In her upcoming web series Chamak, Esha plays a musician from a small town in Punjab.

The web series features Isha in the lead role of popular Punjabi pop star Jasmine Kaur, aka Jazz, and traces her journey from a small town in Punjab to international limelight.


Eisha says, “My character is that of a musician who goes on to become a huge international sensation. When I was creating the era of without glamor for my character or trying to understand my character's way of thinking, the first thought that came to my mind was writer and poetess Amrita Pritam. As I started reading about her and her writings, I found a lot of similarities between my character and poetess Amrita, because Amrita Pritam and my character believe in unconditional love and both talk about it and have the ability to talk very simply. Amrita Pritam's relevant writing, which talks about pure love, helped me understand the unconditional love that my character Jazz feels for the person she is madly in love with. Amrita Pritam's writing style is absolutely unique"
