Lara Dutta who was last seen in an itsy-bitsy role in Abhishek Kapoor's 'Fitoor' will now essay the role of Meera, a public prosecutor in Emraan Hashmi starrer 'Azhar'. We hear that she plays a no-nonsense lawyer who fearlessly stands for the truth and is feared by her peers.
Giving a little insight about her role in the film Lara was quoted saying to a tabloid, "It's a challenging role and I had fun playing it because it's a totally fictional character but integral to the narrative."
Most of her scenes were shot in Hyderabad and few scenes in London. As part of her prep, she spoke to a lawyer friend and observed her at work to understand the body language and the finer nuances of playing the part. She went through all the legal documents pertaining to the case and even had regular reading sessions.
Emraan Hashmi plays the role of the former Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin in this Tony D'Souza directorial. The film also stars Prachi Desai as Naureen, Nargis Fakhri as Sangeeta Bijlani and Gautam Gulati as Ravi Shastri.
