Miss Universe Lara Dutta stepped into various genres of movies but off late her trademark movies are mainstream comedy. She started out her career with films like ANDAAZ, MUMBAI SE AAYA MERA DOST, BHAAGAM BHAAG, NO ENTRY, PARTNER, BILLU BARBER etc. The dazzling Lara Dutta is back again in yet another comedy flick DO KNOT DISTURB, directed by David Dhawan starring Govinda. In conversation with Lara Dutta…
Tell us more about your film DO KNOT DISTURB. What kind of character do you play?
I’m playing Dolly in the movie who is in love with a married man and to hide the post marital love affair, a lot of situations arises which turn out to be a complete drama with humor. The film has been directed by David Dhawan and produced by Vashu Bhagnani.
So are you the same Govinda’s Dolly who has become so popular with the audience?
‘When you have Govinda & David together, humor comes out automatically…’
How was your experience working with another Ex-Miss Universe Sushmita Sen?
It was good, but we had very few scenes together, all together it was a dream come true working with her.
With two former Miss Universe working together in the same film, we heard that there were few clashes between you two?
Is it necessary that if two actresses are working together, they are bound to have a cat fight? The shoot was a really good experience and nothing like that happened.
How was it working with Govinda again?
It was indeed a fantastic experience working with him again after doing movies like BHAAGAM BHAAG and PARTNER. But this time, I got more opportunity to perform with him. But this doesn’t end here; I’ve worked with Govinda again in Ravi Chopra’s BANDA YE BINDAAS HAI which will be released soon.
Did you face any kind of problem while shooting for DO KNOT DISTURB?
When you have Govinda and David Dhawan together, humor comes out automatically & naturally. So I tried hard to come up to their level.

And what is the reason behind you taking up comedy flicks?
Well, it’s mostly because I’m getting more of these types of movies. Also working in a comedy movie is a lot of fun and I really enjoy my work. I believe that it’s more difficult to work for a comedy film than playing a serious character. I really relish working with directors like David Dhawan, Priyadarshan and Sajid Khan.
