Actress and former Miss India, Esha Gupta, made her Bollywood debut with Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Jannat 2’ in which she played opposite to Emraan Hashmi and she will share the screen space with Hashmi yet again in Fox Star Studios and Vishesh Films’ Raaz 3, which is a sequel to Raaz – The Mystery Continues (2009), which itself was a sequel to Raaz (2002).
The 26-year-old was quite nervous when she did steamy scenes with Hashmi in her debut film but she now admits that she doesn’t do much without the guidance of B’town’s ‘serial kisser’.
While sharing thoughts with the media, Gupta was all praises for Hashmi, who she goes on to call him as her mentor.
“I love Emraan. I was really scared of him during Jannat 2, where he used to give his scenes like a piece of cake and I’d just look at him tongue-tied. He is really sweet, quite like my mentor and he has given me a lot of tips,” said Esha.
In Raaz 3, Gupta has performed many bold scenes. She even ran naked in front of the crowd but she doesn’t have any problems with it.
The movies which Gupta has chosen for herself can easily bring her a sex symbol’s tag but she doesn’t have any problems with it. The actress even claimed her family is also comfortable on these aspects of her career.
Esha told TOI, “I’m okay with the ‘sexy’ tag as long as people look beyond that and appreciate the effort that has gone into my performance. Also, my directors have given me very different roles, which have helped me grow.”
She added, “I have a very broad-minded family. Acting is an art and we understand that. Also, both the directors have dealt with the scenes very aesthetically. If you work where people can be aroused easily and if the scenes are not shot well, they can become vulgar.”
‘Raaz 3’ will be released on September 7 and along with Esha Gupta and Emraan Hashmi, Bipasha Basu will play a key role in the movie.
