'Everything is a risk for me'

Model-turned-actress Esha Gupta says she has taken a risk with the kind of roles she is presently doing, as she is new to the industry.

In her debut opposite Emraan Hashmi in Mukesh Bhatt’s Jannat 2, Esha played a doctor. Now, she is essaying the role of an actress in Vikram Bhatt’s Raaz 3 and a cop in Prakash Jha’s Chakravyuh (which is releasing on October 12), which explores the problems of Naxalism.

“Right now, everything is a risk for me. But if I don’t take a risk today, where
will I reach? It’s not about playing safe or anything.

Of all the options I had got, I think whatever films I have chosen to do are best,” Esha says.

“It was one of the best things to be working with a director like Vikram in
Raaz 3. Right now, it doesn’t matter to me if it’s a big or small role, because all
three of my films are really different,” she adds.

Esha is taking every film as a learning experience. “What matters to me is the learning experience. I am not saying that I won’t do big commercial films. All the characters that I have played so far have been very different,” Esha states.

“I still don’t know what genre I fit into. I want to try my hand at different things and find out what I am best at. I want to discover myself as an actress,” she adds.
