Come July, Lara Dutta‘s dream to turn director will take shape. The actress has been doing groundwork for her pet project, and it will take off this monsoon. She has been working on the script for the last two years.
It is learnt that she now has a cast in place & her film will go on floors soon. Right now, everything is under wraps, but the actress will make an announcement soon.
According to a media insider, “It’s a small indie film and the script demands fresh faces. The actress recently met up with some newcomers and watched their screen tests. She isn’t rushing blindly into this. She has really worked hard on putting her script together. In between her shoots, she dedicated time to this project.
Her film is a romantic drama and happens in the span of one night. The actress is very critical of her work and hasn’t talked about her script to anyone. She will discuss it once she is confident of what she’s written. Even close friend Sajid Khan is unaware about her directorial plans.”
When contacted, Lara’s spokesperson confirmed, “Yes, she’s working on a script & is to direct a film. But there’s no set date, as she’s very happy with the way things are working out. It will happen when the time is right.”
