Career

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 was featured in the Kingfisher Calendar in 2010.

Gupta made her Bollywood debut with Mahesh Bhatt’s Jannat 2 in 2012 opposite Emraan Hashmi in the lead role. For her debut performance, Taran Adarsh of Bollywood 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$5.6 million) domestically and thus brought in more recognition for Gupta.

Later, Gupta signed Vikram Bhatt‘s Raaz 3D alongside her Jannat 2 co-stars, Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu, Gupta received mixed reviews from critics for her acting prowess, 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 the 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 the box office within the first three days of its release with collections in the vicinity of 360 million. Her third film of the year, Chakravyuh, was invited to premiere at London Film Fest.
