The first film from the 33-year-old's production house is " Chalo Dilli", which has got encouraging reviews. Directed by Shashant Shah, it sees Lara in the female lead while Vinay Pathak plays the male protagonist. It hit the screens Friday.
"'Chalo Dilli' was a very special film that came to us. It's not a female-oriented film. It's a story where both the cast have equal amounts to play and it feels nice to make a film, which is not arty or alternate cinema, it's a commercial film with the simple story of a journey," said Lara.
Some might feel the actress is oddly paired with actor Vinay, but says the story demanded so.
"It's not necessary that you do all films with a superstar. If you think you will always do a film with a big actor, you would never get a chance to do a film. The story demanded someone like Vinay. He was very, very suited for the film," said Lara.
