New Delhi: Actress Esha Gupta, who stars in Baadshaho, this week's latest release, said that she's still 'considered as an outsider' in the industry, reports news agency PTI. Esha debuted in Bollywood in 2012 with Jannat 2, opposite Emraan Hashmi. "I think I am still an outsider. I am still treated like one to quite an extent by the so-called 'industry people.' It's their body language that lets you know. I can't blame them because even I haven't made an effort to be a part of them. I don't want to," Esha told PTI, adding that she 'sometimes wishes she had another surname.'

Esha's Baadshaho, in which she co-stars with actors like Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Ileana D'Cruz, is her second film of the year. Commando 2, which released earlier this year, tanked at the box office. "I am proud of the work I've done, it was tough (journey), but I have carved the way on my own. There are times, I wish even if four of my films flop, there is someone producing films for me and making films only with me," the 31-year-old actress told PTI.
Of Baadshaho, Esha said, "This is not the kind of film where I need to jostle for space. I am not worried at all. I am not one of those who says, 'My role is important,' I am quite secure as to why I am there.
Esha Gupta is a former beauty queen. She has starred in films such as Chakravyuh, Humshakals, Raaz and Rustom.
