Miss India International in 2007, Esha Gupta of late has been stunning all with her red hot, sensuous and erotic poses on social media. Esha who made her debut in Bollywood with Jannat 2 and went on to star in Raaz 3D. Recently she sizzled redhot in Baby, Rustom and Commando2. She gave sleepless nights to viewers with her special songs in Tutak Tutak Tutiya and is starring in Veedevadu,making her Tollywood debut romancing Sachin Joshi.
She is also starring in Hera Pheri 3, Baadshaho,Yaar Ivan and Ankhen 2. After her semi nude to completely nude photos went viral on social media, she was slut shamed by many. Many wondered why she turned so bold on social media. Esha herself revealed the secret saying that she is all set to launch her own lingerie business and she did this photoshoot for it.
Esha then took on her detractors saying that men criticise women when they turn bold as they feel that their manhood is challenged. She says “In our country , women are eternally blamed. They are accused when a girl child is born, they are even accused even when they are raped. So, somewhere I knew that I will also have to face a lot of heat. After all, it's easiest for some faceless and redundant people to pull a celebrity down at the first opportunity .I've done shoots like this one when I was a model. I've gone topless and naked, too. No one ever asked me about that. And who are these people who have `issues' with my pictures? It's my body and it's been shot aesthetically . There's a thin line, which if you cross, you look vulgar. No one can say my pictures are vulgar. I got more love than hate, but it's better to be hated than to be forgotten.And right now, I am in my best shape. Although we knew where this could lead, we thought, `If not now, then when?'“
She adds “Find me a doctor who says I went under the scalpel to look like that. It's not my fault that I look a certain way. I'm a carbon copy of my mother, who's far prettier than me.So, should we then say that Angelina Jolie has aped my mother's looks? No, we won't, right? On both sides of my family, fuller lips are common feature. We have a beautiful country but people like the out-of-jobweb-junkies spoil it for all of us.“
Analysing the tendency of men and their mentality, she says “Men tend to have a problem if a woman goes bold. Their manhood is challenged. They are prudes; they must have even saved these pictures on their phone. And here we are in the country of Ajanta and Ellora, and Kamasutra, objecting to a woman's photoshoot which she has done on her own will.So, my attitude is, `S***w them', and that's the point I wanted to make. The pictures turned out so beautiful that I didn't want to hold them back. The thing is that I've been comfortable and confident about my body all along,“
About her reactions from her colleagues she says “Yes. Some of them did. Like Milan Luthria told me, `You're killing it with these photos. I'll be there for you if need arises.' I'm relieved and happy . Now, isn't that what we all seek?“
