Actress Esha Gupta, who is foraying into television as the host of National Geographic Channel's all new season of Supercars, says she is here to set trends and not follow them.
Actors mostly venture into TV shows after having done a wide range of work in films. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan debuted when he was in his 50s and even actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan entered small screen after establishing themselves in the film industry.
But Esha wants to change it all, having been roped in as a host for the second season of Nat Geo Supercars premiering on October 22.
"I do not believe in following things. I am not here to follow any trend. I want to do things on my own, things that I believe in," Esha said in an interview in Mumbai.
"I just got an offer for the show and I felt this was something different. I really liked the concept and decided to do it. The show is informative in many ways about cars, right from how the interiors of a car is made, the seats, the cover etc," she said.
The show, a sheer treat for car enthusiasts, will see Esha talking about various cars across the world. She will reveal the science, technology, behind the scenes and manufacturing stories.
"I am extremely passionate about cars and an adrenaline junkie. Usually this kind of a show is done by men but I am happy that I got to do it. All women and young girls out there will be aware about the cars through the perspective of a woman," Esha said.
