Actress Esha Gupta says an outsider who is trying to launch a career in Bollywood should have tremendous patience more than talent.
She said in an interview that she had tried hard to work in good films but she did not have much luck. “I got many films which had huge money, but those were the kind of films which I would never wanted to do”, she said stressing that the qualitative side of an acting career is more important than money.
Esha’s career took a beating for a while after the debacle of ‘Humshakals’, leaving her disheartened. The 2014 movie, directed by Sajid Khan and featured Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor and Ritesh Deshmukh in triple roles tanked at the box office and was met with unfavourable reviews.
Esha, 30, will next be seen in the upcoming film Rustom. Talking about her character in the movie she says she is not skeptical about playing a negative role. “I remember Priyanka Chopra won an award for Aitraaz and everyone remembers that till now. Aishwarya (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) did Khakee and it was also appreciated. It’s always good to have something for which people will remember you.”
Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, Rustom features Akshay Kumar and Ileana D’Cruz in key roles. It is set to hit the screens on August 12. – CINEWS
