MUMBAI: Actress Esha Gupta might be taking slow steps to establish a strong footing in the Hindi film industry but the “Raaz 2” star is already eyeing Hollywood and says it is next on her wishlist.
The 30-year-old actress, whose looks have long been compared with Hollywood star Angelina Jolie’s, says she is hoping to begin a career in the West soon.
“I would really love to do a Hollywood film. I have not tried anything now. Not even given any audition or meeting but I am looking forward to it. I think that’s my next plan,” Esha told PTI.
Heaping praise on Bollywood stars Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, who are gearing up for their big Hollywood debuts, Esha said the two actresses have taken India to the next level, globally.
“I respect Priyanka and Deepika, where they have reached. They have taken not only themselves but India on a different level of map. We have sportsmen who are known and otherwise there are film stars who are more famous than anyone,” she said.
“People may not know who is the PM but they will know which country a particular star comes from. Now, people are going to say Priyanka and Deepika are from India.”
Esha will be next seen in Akshay Kumar-starrer “Rustom”, which hits theatres on August 12.
Her other forthcoming ventures include Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s “Commando 2” and Milan Luthria’s next directorial venture “Baadshaho”, alongside Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi.
