The Smita Patil lookalike, Chitraganda Singh, who was supposed to star in David Dhawan's son Rohit Dhawan's directorial debut DESI BOYZ, has been replaced by the former beauty queen & the effervescent actress Lara Dutta.

Though no official announcement has been made for the same but, according to the latest reports, there has been a change in the female casting. The Eros project also stars Sonam Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham alongside.
It's worth mentioning that Lara Dutta has earlier worked with Rohit's father David Dhawan in the films, PARTNER & DO KNOT DISTURB. Looks like the credibility of her past work and the current success of HOUSEFULL, in which she starred, is what prompted Rohit to make the last minute changes.
Well whatever the reason be, one thing is evident that with David Dhawan's backing and Lara's great comic timing, Rohit's directorial debut is next blockbuster in the making!
