Esha Gupta has credited her days in modelling for her stint as an actress in Bollywood.
The `Humshakals` actress, who started off her career in showbiz as a model, was the show-stopper for her designer friend Jyotsna Tiwari on the final day of India Bridal Fashion Week.
"I started my career as a model and if I am standing here as a show-stopper it is all due to my modelling. It made me an actress and gave me my much-needed break. I still get nervous when I walk on the ramp and still seek for blessings before starting the catwalk. I owe a lot to it, " Esha told reporters after the show.
Esha turned a contemporary Christian bride on the ramp. She completed the look of the bride in a flowy gown and a veil covering her head.
"I am happy to wear such a contemporary wedding gown which does not make me look sexy. She gave me something which is young and contemporary," she added.
Asked if she would like to be dressed as a contemporary bride and do a Christian wedding, the 28-year-old actress said, "My mother would kill me if I don`t do Indian traditional wedding and my father wants an Arya Samaj way of wedding. But I have no wedding plans for next ten years."
Esha said she is yet to sign something substantial in Bollywood after Sajid Khan`s `Humshakals` and is currently gearing up for her debut international project which she will start shooting in October.
Jyotsna`s collection was titled `Under the Stars`. The silhouette ranged from pre-draped sarees, evening gowns, crafted lehengas to voluminous anarkalis in pastel shades.
