‘Akshay’s range as an actor has become huge’
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 <g data-gr-id="16">Bliing</g>, 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 <g data-gr-id="20">Bliing</g> in the capital. The former Miss Universe will be seen on-screen after a <g data-gr-id="22" style="color: #3b3b3b; font-size: 11px;">two year</g> sabbatical, but for her it is not a comeback.
She decided to do the <g data-gr-id="17">Prabhuddeva</g>-directed film because Akshay asked her to come on board. “I am not planning any <g data-gr-id="19">come back</g> or going away. I did Singh Is <g data-gr-id="18">Bliing</g> because Akshay asked me to join.”
