Video: Esha Deol Promotes Cakewalk

Bollywood actress Esha Deol was in Kolkata for the Bengali bridal look poster unveiling of her latest Bollywood venture- a short film named Cakewalk. Also present at the occasion was the director duo Ram Kamal Mukherjee-Abhra Chakraborty, Aritra Das and others.


The film showcases the journey of a Chef Shilpa Sen. The film shows the professional and personal journey of a woman in our society.


Speaking about her look in the poster, Esha Deol said “I am glad that I got to deck up like a Bengali bride in my film. I have always wanted to deck myself up in that look. Hopefully I have lived up to the expectations and I look like a proper Bengali bride”.

The Dhoom girl had consciously taken a break from films after marriage and motherhood. Last October she and Bharat Takhtani had a baby girl Radhya, and since then she has been enjoying her motherhood.


“I got the offer for this role when I had Radhya. So it was a tough decision for me to make. However with the love and support of my family, I was able to take the decision and come back to acting” added the actress.

The story and screenplay has been penned by Ram Kamal. The film is co-directed by Abhra Chakraborty, who assisted National Award winning Bengali director Bappaditya Bandhopadhya in Elar Chaar Adhyay.


“The film is a short film but the level in which we have shot the film is at par with a standard feature film. With this film, we are trying to break the stereotypes that one associates with short films. This will be a great film in this genre which will change the short film scenario completely” said Ram Kamal Mukherjee.

Produced by Dinesh Gupta, Shailendra Kumar and Aritra Das, under the banner of Assorted Motion Pictures and S S One Entertainments, the film will also introduce model turned television actor Tarun Malhotra as the male lead.

The music has been composed by Shailendra Sayanti.

The film is eyeing for release in October.
