Esha Gupta signed opposite Emraan Hashmi for Jannat 2

Prachi Desai and Paoli Dam’s loss is Miss India International winner 2007, Esha Gupta‘s gain. Esha Gupta’s looks and sex appeal have helped her get the lead
role in Vishesh Films Jannat 2, a sequel to the 2008 super hit film Jannat.

The role in question is that of Emraan Hashmi’s wife in Jannat 2 and the films director Kunal Deshmukh wanted someone bold and sensual for the role.
Prachi Desai was signed on for the role but the makers of the film apparently re-considered their decision to cast Prachi in the lead role, on the pretext
that she was not as sensual as her role demanded her to be and Prachi too was not comfortable with her character and they parted ways amicably.

Mahesh Bhatt then recommended the Bengali actress Paoli Dam as she had the body language and the willingness to go all out for the film and met the
requirements of the narrative. But Kunal seemed to be adamant on casting Esha right from the time he saw her as he felt she was perfect for the role. After a
lot of discussions, Kunal managed to convince Mahesh Bhatt and co-producers Fox Star Studios.

Jannat 2 also stars Randeep Hooda and newcomer Imran Zahid. The music will be composed by Pritam. Esha will start shooting for the film in Delhi from
October 7.
