Lara Dutta, former Miss Universe who made her debut in Tamil with the Arjun starrer, Arasatchi is returning to Tamil after a gap of nearly 13 years. She will be seen in Bejoy Nambiar's David with Vikram and Jiiva and will appear in the Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions. This is her comeback film as she has just had a baby girl named Saira with Tennis star, Mahesh Bhupathi.
Lara asked the makers to schedule the shoot around her routine with the baby as the little one is only a few months old and the new mommy is reluctant to leave her for long stretches. The producers have agreed so Lara has come onboard for this project.
