It was very early in her career, 2003 to be precise, when the former Miss Universe Lara Dutta played Kesar, a village belle and Abhishek Bachchan's love interest in the Apoorva Lakhia directed MUMBAI SE AAYA MERA DOST. Though this unconventional (one may also call it somewhat Western looking) beauty with brains, delivered a good performance as a simple village girl, all her efforts were in vain as the film sank at the ticket window. This failure resulted in Lara doing many roles which suited her urban looks and was reasonably successful too with ZINDA, BHAGAM BHAG and PARTNER being a few such examples.


However, Lara, who shares a very warm relationship with Shah Rukh Khan and has always put in a guest appearance in his films (OM SHANTI OM and RAB NE BANA DI JODI), is back in the role of a small town/village housewife in his home banner venture, BILLU BARBER. In the film, Lara plays a mother and is paired opposite Irrfan Khan.

The promos of the desi version of Pritam's hit number, ''Khudaya Khair'', rendered by Soham, has Lara fantacising about Shah Rukh Khan, who plays a superstar called Sahir Khan, much to the chagrin of her husband Billu (Irrfan), and it gives a nice twist to the film. In fact it makes it appear as if it is a triangle between Irrfan, Lara and SRK. Larapaji (as Akshay Kumar refers to her fondly!) is looking absolutely beautiful with minimum make up, unkempt hair, doing the usual chores in an ethnic ghagra choli.
