Former Miss Universe Lara Dutta decided to turn her attention towards production with ‘Chalo Dilli’, a rather out of the box comedy film starring Vinay Pathak in the lead. The actress, who was getting prepped for the sequel of the same titled ‘Chalo China’, will now star in the film produced by her husband and sports legend Mahesh Bhupathi which also will mark her comeback in the film industry.
The film in question tentatively titled ‘Abhi Nahi To Kabhi Nahi’ is said to be a quirky family drama and Lara Dutta will be seen playing the role of a small town girl and daughter of veteran actor Pankaj Kapur.
Also, the actress will be seen as an independent woman who runs a cafe and later falls in love with Kay Kay Menon, an aspiring hotelier. Known for his unconventional and grey roles in Bollywood, it will be a rare scene to see Kay Kay as the man head over heels in love in this comedy drama.
Lara Dutta has been on a maternity break for about three years and recently the actress also announced her television debut as the mentor cum judge of Miss Diva 2014 with about 15 pretty contestants participating in it.
Moreover, Lara will also be focusing on other Bollywood projects as she has previously mentioned about ‘Chalo China’ which too will star her former co-star Vinay Pathak and it will be shot across Asia, in Malaysia, Thailand and China. On the other hand, ‘Abhi Nahi To Kabhi Nahi’ will go on floor in December and it will be extensively shot in North India.
