Actress Esha Gupta has said that she was advised to get injections for fairer skin tone and she even attempted to find the cost of such an injection at the time. Esha is at present seen in the web series, Aashram’s season 3.
Esha told Prabhat Khabar in an interaction, “At the starting of my career, I was advised to get my nose sharpened. I was told my nose is round. A long time ago, people also advised me to get injections for fair skin and even I got carried away for some time. I went ahead and found out that such an injection would cost ₹9000. I won’t name them but you will find many of our actresses with fair skin.”
She added, “Actresses have a lot of pressure of looking beautiful. I would never want my daughter to become an actor otherwise she will face the pressure of looking beautiful from a young age. She will not be able to live her life like a normal, real person. I’d want she becomes an athlete, she would not have to study much either.”
Her recent series with Bobby Deol-starrer Aashram is also being lauded. Helmed by Prakash Jha, the web show also features Adhyayan Suman, Anupria Goenka, Darshan Kumaar, Sachin Shroff, and Tridha Choudhury.
