Kareena Kapoor might not be working with her husband in any of his forthcoming films, but she seems to be influencing the choice of actresses working with Saif Ali Khan. Now, when Esha Gupta has been signed opposite Saif in Sajid Khan’s next, it’s said that the decision could have something to do with Bebo.
It’s no news now that director Sajid Khan has dropped his ex-girlfriend Jacqueline Fernandez to rope in Esha Gupta for his next that stars Saif Ali Khan in lead. As per reports, it was Kareena Kapoor, who referred Esha first to Saif, and then the hubby dear passed the word on to Sajid.
Kareena Kapoor came in contact with Esha Gupta on the sets of her film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein. Esha has done a special item song for the film and both the actresses get along well. “It was during the film’s shooting that Esha got to know Kareena... It was at the same time Sajid was looking for a heroine for his film. Kareena happened to tell Saif about Esha and that’s how a meeting took place between Esha and the director and that’s how she came on board,” a source tells a tabloid.
Though last year was quite good for Esha in terms of three releases, she wasn’t getting any major film after Prakash Jha’s Chakravyuh. Till now, Esha hasn’t done a full-fledged masala caper. Also, her roles in her past films were devoid of glamour, thus getting a Sajid Khan film is a win-win situation for the actress.
Sajid Khan’s next is a multi-starrer comedy, also starring Riteish Deshmukh and Tamannaah besides Esha Gupta and Saif Ali Khan.
