Esha Gupta: The desi Lara Croft
It’s been an incredible 2012 for Esha Gupta with back-to-back hits Jannat 2 (2012), Chakravyuh (2012) and Raaz 3D (2012). Riding high on success, the gorgeous actress is all geared up to play the desi version of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001). The role was immortalized on screen by none other than Angelina Jolie and is one of the most recalled roles of her career.
Apart from her acting skills and her screen presence, the uncanny resemblance of Esha Gupta to Angelina Jolie helped her bag this role. This grand project will be an International co-production (Indo-American) and as of now only one film from the series will be made. Esha’s athletic physique and height makes her standout in the crowd. It’s yet to be seen whether the makers change the original script or remake it.
The fact that her previous two films were hits, the makers had no doubt about starring her as the desi Lara Croft. Apart from this project, the talented actor will also be seen in another Vishvesh Films movie. As of now everything related to the project has been kept under wraps. The news has created quite a stir on digital platforms. It’s no wonder that fans are calling her the ‘Indian Angelina Jolie’
