Bejoy Nambiar's David will be Lara Dutta's first film after the birth of her daughter Saira.
Don 2 was the last film Lara Dutta appeared in before she took an extended maternal leave from the Hindi film industry.
However, post-pregnancy she opted to act in Bejoy Nambiar's forthcoming bilingual film David. Needless to mention, the actress is thrilled about its release as it marks a new phase in her acting career.
On January 20, 2013 Lara celebrated her daughter Saira's first birthday with husband Mahesh Bhupati.
The actress is apparently enjoying motherhood and is taking her sweet time to choose scripts. "She's in no hurry to revive her career and is making sure she balances her work with her family. Her priorities are very clear," a source said.
On being asked why she chose Bejoy Nambiar's project to make her 'comeback' to Bollywood, the yummy mummy said, "After having my first child, I was looking for something that would excite me as an actress. When Bejoy read my role out to me, I knew this was it. I'm happy to be part of such a film. I'm all positive about it."
