Esha Gupta is politically correct

On the dice: Esha Gupta

Actress Esha Gupta, who feels Bollywood is going places, says she often gets mistaken for a South American. Esha was present at Namaste America, an Indo-American association for art and culture initiative, in Mumbai. Talking about the initiative, she said: “I always talk politically incorrect rather than being politically correct. Now we are living in war-torn world where people are fighting for land, but it’s a really nice thing that India and America are coming together. In times where people are talking about building walls, America and India are forming a relationship. It’s all about culture and unity, so I am happy that we are building bridges and not building walls, and people who know this... will understand the pun intended. I am happy that India is taking a step forward on that front.”  Talking about the Hollywood-Bollywood connection, Esha said: “Now Indians are also taking their films to America and, after Hollywood, people recognize Bollywood as a popular film industry in the world. Whenever I go there, people feel that I am South American but when I introduce myself as a Bollywood actress, they are amazed. So it’s not that only Hollywood is coming to India, but Bollywood is also going places.” —IANS
