Mumbai: Actress Esha Gupta has revealed she will be seen kicking some butt in Ajay Devgn-starrer “Baadshaho”, a thriller set in 1970s.
The film is being directed by Milan Luthria, of “Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai” fame.
Esha also has the sequel to action film “Commando” in her kitty. The movie stars Vidyut Jamwal reprising his role from the original.
When asked if she will be seen doing action in “Commando 2”, the “Jannat 2” star told PTI, “No I don’t have any action in ‘Commando 2’. But I have action in ‘Baadshaho’. I am not playing a negative character in ‘Commando 2’ though. Even as I read it, I was like ‘who gave this?’ I can’t tell much, but it’s a very nice, cool role. Not negative.”
“Baadshaho” has an ensemble ast, which also includes Emraan Hashmi and Ileana D’Cruz.
Esha said she was overwhelmed when she got a call from Luthria’s office for the project.
“The first time I got a call, I was like ‘Is it Milan Luthria production and direction ?’ They said, ‘Direction, with Ajay and Emraan in the cast. I said, ‘let’s do it, when should I meet?'”
The actress, who has worked with Emraan in “Jannat 2” and “Raaz 3D” and in music video “Mai Rahoon and Ya Na Rahoon”, said she is excited to team up with the actor again.
“I messaged Emraan the other day when the news was out. I am so happy and excited to work with him again. Our jodi (pairing) has been liked a lot. The kind of roles we both have, it is very different from each other. It is going to be a very good film.”
Meanwhile, Esha will be next seen in “Rustom”, which stars Akshay Kumar and Ileana D’Cruz.
