The model-turned-actor-turned-producer Lara Dutta is loving the experience of being behind the camera, but she says producing films is not easy
Lara Dutta, who turned producer with the 2011 film Chalo Dilli, maintained, “I’m doing a lot of stuff which is behind the camera, so that’s a new phase for me and I am enjoying being behind the cameras more than anything else. “It’s been a tremendous learning experience and I had a great experience with Chalo Dilli and I’m proud of my film that I made.”
The movie features Lara and Vinay Pathak. “The idea was to grow by making a medium budget film which is high on content. In this industry, it’s hard to come by good content… it’s a tough job, and being a producer is not easy. I am enjoying in that process,” she added.
What about plans of directing a film? “I’am not going to direct in a hurry. There is lot of production work going on right now. I am excited about it.”
Besides producing films, Lara Dutta also plans to produce TV shows. “We are going to be looking at TV, but I can’t talk about it. You will hear about it. Television is opening up massively, people will see many more changes on TV… we have got interesting things and a great show in plans.”
Meanwhile, on the big screen, the actress will be seen in the Chalo Dilli sequel, which will soon go on floors.
