Esha Gupta speaks up on the evolution of female characters in Bollywood films
Riding high on the success of her latest comic caper ‘Total Dhamaal’, Esha Gupta is in a happy space. The actress has been choosy with the roles that she does, but she has managed to make a mark in them. The actress recently spoke up about how female characters have evolved in Bollywood these days.
The gorgeous actress believes that the industry has certainly evolved in terms of roles being written for female actors. She quips, “I think the audience is accepting any film, irrespective of the genre. Strong women characters existed even before, but weren’t accepted. However, now, people like to watch a good film and so there is a change. For instance, ‘Lamhe’ was a flop, but it still remains to be one of the greatest films in history.”
Esha is someone who has always proved her mettle as an actor with films like ‘Jannat 2’, ‘Raaz 3D’, ‘Rustom’ and ‘Commando 2’ among others. She likes experimenting with her characters and genres and not just the glamorous ones.
Esha was recently making headlines after she commented on a football player as ‘Gorilla’. The actress was trolled heavily for the same, and she soon apologised for the racial remark. She even clarified that she had emailed the football star personally apologising for her statement.
Esha will be seen playing a cop in her forthcoming film, ‘One Day’. She had played a cop in ‘Chakravyuh’ (2012). She looks damn good pulling off the khakee uniform, and her fans would surely love to have a glimpse of her in the same again in ‘One Day’.
