Some of her followers questioned her for writing about the height of the man, saying that they are happy with their men who are not tall. Esha replied to them saying that the post was her personal opinion and was not meant to offend anyone. She also wrote that her post has got nothing to do with feminism and asked what her liking a tall man had anything to do with it, adding that it is an advantage for her, as she can wear heels. For some of them who got too aggressive with their comment, she had only one advice, “Stay in your lane.”

The mystery man however seems to be designer Nikhil Thampi, who also posted the same picture on his Instagram page and captioned it, “No one makes me laugh harder. Thanks for being my partner in crime @egupta. Also we are very very embarrassing together in public but that’s what makes our relationship SPECIAL.”
