- Esha Gupta once posted a snapshot of her Whatsapp conversation with a friend. In the conversation, Esha Gupta and her friend were criticising Nigerian footballer, Alexander Iwobi for his performance. Her friend called the footballer a ‘gorilla’ and said that ‘evolution stopped for him.’ He added that the footballer did not change from ‘neanderthal to man.’ To which, Esha replied ‘Haha.’ However, it created a massive uproar on social media, with people trolling her for being a racist. She later deleted the post and apologised for her behaviour.
- Esha Gupta did a racy photoshoot and uploaded the photos on her Instagram account. Esha received a lot of hate comments on her pictures after that. She did an interview with Times of India, in which she talked about the controversy. In her interview, she said that women are blamed eternally in India, whether it is rape or when a girl child is born. She further added that it was her body and her photos being shot aesthetically, and she doesn’t care about what negative comment people give because she has got more love that those hate comments.
- After an unfortunate event of mass molestation case on Bengaluru on the New Year’s Eve of 2017, politician Abu Azmi criticised women for wearing short dresses and roaming in the night and called the incident as ‘inevitable.’ His comments made Esha tweet,
The only woman to blame here, n she probably would have blamed herself too, is the woman who unknowingly gave birth to a jerk like u#AbuAzmi.”
After which Farhan Azmi defended his father and said,
Esha, woman who gave birth to @abuasimazmi is my grandma, who is no longer amongst us to defend herself. She was far more dignified than U.”
But the fight didn’t end there as the Farhan retweeted a semi-nude photo of Esha that said look at the nudity you have given to our films.
