I don't care about being typecast: Esha Gupta
Her next film 'Chakravyuh', which delves on the Naxalite movement, might feature her in a deglam role, but she says the subject itself is bold.
"I don't care about being typecast. It's the requirement of the movie. Everyone is saying this ('Chakravyuh') is a bold film as the topic is bold. For me, the story and the script is bold, not the scenes," Esha told us.
There is a cosy scene between Esha and Arjun Rampal in 'Chakravyuh'.
"Prakash Jha told me this scene comes when Arjun is completely broken in the movie. There is no lovemaking or kissing as such. (I think when) We are following everything like the west, why make a big deal? We wanted to show the nature of a husband and wife," Esha said in justification of the scene.
The dusky beauty, who loves to glam up, didn't even mind putting on a less glamourous look for the movie.
"I love dressing up! Coming from New Delhi, I always dressed up and went out. So I can't change myself (personally), but for a character I can always do so I am okay with that," she said.
"Prakash said I want you to look earthy in the film because she (the character) is today's woman, well-spoken. He said 'I don't want you to look shabby', but of course there were no open hair, no sexy clothes, very less make-up and I was okay with that as it was a character's requirement," added Esha.
She even admits how she craved to be a part of Jha's film.
"When I got this opportunity, I jumped on it. That time I was shooting for 'Raaz 3' and I called Mahesh (Bhatt) sir. He said, 'We will give you the dates even if it's a two-minute role. Do the film because Prakash is a brilliant filmmaker'," said Esha.
'Chakravyuh' also features Abhay Deol, Manoj Bajpayee, Kabir Bedi and Anjali Patil. The film is slated to release on October 24.
