Lara Dutta will be essaying the role of Shahrukh Khan’s moll in Don 2, the role that Eesha Koppikhar played in the original. Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra will essay the role of leading lady in the movie.

Icy winds started blowing the minute Priyanka landed on the Berlin airport. An insider revealed, “Lara was already there a week before PC. The two barely exchanged hellos with frosty smiles before they directed their warmth to SRK and the director Farhan Akhtar.”

These two beauties have had a long history. The two were crowned as Miss Universe and Miss World in the same year. They both started their career with the same movie Andaaz. Lara portrayed a role of grieving widow and had the author backed role, but it was Priyanka who walked away to stardom and the plum assignments with Khiladi No.1, Akshay Kumar. Since then, Lara has steered clear of working with PC, sources say that she was hesitant to sign Don 2 as well.

When Farhan assured her that he would flesh out her role, only then she agreed to sign the film. Also, SRK has a soft spot for Mahesh Bhupatis latest girlfriend, ever since she acted in his home production Billu, a part that every actress had refused.

Even without their past differences, things between them will never be easy. In Bollywood, whenever any two actresses shoot together, there is stress on the sets. The list of worries is endless; it starts from who has the better room, better fee, better clothes and it ends at better scenes. Piggy Chops was already wary, exhausted, and edgy when she reached Berlin a week after her former friend and now a rival had got comfortable with the unit. Over here Lara clearly has a head start.

These two divas have come face to face after six years and are not ready to act like the long lost friends. The biggest fact that they have uneven roles is enough reason for them to be suspicious about each other. One is promised to be the leading lady and the other has been promised an important role. The insecurities have already started to surface with both the ladies wanting to stay in their own corners for as long as they can.

A close source revealed, “To start with, their roles are unequal. If you see Eesha Koppikhar’s role in Don you will know what Lara is supposed to play. Priyanka has had a stressful dubbing and shoot, which she had to complete in two days. In addition, there was a section in the industry who wanted to demolish her performance in Anjaana Anjaani. She is left in a depressed state of mind. The last thing she would want in Berlin is stressful ambience.”

The two former Miss Universe beauties and Bollywood actresses Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta recently had shown ugly side of their ego on the sets of their upcoming film Do Knot Disturb. Things become so serious that they stopped talking to each other.

One of the unit members of the film said, “The icy vibes between the two actresses was palpable. There was no face-off as such nor did they speak ill about each other. All they did was greet each other with a customary ‘hi’ that too only when absolutely necessary.”

What made things worse between the two? “Sushmita clearly spoke about the issues, which were bothering her. She remained defiant despite explaining why Lara has been given more prominence,” said the source.

However, Lara also had her concerns. “Lara felt that Sushmita has been given more importance than her in the film’s promos, posters and the entire marketing campaign,” revealed the source.

When quizzed to the ladies about it, Sush didn’t replied, while Lara diplomatically said, “There was no such thing. Sushmita is a lovely, classy lady and a pleasure to work with.”

Vashu Bhagnani, producer of the film said, “I don’t want to talk about this.”

We can say that actress Lara Dutta is thinking seriously about comedy as she gets third comedy film in row. Previously Lara done comedy films like Partner and Bhagam Bhag, and so the actress is proud to be comedy actor. Lara will soon create laughs with her forthcoming films like Houseful and Do Knot Disturb.

Talking about Houseful, Lara said, “Houseful will be my third comic role in a row. And I’m not worried. It’s a large cast (Deepika Padukone and Jiah Khan). But I have the best part among the girls.”

She feels comedy is tougher that serious roles. “I think doing comedy is far tougher than serious roles. I don’t have to break my bangles and rub the sindoor off my hair to prove a good performance. Though I still have to get that one performance-oriented role which would take me to another level. Every morning I wake up and say, I know it’s out there somewhere,” she said.

David Dhavan is directing Do Knot Disturb, in which Lara playing a role opposite Govinda. Lara and Govinda worked together previously in Bhagam Bhag. “David and Govinda share an outstanding comic chemistry. If I’ve been able to match steps with them then that’s quite something for me. Govinda and I share a lot more scenes together here than in Bhagam Bhag,” added the actress.

The interesting thing about Do Knot Disturb is that for the first time Lara and Sushmita Sen, the two former Miss Universes came together, to which Lara see as USP.

There were reports that the actress is taking break after her recent box office flop Billu Barber. However she has something else to say “I had a number of releases, but then the strike happened and few of them got held up. Ravi Chopra’s Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai ran into litigation and David Dhawan’s Do Knot Disturb also got held up. There’s a stay order on Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai till June. I can’t comment on the matter since it’s subjudice. Ravi Chopra is a man who knows what he’s doing,” said Lara.

Lara can talk on and on when it comes to her forthcoming film Blue, in which she had played some underwater stunts. This time it’s another tale. Today she wants to thank and due credit to her co-star Akshay Kumar for that. It was Akshay who suggested her name for the film.

“Akshay was the one who recommended my name for Blue,” tells Lara.

Lara later adds that she was not comfortable doing those 70 feet underwater diving along with sharks around, but it was Akshay who always came to her rescue.

But then, Akshay has a favorite dialogue that works wonders on me. He says, “Tum nahi to aur kaun?” That really gets me,” said the candid Lara.
