I can`t carry a film on my shoulders: Esha Gupta

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.
