Lara Dutta is an actress who has captivated audiences with her breathtaking appearance and flawless acting abilities. Her fans were astonished when she slowed down her work after 2015 and took a sabbatical from movies, despite the fact that she has always been a joy to see on the big screen. Although Lara is back in action now, her break has sparked a lot of conjecture. And now, the former beauty queen has finally spoken out about it, claiming that she was sick of being cast as the hero’s girlfriend or wife.
During her conversation with PTI, Lara said, “By the time I reached my early 30s, I honestly may have gotten a bit jaded. The industry was in a different space back then. You were cast because a glamorous actress had to be cast in a film. You were invariably playing the hero’s girlfriend or wife. I got tired of it”.
“It gave me a lot more to do than being someone’s wife or girlfriend. I left my mark by doing comic films that were successful and popular. That became my sweet spot and gave me the opportunity to do more than just be a pretty glamorous heroine on screen. By the time I had my daughter in my early 30s, I had gotten jaded and tired of that. It was important and refreshing for me to take that step away,” she added.
While it’s been about two years since she returned to acting with web series such as Hundred, Hiccups, and Hookups, and she was most recently seen in Kaun Banegi Shikharwati, Lara appears to be pretty pleased with the diversity of roles she currently has. She said, “I did so much work in the last 18 months, more than what I have done in the last six years put together. It has been an incredibly liberating time as an artiste to be able to play these diverse characters.”
