To begin with, the 37-year-old actress says she was more like a tomboy and was told the same by everyone around her. She further adds how she detested cooking and couldn’t see herself there. “I was very committed and would like to concentrate on my profession with my heart but the kitchen was never a place that I would love to be.” So, you hated cooking? Esha laughs aloud and admits, “Yes, I never liked cooking at all but now I have started cooking and learning to make the dishes he relishes for the love of my husband. Husband ke liye toh yeh sab karna hi padta hai (You have to do it for your husband). Bharat is a non-vegetarian while I am not but you have to cook the dishes that he likess like Goan prawn curry. I first started learning to cook the food I loved to eat. I also love baked stuff so I learned baking cakes first,” says Esha who explored cooking while she was dating Bharat Takhtani. “I must give Bharat the credit for making me love cooking,” she adds.
