Shortly after tennis ace Leander Paes' acting debut, it is now his doubles partner Mahesh Bhupathi's turn to act. The actor will be working with his wife Lara's Chalo Dilli co-producer Krishika Lulla.

Lulla seems to have convinced Mahesh to do the lead role in a drama-thriller directed by Shashant Shah (also the director of Chalo Dilli). And so the Chalo Dilli quartet, Lara Dutta, Mahesh Bhupathi, Krishika Lulla and Shashant Shah, will once again be united in the new film.

"Krishika and Mahesh's wife Lara are very keen that he act in their next home production, which will be directed by Shashant Shah. The quartet had a wonderful time working on Chalo Dilli and want an encore," a source told Mid Day.

In fact, the ladies seem rather confident that Hesh is just meant for the role.

"Yes we are persuading Mahesh to act in our next production. He's almost ready. It will be a drama-thriller this time. I won't star in it. I was just joking when I told him that. He fits the bill of the lead character in Shashant's next," Lulla confirmed.

"I loved the story in Chalo Dilli as I believe it touches reality because all of us travel and come across different kinds of people? Some even become your friends for life," she added.

Leander Paes will be acting in the film Rajdhani Express.
