Lara Dutta, the winner of the Miss Universe 2000 pegaent and popular Bollywood actress, is a multi-talented personality. After starring in some notable films, Dutta branched out to film production in 2011 and made her debut as a producer with a comic-caper Chalo Dilli (2011). Apart from bankrolling the project, she also played an important character in it alongside talented actor Vinay Pathak.

Unfortunately, Chalo Dilli failed to create any spark at the box-office and turned out to be a money-losing affair for the actress turned producer. Now, nine years after the debacle of Chalo Dilli, the news is coming in that Lara Dutta is set to don the producer’s hat once again. This time around, she is looking forward to teaming up with a UK-based production house for an international collaboration.

Confirming the same, the actress tells a leading publication, “I am in the process of producing a film with a UK based production house.” She goes on to add that though she began work at a brisk pace, the project has come to a standstill due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Talking about the concept of her upcoming untitled movie, Lara says, “It is a story based in India. It is not a fiction film and is based on facts. It is on the lines of Lion (2016) or Million Dollar Arm (2014).” When asked if her fans will see her acting in the movie, she says, “I will have no time left to act in this one.”

The actress reveals that she is already occupied with two upcoming web projects. “I have signed up for two web shows. I have never acted in web series before. I think the writing for web shows is brilliant. The women characters are far more superior,” Dutta says in conclusion.
