HAVING FUN: Sushmita Sen with Lara Dutta


Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta ignite the screen together in their new film

TIMES NEWS NETWORK (BOMBAY TIMES; October 4, 2009)


David Dhawan has managed a coup in getting the two Miss Universes, Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta together as the female lead in his rib-tickling comedy Do Knot Disturb that released on October 2.

David says he has opened a fan club for the two beauty pageant winners because both of them were extremely popular on the set with the other members of the cast and crew. “I’m their fan No 1,” laughs DD. The filmmaker says, “I have worked with Sushmita in Kyon ki Main Jhooth Nahin Bolta and Biwi No 1 and I have worked with Lara in Partner. Both are stupendous actresses and their comic timing is classic.”

DD also adds that all through the making of DKD, presented by BIG Pictures and produced by Vashu Bhagnani,
the two women remained utterly professional, never once trying to upstage the other.

As for the ladies themselves, Sushmita at the DKD press conference said, “I know the press is utterly disappointed because Lara and I didn’t engage in a catfight or tried to steal each other’s thunder.
But the fact remains that we have a healthy respect for each other.”

Lara points out that this is the first time ever
that two Miss Universes have shared screen space in a film. “Our country has only two Miss Universes and if they also start fighting, it couldn’t get sadder than that! I just wish I had more screen time to share with her as we hadn’t worked together earlier and it was a fantastic opportunity. I hope people will cast us again at some other time. At least David should do it again.” As Riteish Deshmukh, who has teamed up with these sizzling beauties in DKD says, “These two are a combination of beauty and brains. And honestly, I’m richer for the experience of having worked with them. They are a treat to watch.”
