Wearing a bikini on screen today isn't a big deal, Lara Dutta
Lara Dutta is now ready with another laugh riot Housefull which she says is mad but not mindless. "It's not a mindless comedy. It has a tight screenplay. So if you are not following because of all the confusion, you might lose the plot somewhere. It's a big entertainer with great music with great comic talent. We hope we entertain," said ex Miss Universe Lara Dutta.
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Sajid Khan, Housefull revolves around Aarush (Akshay Kumar), who believes his bad luck will disappear if he finds true love. In his quest for love, one lie leads to another and different people from various walks of life come together adding more confusion and chaos.
"It goes by the literary meaning of it. There is one house crowded with people. One person has three wives and children. These wives also have some complications. Time comes when all family members are together and confusion takes off, and that's what the film is all about," Lara added.
Lara is doing another comedy after Bhagam Bhaag, Partner and Do Knot Disturb "I like doing comedy; so most of the films I do are comedy films. Comedy is something that works. Last year I did Billu, which was in a different space, 'Blue' was an action film and Do Not Disturb was a comedy. You know you have to pick and find your balance somewhere," said Lara.
"I would like to take a break from comedy and do something else. I have already shortlisted what I want to do, but I haven't signed any." said Lara as she is now plans to try other genres.
"We were tossing things around when we were in the initial stages of the script. We didn't know whether she is going to be Parsi, Punjabi or Gujarati. I got bored of playing Punjabi characters and so I insisted that my character be not made a Punjabi," Lara added. In Housefull, Lara's character works in a casino, meets someone, falls in love and gets married
Lara Dutta has worn a bikini yet again in Sajid Khan'sHousefull, explains why. "Wearing a bikini on screen today isn't a big deal. But I do it only for valid reasons. When we were shooting for the song in Italy on the beach, Farah, who has choreographed the song, said why not put on a beach wear. I have no problems with that." Lara added.
