I can`t carry a film on my shoulders: Esha Gupta
Mumbai: Three-film old Esha Gupta says that unlike Vidya Balan, she is not in a position to carry an entire movie on her shoulders.
Esha made her debut thriller ‘Jannat 2’, produced under Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt`s Vishesh Films banner. Her second film ‘Raaz 3D’ was also with them.
She also played an important role in ‘Chakravyuh’, a film on Maoists.
"I want to do various kinds of films, but no female oriented films right now," Esha told IANS.
"I am not Vidya Balan and I don`t think right now I can pull an entire film on my shoulders. Vidya Balan did `The Dirty Picture` and `Kahaani`, which was completely on her shoulders. In future, I will definitely do such films, but not right now," she added.
After working with directors Vikram Bhatt and Prakash Jha, the 28-year-old now has a new wish list.
She said: "I want to be part of good films. Script matters the most. I would like to do an Anurag Kashyap film, like `Gangs Of Wasseypur` or a glamorous film like `Race`."
An outsider, Esha admits that her journey into filmdom has been "pretty rough".
"I had my own share of struggle. But I think I owe a lot to Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt who gave me a break in the showbiz (with `Jannat 2`)," she said.
She said she takes inspiration from those who made it big without any film background.
"There are many other actresses who don`t have filmy backup including Aishwarya Rai and Deepika Padukone. I take inspiration from these actresses," she said.
Esha has a three films contract with Vishesh Films, and soon she will be doing her third film with them.
