Lara Dutta “Wants to Direct and Produce”

Lara Dutta is back with a bang, her portray of “Imli” in “Singh is Bliing” is a testament of her acting and comic timing skills.

Now the actress is all set of revive her production banner Bheegi Basanti Entertainment!

Lara Dutta launched her first production house with the 2011 film Chalo Dilli, starring her and Vinay Pathak.

Currently its sequel, Chalo China, was announced in March 2014, but due to creative difference no progress has been made on the film.

“That film is locked and loaded. We have had some issues in the past; there have been blockages with the previous setup. Once we get past that, we will see,” says Lara, when asked about the delay.

“I am not a huge production house like UTV or Eros with 15 directors on board. I want to make films that are high on content and not huge blockbusters. Such stories won’t come by everyday — it’s not like you go shopping and get it in the chana market (laughs). But now I have got two lovely scripts, and I will talk more about that when the time is right. You will see more of me and my production ventures next year,” adds Lara.

Lara next will be seen in cameo appearance in Fitoor and Azhar, where she plays Azhar’s lawyer.

Besides returning to acting and producing, Lara is also planning to take up direction in the near future.

“I would love to direct, but technically I am not prepared for it. My energies are focused on producing my two films. Mahesh and I have been thinking about me going back and studying direction and I want to do that,” Lara adds.
