Is newbie Esha Gupta being sidelined to make way for senior actress Bipasha Basu? That's a rumour which has been making rounds for quite some time ever since the promos of RAAZ 3 went on air. ''Enough is enough' could well be director Vikram Bhatt's call as he comes clean on the so-called 'issue''.
Vikram reasons, ''When you have to bring the true might of Jai and Veeru before the audience, you can't do that without introducing Gabbar. Audience need to know who is the person creating havoc in the lives of the protagonist. This is the reason why it made sense to well establish Bipasha's character. Now as we talk, we would be seeing more of Emraan as well.''
Meanwhile how about Esha Gupta? Apparently she was miffed with Bhatts as she feels she is missing out on her fair share of promotion.

''See, I can understand from her point of view if she is feeling that way. After all, amongst all the people in the film, she has the least amount of work to her credit. In her life she has done just JANNAT 2 due to which she is way down in the ladder,' says Vikram in a stable tone, ''She has got a lot of names to deal with right from the cast to the crew. In this forest made of big trees, she is this new tree which is fighting for sun and rain. Having said that, she is a tremendous talent and has given a fantastic performance. She has done really well in the film and it is a matter of less than a month before she comes on her own.''
We would know when the film releases all over in 3D as well as 2D on 7th September.
