Lara Dutta, the former Miss Universe, who acted in Tamil cinema thirteen years ago, is back to the Tamil cinema industry, with the latest Vikram starrer titled David. The pretty former Miss Universe’s last work in Tamil cinema was Arasatchi, which also starred actor Arjun in the lead. However, Lara Dutta became quite famous in the Bollywood industry, where she has many super hits to her credits with the likes of Andaaz, Partner, Housefull and Don 2. For your information, she is also the wife of the India’s leading tennis player, Mahesh Bhupathi.
When Bejoy Nambiyar, the director of David, spoke to the media, he confirmed that he has recruited Lara Dutta for his project. He said that the character for which he has roped in Lara Dutta is a specially sketched one. He added that only Lara Dutta could do justice to that character, and hence, he had convinced her to play that role in all the versions of his movie. When asked, he declined to reveal the type of the character, but said it is the pivotal role in David other than the Vikram’s role. He further said that it was tough to convince Lara to accept the deal, as her daughter, Saira, is just a few months old.
The movie project titled David is actually a multi starrer which features Vikram in the lead role. The movie is also a trilingual, to be made simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. In addition to Vikram playing the lead role, actor Jiiva too will share the screen space with him in an important role in Tamil and Telugu versions of the movie. The Hindi version will have actor Vinay Virmani essaying Jiiva’s role. Moreover an ensemble cast is playing the important roles in the movie with the likes of Nasser, Rohini Hattangadi, Tabu and Isha Sharvani.
