Esha Gupta is the new face in Raaz 3 who has replaced Jacqueline Fernandez in the film. Recently Jacqueline Fernandez had walked out of ‘Krissh 3’ also over an issue of kiss. Now she has lost Raaz 3. Vikram Bhatt has casted Esha Gupta replacing Jackie.
Post the success of Murder 2 Jacqueline had become apple of Bhatt banner. She was then approached and finalized for the third series in Raaz. The movie was expectedly made in 3D format. But the filmmakers have now called quits to the contract signed between them and Jacqueline.
Jacqueline actually denied wearing some skimpy dresses in the movie. Earlier she had no issues in donning revealing clothes. But her beau Sajid Khan has problem in Jacqueline wearing revealing outfits. Hence Jacqueline also finds issue now in wearing sparse wardrobe. Mukesh Bhatt has hinted that Jackie’s decision is influenced by her beau Sajid Khan.
Reports also tell that Jacqueline has sealed a contract with the Bhatts where she has accepted to do intimate scenes and wear glamorous costumes. However after sometime she refused to do so. Jacqueline who was to play Bipasha Basu’s younger sister in Raaz 3 is now replaced by Esha Gupta.
Her beau Sajid Khan has advised the actress that if she wishes to become an A list actress she has to refuse doing B grade roles in sleazy films. We guess, Jackie has taken Sajid’s words seriously and so has taken this move.
Mahesh Bhatt confirms the news saying, “Yes. Jacqueline is not in Raaz 3 anymore. Actor Esha Gupta will be playing the role instead. Everyone knows she’s on remote control. Only time will tell who made a blunder, us or Jackie”.
Esha Gupta is more than happy to be a part of 3rd film of Bhatt camp. She is the lead actress in Jism 2, Jannat 2 opposite Emraan Hashmi and also in Raaz 3 now. Even Jacqueline has her hands full of projects. She is busy with Housefull 2 and Race 2.
