Lara Dutta’s career seems to have gotten a new lease of life what with top projects coming her way thick and fast. After bagging a pivotal part in Akshay Kumar’s ”Singh Is Bling” and an interesting role in Abhishek Kapoor’s Aditya Roy Kapur-Katrina Kaif-starrer ”Fitoor”, the actress is closing a deal with Ekta Kapoor for the upcoming biopic on former cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin.

Although a year away from release, the film has generated lots of buzz after the one-minute teaser which was launched last month featuring Emraan Hashmi who plays the title role. While Nargis Fakhri will essay the role of Azhar’s second wife Sangeeta Bijlani, Nimrat Kaur (of The Lunchbox and Homeland fame) was supposed to play the role of a lawyer.

The actress opted out due to unknown reasons. But since the film goes on floors in July, the makers don’t have much time to be involved in casting crisis and have promptly started negotiating with Lara, who’s shown interest in the film and is likely to board the project soon.

“Lara has been given a narration and the deal should be sealed in a couple of weeks. It’s a very strong role, one that fits her personality quite well. The modalities are currently being worked out. Once the remuneration is agreed upon, the project will move forward with her,” a source told.

Also starring Prachi Desai in the role of Azhar’s first wife, the film directed by Tony D’souza is slated for a summer 2016 release.

The silent tiff between Twinkle Khanna and Lara Dutta was a long know fact. But recently it has been found that the two have been bonding big time.

Lara Dutta is working with Akshay Kumar in ‘Singh is Bling’. While Twinkle often visits the sets with her daughter, Lara too, brings her daughter on the sets. And both their daughters have become playmates.

A Deccan Chronicle report quoted a source from the sets saying, “The two were overheard talking about the importance of taking a break from their respective careers to spend time with their children. In fact, even their respective daughters were seen having a gala time on the sets, being the centre of attention.”

Actor-filmmaker Prabhudheva, who is directing “Singh Is Bliing”, says Lara Dutta will be a surprise package in the film.

“I was impressed by Lara’s performance in the film. She is a surprise package… she is superb. I can’t reveal anything about her character at this point of time, but we have shot all the major portions of the film with Lara and she is too good with her work,” Prabhudheva told IANS.

“Singh Is Bliing’ features Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson apart from Lara. It is releasing on October 2.

Asked about the chemistry between Akshay and Amy in the film, he said: “I know it’s an unusual pairing, and their chemistry is too good. You all will realise it once you watch the film.“

Lara Dutta Bhupathi sails into the office, cool in a sundress, orders a black coffee, sinks into a chair and a “Phew!” escapes past her lips. “Life is far more hectic when you’re focusing on three people instead of one. I wasn’t so busy when I was just a movie star,” says Lara who today is the supportive wife of tennis ace, Mahesh Bhupathi, a multi-tasking homemaker and hands-on mummy to Saira, who now that her three year old is enjoying playdates and sleepovers, is slowly getting back to the archlights.

She’s just returned from a schedule of ‘Singh is Bling’ in Goa. “We shot a song on the beach. The last time I did a song was for ‘Don 2′, four years ago. And now I had to perform Prabhudheva’s choreography,” says Lara who agreed to be a part of the unconventional love triangle because Akshay Kumar is an old friend. ‘Fitoor’ was another film she accepted because she’s known director Abhishek Kapoor since she was 17. He’d come to her with his first film, ‘Aryan’. She didn’t have dates then but now she’s a part of his Indianised Great Expectations. “Mine is the only character who’s not in Charles Dickens’s book. She fills a void in artist Noor’s (Aditya Roy-Kapur) life as friend and mentor till he abruptly loses her,” explains Lara who after two days of shoot, fractured her foot but was back on the sets after three days and five days after ‘Fitoor’, was going Blingy in Goa. “That’s an actor’s glamorous life,” she smiles.
