In one of the first pictures of her look in the film, the actress poses in an avatar that bears uncanny resemblance to the famous Angelina Jolie [ Images ] character.
But a closer inspection led us to a shocking revelation.
The picture actually is of English fashion model and actress Karima Adebibe [ Images ], who was chosen in 2006 as the seventh model to be Lara Croft in popular video game Tomb Raider.
In what appears to be a result of a graphic designer's brainwave, Esha's face was superimposed on Karima for the film's first pictures.
