The ongoing debate in Bollywood gained new fuel after actress Esha Gupta aired her candid thoughts on nepotism. In a recent interview, she stated that being a celebrity kid had many advantages over being an outsider and that she sometimes wished she was a member of the film industry. According to the Aashram 3 actress, “you could be nasty, you could have given a flop and it would be no big deal because you would still have another film in your kitty.”
In an interview with ETimes TV, Esha discussed nepotism and claimed that someone who is not from the industry has no shoulder to cry on and no one to advise you in the proper direction. The actress stated that very few individuals she met were real and honest’ since there are very few people that want to see your growth and guide you in the same manner.
Esha went on to say that if she had been born and raised in the industry, her journey would have been much easier. “At times, I truly wish I was from the industry because I know I wouldn’t have had to deal with it.” When you’re in the industry, you can be cruel, you can give a failure, and it won’t matter because you’ll have another project. I remember being terrified when my first film flopped. I began chastising myself for my decisions. I had the impression that it was the end of the road and that I would no longer be working. But, after a while, I was able to get back up.
“I was working, earning money, putting in so much effort, and then you realize, that’s life,” the Baadshsho actress added.
In terms of her career, Esha Gupta made her Bollywood debut in 2012 with “Jannat 2” with Emraan Hashmi. She appeared in various films, including Humshakals, Raaz 3D, Rustom, and Baadshsho. She was most recently seen in Prakash Jha’s web series Aashram 3, starring Bobby Deol. Esha and Bobby’s smouldering chemistry and intimate encounters drew a lot of attention. According to reports, Gupta has been cast in a crucial role in Priyadarshan’s comedy Hera Pheri 3.
