For a change, Lara Dutta will be seen in a fullfledged comedy role in the film Chalo Dilli. She is paired opposite Vinay Pathak who has the reputation of being the best comedian in Bollywood today. They play a mismatched couple with each of them having diametrically opposite attitudes and eccentricities. This is also sort of road film where the couple encounter bizarre events while traveling together.
The film is the own production of Lara Dutta and her husband Mahesh. It is a co-production with Eros International in association with Big Daddy Productions of Globosport and Bheegi Basanti Productions. The film is directed by Shashant Shah of Dasvidaniya fame.
Chalo Dilli is due for release in May and Lara Dutta is having high hopes on its success.
