Not many know that Esha Deol Takhtani has fear of fire. She generally avoids scenes that would ignite fire. While shooting for a very critical scene for her forthcoming film Cakewalk, director Ram Kamal Mukherjee wanted Esha to set flame to a cake, for which she had to pour alcohol on the cake and set it ablaze with the lighter.
A source from the set informs, “Esha made sure that head chef Neelabh Sahay from Novotel Kolkata was present at the shoot, and she in fact asked the chef to demonstrate exactly how they set fire to the cake. After Neelabh Sahay showed her the process she wanted director Ram Kamal to enact the scene exactly the way he wanted her to perform.”
Despite her inhibitions and fear, she did that shot in one take and everyone clapped.
Esha plays the role of a bakery chef Shilpa Sen who prepares Bombay Alaska (considered as one of the toughest to bake) in the film.
Produced by Aritra Das, Shailendra Kumar and Dinesh Gupta, Cakewalk is slated for October release.
