Actress Esha Gupta gets mistaken as South American

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Actress Esha Gupta, who feels is going places, says she often gets mistaken for a South American.

Esha was present at Namaste America, an Indo-American association for art and culture initiative, on Wednesday in Mumbai.

Talking about the initiative, she said: "I always talk politically incorrect rather than being politically correct. Now we are living in war-torn world where people are fighting for land, but it's a really nice thing that India and America are coming together.

"In times where people are talking about building walls, America and India are forming a relationship. It's all about culture and unity, so I am happy that we are building bridges and not building walls, and people who know this... will understand the pun intended. I am happy that India is taking a step forward on that front."

Talking about the Hollywood-connection, Esha said: "Now Indians are also taking their films to America and, after Hollywood, people recognize as a popular film industry in the world.

"Whenever I go there, people feel that I am South American but when I introduce myself as a actress, they are amazed. So it's not that only Hollywood is coming to India, but is also going places."

Asked about what she likes about the US, she said: "America is great in their food and education... I feel people are really nice and warm, at least those with whom I have interacted."
