Lara Dutta Bhupathi returns to the big screen after a long hiatus, post mommyhood with  Singh Is Bliing, in a quirky, de-glam avatar. Her character Emily,  creates trouble in Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson’s love story in the film.

Lara says, “I play Emily aka Imli, a Goan, who is hired by Singh (Akshay Kumar) and his friends to be a translator for them to be able to communicate with Sara (Amy). It’s funny but also quirky. I had to make an effort to look geeky and frumpy. My look was decided upon between the director, the producer and me and was executed by the film’s stylist Arun.”

Word is that she had to be convinced by Akshay to play Emily. She refutes the rumour, “He didn’t need to convince me, he just had to ask. I will never refuse a film with Akshay. Apart from anything else, I love working with Akki. He is hard working and extremely fun to work with. It’s like working with family.”

Producer Ashwini Yardi says, “Lara plays a key role in Akshay’s and Amy’s love story. She’s responsible for the chaos in their lives.”
