Actress Esha Deol Takhtani, who is making her comeback with the short film “Cakewalk” directed by Ram Kamal Mukherjee, says that being a feature film actress, it was a risk for her to try her hand at a new format of entertainment.Mukherjee, who has been a journalist and author, is a debutant filmmaker.
Asked what made Esha work with a new director, the ‘Dhoom’ actress told IANS in Mumbai: “Firstly, I knew him before because he is a journalist. When he narrated the story to me, though he wasn’t ready for film direction, I was impressed by his conviction towards the character that he had written. “I took a risk of entering the digital entertainment format so, I wanted someone who is equally interested to prove his best.
I saw that thrive in Ram. So, I thought it would be best to collaborate with him,” added the daughter of veteran actress Hema Malini. The story of the film revolves around a Bengali woman, Shilpa, who is passionate about baking and confectionary. However, she goes through a tussle between domestic bliss and pursing her passion.Esha will be seen playing a Bengali character for the first time in her career.
