MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Esha Deol, who played a negative role in the action-thriller franchise ‘Dhoom’ (2004), has wished the British-Indian actress – Katrina Kaif luck for her lead role as a villain in the upcoming ‘Dhoom 3’.
‘Dhoom 3’ written, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Aditya Chopra will continue to feature the two main characters portrayed by Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra from the first of the series.
Superstar Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif will replace Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from ‘Dhoom 2’ as the bad a** villains.
Katrina and co-star Aamir who have been in the news following their rigorous work out for being the perfect villains, are the new entrants into the franchise. They have much to live up to, as the previous installments of the series have a big fan following.
“I am sad that I am not a part of the whole franchise. But I wish Katrina lives up to the expectations that come with the ‘Dhoom’ tag. I am sure she will because she is a brilliant actress,” said Esha.
The daughter of two great legends Hema Malini and Dharmendra, Esha delivered one of the major hits of her career with the Aditya Chopra film. The diva was seen in bikini tops, sporting well toned abs in ‘Dhoom’. She also delivered the sexy dance number ‘Dhoom macha le’ which was the film’s title track.
The 31-year-old actress, tied the knot with businessman Bharat Takhtani in June, 2012. Esha, who was last seen in mother Hema Malini’s ‘Tell Me O Kkhuda’ says she doesn’t mind coming back to Bollywood.
“If any decent and respectful offer comes up then I will be a part of it. Acting is my first love and I am really looking forward to it,” she concludes.
