PIX: Meet the Gorgeous Ladies in 2012's Movie Sequels
Movie sequels have become a fad.
And while the actors are usually repeated in the follow-ups, the sequels usually star a different female cast.
We take a look at the gorgeous women in some of the upcoming sequels this year.
Esha Gupta, Jannat 2
Jannat actress Sonal Chauhan has been replaced by another newcomer, Esha Gupta. Emraan Hashmi will reprise his role in the sequel.
Esha has signed a three-film contract with Mahesh Bhatt's Vishesh Films after Jannat 2. The other films featuring her will be Raaz 3 in 3D and Murder 3.

Sunny Leone, Jism 2
Almost 10 years after Bipasha Basu and John Abraham made Jism a hit comes its sequel, starring Sunny Leone and Dino Morea.
Sunny will also be seen in the sequel to Ekta Kapoor's horror hit, Ragini MMS.

Sonakshi Sinha, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2
After Dabangg, it looks like every director wants to work with Sonakshi Sinha.
The actress, who has as many as five releases this year, will also feature in the sequels of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and of course, Dabangg.

Bipasha Basu, Ghayal Returns
Sunny Deol has roped in Bipasha in the sequel to the 1990 hit, Ghayal. Let's hope this film gives Bips the hit she badly needs.
