Mumbai: Esha Gupta may be looking forward to her B-Town debut but at the same time the newbie is learning how to contend with the woes of wearing high heels!

While shooting for a promo of her upcoming film with Emraan Hashmi, the model-turned-actress missed a step and ended up with a twisted ankle. To make matters worse, she had to shoot for a song for another project the following day.

Says a unit source, “She sprained her ankle during the promo shoot. Initially, Esha ignored it and continued working but she started experiencing pain. Yet she took it in her stride and managed to complete the shoot in her stilettos before slipping into a pair of flats.”

Adds the source, “By next morning, her ankle had begun swelling up and needed medication. But there was no way she could skip the song shoot as the dates had been fixed much in advance. She reported for the shoot and managed to do the steps resulting in a completely swollen ankle.”

Esha was then advised rest and to stick to flat footwear for a while. As reported ‘Esha kept under wraps’ the beauty pageant winner and calendar girl has been asked to keep a low profile till the release of her film. She has been advised to stay away from the media glare, as they are keen that her first look hits the screens before she starts making public appearances.

Incidentally, Esha had replaced Jacqueline Fernandez in the Emraan starrer, after the latter decided to opt out of doing steamy scenes for the project at the behest of her ‘good friend’ director Sajid Khan.
