The year 2012 can also be called the year of the sequels because most of the movies that are going to be released are sequels and there is one more addition to that list. Vishesh Films has decided that they would like to make a sequel of their super hit movie Jannat that came out in 2008. However, the producers were looking for a better face for the sequel and had some talks with Prachi Desai and Bengali actress Paoli Dam but they have finally decided to go for Esha Gupta who has been signed for the film Jannat 2.
Kunal Deshmukh, diretor of Jannat 2 wanted some really bold and sensual girl who can take up the role of Emraan Hashmi’s wife in the sequel and therefore they decided to go for Esha Gupta who won Miss India International 2007. She has good looks and sex appeal and that would definitely be a plus factor for Esha. Earlier Prachi Desai was selected for the role but the producers felt that Prachi was not really hot and sensual as the role demanded. On the other hand, Prachi was not really in her comfort zone playing the character and therefore the deal broke off.
After that Mahesh Bhatt decided to rope in the Bengali actress Paoli Dam for the role and she was willing to go for a sensual role, but Kunal Deshmukh already had found the Jannat 2 girl in Esha Gupta. He managed to convince Vishesh Films and Mahesh Bhatt that Esha Gupta is the right face that would look great opposite Emraan on the screen. Jannat 2 will also have Randeep Hooda and Imran Zahid who will be making his debut in the movie. The music for the film will be done by Pritam and the movie shooting starts today.
