winning the beauty pageant, I would go back to studies and also pick up some modelling assignments," says Esha who originally hails from Delhi, "I was in Mumbai for some time but then I wasn't really killing myself to be an actress. I am not someone who really plans her 10 years ahead. I am just enjoying every day of my life and happy with what life has to offer to me. It's not like I wake up in the morning and start thinking that 'Oh my God, I want to be the next Bipasha or Katrina'. I want to take things as they come my way."
Fortunately for her things seem to be coming rather fast for her, what with a three film contract already been signed with the Bhatts. Impressed by what she has done in her debut flick JANNAT 2, she is already on board for RAAZ 3 (where she would be incidentally sharing screen space with Bipasha) and is in line for another film as well that is expected to kick-start next year.
"Honestly, offers were coming my way even before I had signed JANNAT 2," says Esha in a matter of fact tone, "However I wanted to slow down a little and hence did an acting course as well. I don't think anyone can get good roles and end up impressing the makers with just good looks. You have to be show spark as an actor as well."
Well Esha, we do hope the spark does show once you debut on the big screen.
