The latest star to join the cast alongside Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Rampal in Don 2 is Lara Dutta.
While the producer Ritesh Sidhwani and director Farhan Akhtar aren’t revealing much about Lara’s role, it has been revealed that she will play a femme fatale in the sequel.
Contrary to rumours, Lara is not replacing Isha Koppikar, but is an entirely new addition to the cast with a part especially written for her. A source says that the actress had to learn some martial arts and that she is very excited about doing an action role.
What still remains under wraps is whether Lara will be competing with Priyanka for the attention of Shah Rukh’s character in the film.
It is coincidental that Don 2 will have the two former Miss India’s (Lara, Miss Universe and Priyanka, Miss World) as both actresses debuted in Andaaz opposite Akshay Kumar in 2003.
