Esha Gupta is one lucky girl. The model who will be making her Bollywood debut in ‘Jannat 2’ opposite Emraan Hashmi is making waves even before the film has hit the theatres. The gorgeous Delhi girl has not only signed two more films (Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Raaz 3’ and Prakash Jha’s ‘Chakravyuh’) but has also found a fan in filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt.
Bhatt, who is also the producer of ‘Jannat 2’, is all praise for Esha. Speaking to a daily, the veteran filmmaker said, “Esha`s ethos is very Indian. She looks like Angelina Jolie but she has the flavour of India still in her. She knows that sensuality is an essential attribute of the female animal. However the mystique needs to be retained as a survival tool. Esha celebrates her feminine body and yet her ambition is rooted in real India. She has taken a quantum leap from Jannat-2 to Raaz-3 and she has a high emotional quotient and the ability to respond when she is challenged. She came back the other day from an outdoor shoot and I asked her `how did your schedule go?` She replied, `They thought I look like Angelina Jolie but they also commented that I act like Smita Patil.` That reveals her. That is the way she wants the world to perceive her.”
Considering that bold and sexy roles are the norm these days, would we see Esha doing a ‘Jism’ ever in her career? The actress says that will take a while. “I can`t shake of the image of Bipasha walking out of the water in a white dress with a soaked chiselled body. But you`ll have to wait for a sexy me, till someone offers something sexy.“
Considering that many already compare you to the sexy Jolie, the sexy roles will be coming your way very soon, Esha!
