Actress Esha Gupta says she does not have to give credit to anyone for her career in Bollywood because she started her journey without a god father or without help from anyone else.
“Being a total outsider, I had to work really hard because I had no backers. It is a good thing because I don’t end up giving anyone credit for where I am. Some people might take it the wrong way but that’s the truth. There is no one I give credit for making me an actor,” she said in a media interview.
But the 30-year-old star is thankful for some people who have helped her along the way.
“There are a lot of people I am thankful to in this process and Mukeshji (Mukesh Bhatt) is on top of that list because he is the one, who said, ‘We will cast you in Jannat 2.”
The actress who born in Delhi said sometimes in the past she wondered how she would pay the rent next month. “It was really tough. I have seen those days when I did not know how I was going to pay the next month’s rent. There is no one looking out for you and if your film flops, you are not going to get a second chance. I did not have a godfather. I don’t have any relatives in Bollywood.”
Esha says hard work, patience and luck are important to survive in the industry.
“I have seen beautiful girls, good looking men who can do almost everything possible, coming to Mumbai…. When I used to audition, I would think that I will not survive in front of them. It is a lot of luck but you need a lot of patience too. Like I knew, my time was coming and I kept at it. I am a very instinctive person. I just wanted to be ready when it comes.”
Esha was last seen in Rustom. Her upcoming movies are Vipul Shah’s Commando 2 and Milan Luthria’s. – CINEWS
