Actor Lara Dutta, who was last seen in a lead role in her home production, Chalo Dilli (2011), says that she’s waiting for a nod from producer Boney Kapoor, to re-enter Bollywood with a bang. The former Miss Universe is expected to have a lead role in Kapoor’s upcoming film, No Entry Mein Entry, a sequel to No Entry (2005), that also starred Lara. “Whenever I ask Boneyji about the film, he says ‘abhi kuch dino mein shuru karenge...now we are ready...now we are ready... Salman Bhai has given his dates.’ He tells me this every month,” she laughs.
However, her connection with sequels doesn’t seem to end there. The 35-year-old actor is also set to produce the sequel to Chalo Dilli. “The film will again star Vinay Pathak and me. Right now it’s in its pre-production stage and we are planning to start its shoot by the end of March,” she shares, on a recent trip to the Capital.
Besides acting and production, the actor is busy trying out her hand in fashion designing too. She has tied up with a store in the city to design a range of saris. Ask her who among the Bollywood beauties she would want to dress in her creations, and she says, without a blink, “Sonam (Kapoor) and Deepika (Padukone).”
