"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.
