Esha Gupta's received a lot of acclaim for her bold and brazen role in 'Raaz 3' but many may not know that she is actually scared of horror in real life.
"I am a daddy's girl and when I watched horror shows, I would hug him tight and cover my eyes. It is ironic that today I am being appreciated for my role in a horror film," says Eesha.
She goes on to add, "I remember when Mahesh sir chose me for this film. I was shooting for Jannat 2 and they said let's take Esha. Jannat was an easy role but when Shaguta Rafique the writer gave me a narration of Sanjana’s character (her role in Raaz 3), I realized that it was not going to be easy and to my horror, Vikram added live cockroaches to it," she laughs.
The actress created a lot of buzz with her nude scene in the film, but not much was eventually revealed. Esha says that she is happy with the results. "I think the nude scene was well shot. The audience got a lot and Vikram got what he wanted. The audience felt the pain too. It was a huge scene for me as a newcomer. Vikram was emotionally supportive."
Speaking about the reactions she has been receiving, the ex- Miss India says, "My father called me and said that my work was nice, but told me to perform better next time. I indeed felt proud because it reminds me about how I used to question Vikram every day of the shoot, because I didn’t know what he wanted out of me. I have to thank him for making me a star," she adds.
With two hits to her credit Esha is now looking forward to Prakash Jha's 'Chakravyuh'. "It's a great film and I have finished shooting for it. I play an IPS officer in the film. I am still experiencing each role and I still have a lot to learn," she says.
