Why Esha Gupta told her parents to avoid Humshakals?

Esha Gupta, who was recently reported as having said that she warned her family not to watch her film Humshakals as they won’t be able to bear it, said she was misquoted.

“I have been misquoted. I did tell my father not to watch Humshakals because Chakravyuh was his favourite film as he is from the defence background,” the 28-year-old said here Thursday at the premiere of Lekar Hum Deewana Dil.


“I am still with Humshakals and have not disowned it. I am very proud and happy that I did the film. Next time Sajid (Khan) will do even better,” she added.

Bipasha Basu, another actress in the film, had dissociated herself from Humshakals even before its release as she was unhappy with the way her role shaped up.

 Esha’s statement had created quite a furore.

Humshakals received bad reviews from critics but still managed to do good business.

The film starred Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor in triple roles. Tamannah Bhatia also features in the movie as the third female lead.
