"Oh, gareebon ki Angelina Jolie."
Bollywood beauty Esha Gupta has opened up about constantly being compared to Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie.
The uncanny resemblance between the two beautiful ladies has got many people talking, however, Esha revealed that the comments have not always been kind.
During an Instagram Live session with BollywoodLife, Esha disclosed how she does not see the comparison. She said:
“I’ll be honest, I still don’t see it. Well, I may have seen it a couple of times when people do that collage with two posters.
“So, at that time, the pictures they actually picked up, even I was like, ‘Okay, maybe.’
“The thing is though how we see ourselves like literally, I’m not saying deep inside but how we see our looks, people see us differently.
“And it took me some time to realise that, so in my head, I don’t see that at all, not even one bit.”
Esha went on to state that she believes that she looks like her mother. She said:
“Also, for me, I’ve always felt that I look like my mother. But when people say it and like I said, when they put pictures together, then I’m like, ‘Yeah, maybe.”
Esha Gupta continued to mention how the cruel comments used to annoy her. She said:
“She’s one of the hottest women. You know what annoys me, well not anymore, but what used to annoy me was when people would be nasty earlier and would love to troll.
“Now they’ve become less bitter. However, people would call me, ‘Oh, gareebon ki Angelina Jolie.’
“And I used to say, ‘Yeah, but you’re calling yourself gareeb there.’ I’m not saying that I did not ask to look like this, it’s my parents’ production and I look like this.”
Esha further added:
“It took me some time to realise the fact that there will be a small section of people who will always be unhappy with whatever you do.
“Not just for me, but for everyone. That’s how they are and I just stopped caring about it after a point.”
“Look at her though, she’s not only one of the hottest, I really wish I had talent like her or be where she is … I really wish that.”
After being crowned Miss India International 2007, Esha Gupta ventured into Bollywood.
She has starred in films like Jannat 2 (2012), Humshakals (2014), Raaz 3D (2012), Total Dhamaal (2019) and more.
