Mumbai: Bollywood hottie Lara Dutta is once again set to fight it out with her supposed rival Priyanka Chopra on the silver screen. The two desi beauties, who were last seen sharing screen space in the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Andaz’, are all set to relive the experience as both Lara and PC have been signed on for Farhan Akhtar’s much-awaited flick ‘Don 2’.
Reports reveal that Lara has been cast alongside Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Rampal — all three who have been retained from the film’s prequel ‘Don’.
However, it’s being believed that she would have a meatier role than just be seen vying for SRK’s attention alongside Priyanka in the story. “Lara’s not replacing Eesha (Koppikhar). She’s a completely new addition to the cast with an entirely new part written for her. But yes, the role will require Lara to learn some form of martial arts and she is very kicked about doing an action role,” said a source.
Beauty pageant winners Lara and Priyanka had made their Bollywood debut together in 2003, with blockbuster flick ‘Andaz’. While for Priyanka, there’s been no looking back since then, Lara apparently is yet to make it to the top spot in the industry.
