Lady on duty!
You have seen her scorching the pages of the glossy Kingfisher calendar; then she forayed into Bollywood and was seen as a doctor in Jannat 2. Now be ready to see Esha Gupta as a tough cop in the upcoming film Chakravyuh. Does she impress?
Esha Gupta has gone de-glam and now this desi Angelina Jolie is a cop in Prakash Jha’s next Chakravyuh which is a film set against the backdrop of Naxalism.
Esha plays Rhea Menon, who heads the Intelligence Bureau of Bhopal and is the wife of Arjun Rampal (SP Adil Khan) in the film. Since she has a bold character, Esha has done her own stunts in the film.
Talking about her stunts, director Prakash Jha says, “She did a very good stunt sequence on a helicopter where the door was open and there was a lot of firing. It was quite a daredevil act…” In fact, it wasn’t easy for Esha to perform that stunt since she is battling vertigo for years, but when she saw Prakash Jha with a camera, in another helicopter, she got the courage to do the scene.
Esha Gupta is shown as an intelligent police officer who is also a technology wizard. Her extensive use of technology in her area, and setting up satellite imagery is what boosts the police movement and helps her husband Adil and his team in controlling their surveillance.
However, getting into the skin of a female police officer wasn’t a cakewalk. Esha Gupta did extensive workshop with Prakash Jha and learnt the basic nuances of getting the right body language, look and dialect to excel in her character.
Chakravyuh stars Abhay Deol, Arjun Rampal, Om Puri and Kabir Bedi in pivotal roles, besides Esha. The film is scheduled to release October 5th, 2012. Catch the actress as a de-glam cop in the film. Also catch the mustachioed Arjun Rampal from the film:
