She made her debut opposite Akshay Kumar in 2003 film “Andaaz” and Lara Dutta feels he has grown a lot as an actor.
The 37-year-old mother of one, who will be seen playing a translator in “Singh Is Bliing”, said she still has so much to learn from the “Baby” star.
“Akshay’s range as an actor has become huge. He was already a big superstar when I did ‘Andaaz’ with him, but he has grown more with time.
“We have done so many films together like, ‘Housefull’, ‘Bhagam Bhag,’ but even today there is so much to learn from him,” Lara said during the promotions of “Singh Is Bliing” in the capital.
The former Miss Universe will be seen on-screen after a two year sabbatical, but for her it is not a comeback.
She decided to do the Prabhuddeva-directed film because Akshay, 48, asked her to come on board.
“I am not planning any come back or going away. I did ‘Sling Is Bliing’ because Akshay asked me to join. We had a blast while making. It was like working with family and there is no great thinking behind it.”
The duo share a great camaraderie off-screen as well and the “Chalo Dilli” actress says audience will enjoy there comic timing.
“Me and Akshay share a great timing and bond in real life and that comes alive on screen. Our scenes in ‘Singh Is Bling’ are something which audience will enjoy a lot,” she said.
