MUMBAI: Esha Gupta, who made her debut in Bhatt production’s ‘Jannat 2’ as the love interest of Emraan Hashmi, has already landed two more movies – ‘Raaz 3’ and ‘Chakravyuh’.
"Emraan has been lucky for me. My second film is with him, and I’ve already signed my third film," said the model turned actress.
After sizzling on screen, Esha will be seen in a straightforward, non-glamourous role of a cop for Prakash Jha’s forthcoming political thriller, ‘Chakravyuh’
"It is a de-glam role. I am playing an IPS officer. You will see me in the uniform, it is a different role. When you see the film, you will get to know more about the role. I can’t talk much about it. Prakash Sir had heard about me and his casting director called me up saying he liked me in the promos and wants to work with me. I was confident about what I was doing, so I just told him, sir if you direct me well, I will give you what you want, I am ready to mould myself in any form you want. We did the reading and he was impressed by my Hindi, as I come from Uttar Pradesh background. I still don’t know the whole script, but I heard Prakash sir’s name and jumped on to do it," said Gupta
Filmed in Bhopal, ‘Chakravyuh’ is set against the backdrop of the Naxal movement. Scheduled to release in November this year, the film also features Abhay Deol, Arjun Rampal, Om Puri and Kabir Bedi.
