For someone who had been pining to groove on a catchy dance number as a leading lady in a quintessential Bollywood entertainer, Esha Gupta’s wait has finally come to an end. Though she had been a part of song and dance routine in films like JANNAT 2 and RAAZ 3, Esha Gupta didn’t really have a hardcore dance number to her name.

However, with HUMSHAKALS, she has all the good reasons to smile, what with ‘Just Look Into My Eyes’ finding some good audience for itself in less than a week since its arrival.
‘In a club setting with Saif Ali Khan as her dancing partner, Esha indeed has managed to step up the ladder as far as a leading lady’s positioning in the industry is concerned,’ says a veteran filmmaker, ‘She has of course done a dance number ‘Dhat Teri Ki’ [GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN] which was hugely popular too. However, it was a cameo for her, as the film belonged to Kareena Kapoor. In HUMSHAKALS, she is the leading lady for Saif which promises her some huge visibility.’
With Sajid Khan too making sure that Esha gets her due when it comes to a presentation which is stylish yet classy, ‘Just Look Into My Eyes’ is also one of the most striking numbers that he has picturized for his films. No wonder Esha can’t thank him, Saif and her team enough.

‘Honestly, I haven’t done a proper commercial film so far. HUMSHAKALS is my first such film and that’s the truth. It is fun to be with Saif, Riteish and of course Sajid.’
She is also happy to be getting an opportunity where she can groove to a naughty number. Laughs Esha, ‘I am a born athlete but not a born dancer. Guess I am getting better at that too.’
We would love to see that and more in action once HUMSHAKALS, which is a production of Vashu Bhagnani and Fox, releases all over on 20th June.
