The black belt holder of Taekwondo quips, "You have to hold time and it's important to manage it for fitness. If you take care of your body the body will take care of you. I work out once a day sometimes twice a day but I do ensure I don't miss out on it."
"My married life is great. My in-laws are Punjabi and they shower me with lot of affection. Even my childhood friend was a Punjabi and I remember always wearing a Kada," gushes the Mangalorean actress. She is currently busy setting up her hospitality business and hopes to do maximum two films a year.
She says, "I realized after marrying and travelling extensively with my husband that food is such an important part of our lives. There is a misconception that healthy food is hospital like. My life style is healthy, so I want to create a place where health meets taste and extend, share it with a lot more people."
In between her business plans and movies she is also walking the ramp but as of now she is absolutely excited about her upcoming release Shabri. Lalit Marathe saw her in a film where she plays Chunky Pandey's wife and decided that she is the woman.
He says, "I saw the hunger in her eyes that said mould me the way you want. She has the structure, the sexuality and the power and is an intelligent actor." Eesha laughs and affirms that the role is indeed powerful about a woman who rebels, she has no choice but to do or die.
She adds, "By the end of the film I was hospitalized, was on saline..it was so draining and I completely got involved in the character. I loved being Shabri and was Shabri throughout. Now I feel fully pregnant ready to deliver Shabri. I've been praying for it, I would sit two hours in a saree to put on that colour to look like Shabri. People shouldn't see me on screen they should see Shabri."
