Actress Esha Gupta seems to have become the new blue eyed-girl in the Bhatt camp. After doing two back-to-back films with the production house, run by filmmakers Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt, the actor is likely to do a thirdfilm with them.
The pretty actor made her debut with the Bhatts in Jannat 2, opposite actor Emraan Hashmi. She then went on to star in their next film, Raaz 3, which also had actor Bipasha Basu getting back with the Bhatts. “This year, Esha Gupta has definitely proven to be the lucky charm for the production house. She starred in two back-to-back films with them – Jannat 2 and Raaz 3 – and both turned out to be hits, commanding a good opening at the box-office (BO). Whereas Raaz 3 did fantastic business at the BO within first three days of its release, Jannat 2 had a good turnout as well. Esha herself was critically acclaimed for her performances in both the films. Thus, it’s not surprising that the Bhatts consider her lucky and want to collaborate with her again.”
The actress, who recently starred in director Prakash Jha’s multi-starrer Chakravyuh, has been busy with her debut on TV show Supercars. The source further adds, “The Bhatts are considering her for one of their upcoming flicks, which will be their third with the leggy beauty. They are very happy with her work and her professional attitude. Though it’s too early to talk about it, they are definitely considering her for their next film and are lining up a good offer keeping her in mind.”
Esha has also spoken at length about her love for action films. In an earlier interview she’d said, “One big film that I would love to do in my life is a full-on action film and not the sexy kind of action. It should have a lot of action, jumping off cars and buildings, with lots of blood and gore. I don’t know why I like such films but I feel I can do them.”
