Esha's one regret. Her mom, the irradiant Hema Malini, couldn't be there to watch her daughter play a Tamilian. "My mother has become quite a jet-setter travelling all over the place for her dance recitals. She's in Kolkata right now. I'll make her see One Two Three as soon as she returns."
[an error occurred while processing this directive] The boisterous bit on screen notwithstanding, Esha was quite the lady at the premiere in her chic make-up and elegant gown. "I guess I wanted to create a contrast to my loud brassy character in the film (laughs). People see me as a tomboy. But I can be quite a lady if I want to be."
Esha is now gearing up for the release of her first kick-ass action film Hijack. "But let me warn you, I don't do any of the kick boxing and all that stuff I'm dying to do on screen one day. Though this is a hijack-adventure story, all the action converges on Shiney Ahuja. I'm the air hostess therefore very timid and gentle. The director, Kunal Shivdasani, made sure I don't jump out of character suddenly. It's a very realistic action drama."
She dismisses all the stories of her differences with Shiney. "I don't know where that came from. Shiney and I had a great time shooting Hijack." Hijack would be Esha's last film for a while. "I haven't signed anything. And I won't until something worthwhile comes along."
