For Lauren Gottlieb, it was instant fame a couple of years ago when she appeared as the female protagonist in ABCD – Anybody Can Dance. However, just when one thought that more of her would be seen in the months to follow, there was complete silence on her part. She went missing for an entire 2014 and for those who loved her dance moves in the Remo D’Souza directed film, a glimpse was finally on display when she did a special song and dance appearance (Calcutta Kiss) for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
Well, her fans can pretty much catch up with the lady in back to back months now, with the sequel ABCD – Any Body Can Dance 2 set to release next month. However before that, she will be seen in a mad comedy Welcome 2 Karachi where she plays a cop.
Our source tells us,
“Yes, she is playing a cop in the Arshad Warsi-Jackky Bhagnani starrer. Of course since the film is a mad comedy with a spoof feel to it, nothing has to be taken seriously. The humor quotient is quite high in the film and Lauren would be showing an entirely different facet of her acting talent in the film.”
The film’s plot is centred on Shami and Kedar (played by Arshad and Jackky respectively), who are pretty much in their dumb and dumber avatar.
“That’s right, they are playing such big fools and it is Lauren’s job to catch them in Pakistan. Later she gets into a predicament as the Government order comes in that she doesn’t need to catch the two as they are actually nice people.”
No wonder, the trio also has a nice outing together, courtesy Lauren’s dance number where she plays ‘Karachi Ki Shakira’. Meanwhile, Lauren is making the best of the opportunity provided to her and was in Kashmir recently to promote the film along with Jackky Bhagnani.
