Lara Dutta made her debut as a producer with the 2011 film Chalo Dilli and now, three years later, she is all set to make a sequel to that film.
“The film is titled Chalo China and will be shot in multiple locations across Asia, including Thailand, Malaysia and China. This film is not set in India,” confirmed the actress.
Vinay Pathak, who will reprise his role as Manu Gupta, says “I had put on 15 kgs for the earlier film, this time I’m almost there. Manu is not Milkha Singh so he can be of any shape or size. Even if he weren’t obese and moustached, you’d still know it was him.”
Chalo China is being produced by Lara’s husband Mahesh Bhupati’s banner Big Daddy Productions, Lara’s Bheegi Basanti Entertainment and Eros.
When asked if Mahesh will make an appearance in the film, Lara says “No, Mahesh is not in the film.”
