Mumbai: Bollywood newcomer Esha Gupta says she has been a fan of Bipasha Basu, with whom she shares screen space in `Raaz 3`.
"I have been a big fan of Bipasha. I have seen her on the big screen and the scene in which she comes out of the sea wearing a white gown (in `Jism`). Left a strong impact on me. In fact not only on me, but millions in our country and I was one of those. Now I am really honoured that she is my co-star in `Raaz 3`," Esha told reporters.
Esha, who is creating waves with her performance in "Jannat 2", was conscious that Bipasha is her senior and so she made it a point not to have many retakes.
"Bipasha made my presence felt because she is someone who is very secure.I wasn`t intimated, but I was definitely nervous because I didn`t want to give many retakes and make a star like her wait," the 27-year-old said.
"She is lovely. She makes sure that she gives you all the attention and helps you. I didn`t feel that I was not in the film, because the film revolves around three of us... So all three of us - me, Emraan (Hashmi) and Bipasha - have our own part in the movie," she added.
`Raaz 3` is directed by Mohit Suri.
