Not been spotted in movies of late, this 'Khallas' girl has been keeping herself busy with hospitality, not just at home.


At Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Landran, to judge the Maruti Suzuki Colours of Youth contest on Sunday, Eesha Koppikhar starts off by saying, "I'm a thorough foodie!"

Then, as if to prove her point, the pretty lady sits herself down on the food table, doesn't wait for the rest of the lunch to be served (unlike others), and gobbles up the dahi bhalla kept in front of her.

The lunch begins, and a waiter is summoned midway to be reminded that the lady is still waiting for her paneer. Her love affair, then, becomes obvious. And it reflects in what she has been keeping herself busy with ever since her previous project, Shabri (2011)-hospitality. Once known for her item number, the actor now plans to serve delectable items on your plate, with Soul Konnect Hospitality.

"It's not just actors who don't eat much these days. Everyone aims at eating healthy and keeping fit. Through my hospitality company, I want to introduce new concepts to bring about some changes in people's eating habits. I want to serve only healthy food," says she.

Where there is food, there is Punjab! "I love Punjab so much that I would definitely want to do a Punjabi movie, provided I am offered a good script, backed by a good producer. I have tried my hand at various languages such as Tamil, Telegu and Kannada. At present, I'm working on a Marathi movie."

Another fact that is not known to many is that Eesha is a black belt in Taekwondo. "I have been practicing Taekwondo for the past 10 years. It's one of the forms of Hapkido and is all about self-defence. The best bit is that it doesn't require too much effort, so it should be learned by every woman."
