Looking the part is half the battle won, or so it is believed. Esha Gupta took over a dozen screen tests to crack her badass bombshell avatar in Milan Luthria’s Baadshaho, inspired by the 70s bombshells- Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi.
Esha Gupta who was last seen in Rustom, tried several hair and make-up permutations and combinations of which the best got the nod from director Milan Luthria, who wanted his leading lady to look sexy despite the badass vibe to her character.
The film’s stylist and director Milan suggested Esha to alter her hair colour and try on coloured lenses. Esha admits that it’s probably the highest number of tests she has ever undergone to crack her look in a film.
Well, we surely agree that her hard work has paid off!
