Actress Lara Dutta is enjoying her stay in Madrid, Spain, and says her daughter Saira is the boss when it comes to choosing food when they go out to eat. She is just over 16-month-old, but Saira seems to have taken a liking for Chinese food.

IMG_0056Post-motherhood, Lara Dutta’s put The arc lights on hold and has now turned designer, launching an exclusive line of fusion saris.

When Asheeta of Chhabra 555 – a 60-year-old store in the heart of Delhi that has, for generations, catered to the whims  fancies of brides to be – first saw Bollywood beauty Lara Dutta she knew she had made the right choice in a future designer. Lara is after all an army kid, a Ghaziabad girl, who made it big with no help from anyone. And if this were not enough, she now only won a beauty title, but also settled into the role of a doting mother and supportive wife. The glamorous-cum-self-made image would connect with the upper middle-class audience Chhabra 555 was targeting.

“I have designed 47 saris and I worked on every piece. Every last minute detail, including how and where the bootis (motifs) should be placed, how the paisleys would look – in fact every design input was mine. They came back to me with final designs and of course the karigars (craftsmen) and production were taken care of by them,” says Lara.

The collection is divided into several parts – the first part have 12 designs and is executed in Benarasi (from Varanasi) work; then comes the Chikankari (special thread work from Lucknow) with gotta patti (gold or silver bands) or with a free flowing zari border. “There are some Bandhej (tie and dye) saris as well as basic georgettes which are simple and effective.

I like the half and half saris – velvet with Chantilly lace. It took almost four months to put this line together. And I wanted it to be affordable – so we kept the price points between Rs 13,000 to Rs 50,000,” she says.

Emboldened by the positive response, Lara is now coming up with a line of suits, in the prêt category. The line will also have a few saris. The idea is to give customers something celebratory without making it look over-the-top!

lara-762x1024The stunning actress and former beauty queen tells us why Africa is so special and how she loves travelling along with her young daughter.

1. Recent Vacation

My last vacation was in Melbourne and it was really special because we celebrated our daughter’s first birthday there. We took her for a cruise down the Yarra River and played tennis at the Rod Laver Arena. I love Melbourne with its colonial architecture juxtaposed against a modern skyline.

2. Must take along while travelling

An iPad to entertain my daughter, a cashmere shawl that doubles up as a blanket, a camera to capture special moments and wet wipes to clean little grubby fingers. It also used to include a good book, but a lot changes after motherhood!

3. Most extravagant holiday

Have been on a few. Five days at Singita Kruger National Park in Africa and 10 days at Le Bristol in Paris were quite extravagant.

4. Weird onboard conversation

A woman spent eight hours telling me how she was convinced we were going to crash and die on that flight!

5. Latest shopping acquisition

A fabulous fan for our new home from The Big Ass fan company.

6. One destination you would recommend

Safari in Africa. It is the closest I have ever felt to Mother Earth. There is something raw and organic about Africa that makes you connect to the deepest part of yourself. Africa offers an experience like no other place on earth.

7. A city you love

Now this is an interesting mix. I love a desert city of Jaisalmer and love watching the sun go down over the dunes and I also have a lot time for New York, which is truly global metropolis.
