Esha Gupta is having a good time in the the Indian film industry after delivering two back two back hits, Jannat 2 and Raaz 3. And now, there’s more to look forward to for this beautiful actress. As per reports, Esha is all set to play the lead role in the Indian version of the popular Angelina Jolie starrer Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
Well, we guess that the striking resemblance Esha has to Angelina Jolie has certainly benefited the actress as she will get a chance to do all the high octane action scenes and reprise Angelina’s role.
Esha has often been referred to as the Indian Angelina Jolie, as she resembles her. And this being the main reason, an International co-production (Indo-American) has signed her to play the Indian Lara Croft.
Esha was approached for the role as she’s tall and has a very athletic physique. Obviously, her looks are an advantage, as those who’ve seen the original will be able to connect with the film better. This is a huge project for her, considering there will be a Hollywood studio backing it along with Indian producers.
A source said: “Due to Esha’s back to back hits in a row, the makers did not have any double thoughts before approaching her.”
As of now, Esha is working for another project which will also be produced by Vishesh films, as she has signed a 3 film contract with the production house.
