Bollywood actress Esha Gupta is taking social media by storm with her “bold” and revealing photos. In recent days, after posting her “bold photos” on Instagram, talented actress has amassed more followers than her Bollywood counterpart Poonam Pandey.
Till a few months back, Poonam Pandey was seen as an uncontrollable social media star – both on Instagram and Twitter – whose rise was mainly due to her provocative photos and social commentaries. Her position was under threat for a short time when sensational master Sherlyn Chopra too took to Twitter with her bold cucumber photos. But, she soon fizzled out leaving Ms Pandey the #1 and “most searched” Indian celeb on Google, again.
As of today: These are the stats on Instagram showing Esha Gupta has overtaken Poonam Pandey (Will we see a congratulatory message from Ms Poonam?).
On Instagram, Esha is the new winner (as of today)
However, on Twitter Poonam Pandey still rule the roost on Twitter (as of today).
Now, Esha Gupta, winner of the Miss India International title of 2007, appears to take the “show the skin” route after making a promising film career in the 2012 thriller Jannat 2. For that role, she got was nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. Later, she also got good reviews for her role in Chakravyuh and Raaz 3D. However, her career path took a dive in 2014 when her film Humshakals received one of the most negative reviews in Bollywood. She made a comeback with another thriller Rustom in 2016, but her Bollywood presense was almost nil. Very few people knew her.
Rumor mills in Bollywood claimed that it was her media policy responsible for the lack of her current state. No sooner than a few weeks later, she started posting photos with fewer clothes on her on her Instagram page. Soon, enough, it got the attention of the so-called Indian national newspapers like Times of India who featured her photos on their website for days together with a healine “Esha Gupta posts bold pic on Instagram”.
Looking at the response on Instagram and some news media websites, Esha Gutpa’s gamble with “bold” photos is working.
Ms Gupta clearly has taken over Ms Pandey – both in terms of acting and modelling. While Ms Poonam Pandey failed to get any serious films in the last few years, Ms Gupta is getting big banner productions. One such upcoming film is with one of Bollywood’s biggest stars – Ajay Devgn. The film titled Baadshaho will be released on September 1, 2017.
