'Blue', also starring Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt and Zayed Khan is centered on an underwater treasure guarded by sharks and is slated to release Oct 16, just a day before Diwali.
'My next film after 'Do Knot Disturb', 'Blue' is releasing just a day before Diwali, so I'm hoping that it does well and my Diwali becomes a bumper Diwali,' Lara, who was wearing a pink satin dress, told reporters here.
The former beauty queen-turned-actress was in the capital to attend the 25th edition of MMTC's Festival of Gold.
Asked how she planned to celebrate the festival of lights, Lara said Diwali would be a family affair for her this year, unlike last time.
'Diwali is a festival meant to be celebrated with family, but last year I was shooting in Singapore for 'Do Knot Disturb'. So this year I'll be spending time with my close ones,' Lara said.
