Esha Gupta is riding high with two back to back successes with JANNAT 2 and RAAZ 3 and recently we heard that the actor is set to play the lead role in the desi version of Angelina Jolie, starrer LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER (2001).

Resemblance to Angelina Jolie may have got Gupta a chance to reprise the Hollywood star's role in the film's Hindi version.

Esha has often been referred to as the Indian Angelina Jolie, as she resembles her. Now, this resemblance has got her a huge project. She has been signed for an International co-production (Indo-American) to play the Indian Lara Croft.

Esha was approached for the role as she's tall and has a very athletic physique. Obviously, her looks are an advantage, as those who've seen the original will be able to connect with the film better. This is a huge project for her, considering there will be a Hollywood studio backing it along with Indian producers.

A close insider says, ''Due to Esha's back to back hits in a row, the makers did not have any double thoughts before approaching her.''

Apart from this project, the actor will also be seen in another Vishesh Films movie, thus completing her three-film contract with the banner.
