Esha Gupta (born 28 November 1985) is an Indian actress who appears in Bollywood movies.
Gupta participated in Femina Miss India in 2007, where she won Miss Photogenic and came 3rd to go on to compete in Miss India International. She
featured in the Kingfisher Calendar in 2010.
Gupta made her Bollywood debut with Mahesh Bhatt’s Jannat 2 opposite Emraan Hashmi in the lead role.For her debut performance, Taran Adarsh of
Boollywood Hungama said, “Debutante Esha Gupta enchants you with her captivating charm. She appears a tad unrefined at places, nonetheless she
handles her part assertively.”Martin D’Souza of Glam Sham wrote, “As for the debutante, Esha Gupta, I guess she may have to enroll herself into an acting
school.” Gaurav Malani stated, “Esha Gupta, who looks a mix between Lara Dutta and Isha Koppikar, is merely there for the glam quotient.”Asha
Mahadevan of Bollywoodlife said, “Even Esha Gupta manages to cry somewhat convincingly but then there is hardly anything for her to do. Her role is
limited to looking sexy and she does it well.” The film was a success at the box office, earning ₹430 million (US$6.4 million) domestically and thus brought in
more recognition for Gupta. Later, Gupta signed Vikram Bhatt’s Raaz 3D alongside her Jannat 2 co-star, Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu, Gupta
received mixed reviews from critics for her acting prowess, film critic Taran Adarsh commented, “Esha Gupta appears awkward and self-conscious in the
initial portions, but holds a few sequences graciously in the subsequent hour. I’d like to single out a scene when she has delusions of cockroaches
attacking her. Her act in that particular scene is super”.Film critic Komal Nahta noted, “Esha Gupta is stiff as Sanjana but does much better towards the end
(when she almost goes berserk)”. India Today wrote, “Both Bipasha and Esha get liberal scope to show off booty. A Bhatt film where the heroines don’t get
to flaunt it is unimaginable, after all, Bipasha looks hot in her starring role but Esha reveals a few raw edges”. ‘Raaz 3’ performed well at box office within
first three days of its release with collections in the vicinity of 360 million.
