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.

lara_bhupathi_300Bollywood star Lara Dutta would like to see her tennis star husband Mahesh Bhupathi on the silver screen.

“I would like to see Mahesh on the screen but I don’t think he will ever come in front of the camera,” said the former miss universe.

Bhupathi married Lara in February, 2011. The couple was blessed with a daughter in January, 2012.

Talking about her 15-month old daughter, Saira, the actress said, “Motherhood is quite challenging. Everyday is a whole new adventure with your child. I absolutely love it and my daughter is a happy and independent kid. We are extremely happy to have her in our lives.”

Lara, who launched Samsung’s new phone Galaxy S4 in New Delhi, considers herself a very tech savvy person.

“I have to be honest, I can’t live without my phone. It’s my first child so we are trying to capture every moment of her life and want to make as many videos as possible.”

Lara started her Bollywood journey with Priyanka Chopra in “Andaaz”. She has been part of commercially successful films like “No Entry” , “Kaal”, “Partner” and “Housefull” among others.

“Chalo Dilli” was Lara’s first venture as a producer. The film starred Lara and Vinay Pathak in the lead roles.

On its sequel, she said, “We are only contemplating things at this moment so there is nothing in the pipeline as of now. I would love to do a sequel but if something shapes up then we will announce it.”

Her production house Big Daddy productions is currently busy with two films which will go on floor in August and December respectively.

Lara was last seen in Bejoy Nambiar’s action-thriller film “David”.

264Thirteen years ago, they won beauty pageants together — Lara Dutta was Miss Universe and Priyanka Chopra, Miss World 2000. Eventually, they went on to act together in the 2003 hit Andaaz, and jointly won the female debut awards for the year. The two never acted together again, fuelling rumours of a cold rivalry, but rubbishing them all on her visit to the Capital on Saturday, Dutta said that she would, on the contrary, love to cast PeeCee in one of her forthcoming production ventures.

“We started together … and I feel so proud when I see Priyanka doing so well! I’d love to cast her in one of my forthcoming productions,” said Dutta, who turned producer in 2011 with Chalo Dilli.

Asked if she regrets taking a backseat in films after motherhood and making way for her contemporaries to benefit in the process, she says, “Not at all. Bollywood is not the only thing that I wanted to do.  I acted full-fledged for 12 years and now my priorities in life are different. Those who aimed just for Bollywood are living their dream, and it’s good for them … but there’s more to me than just an actor,” said the 35-year-old, who’s currently working on her next production venture that’ll see her in the lead.

“I’m also eagerly waiting for the sequel of No Entry,” said Dutta, who looked svelt, having lost a lot of weight since pregnancy in 2011. But it’s not rigorous workouts or sport practice with tennis-champ husband Mahesh Bhupathi that keeps her in shape.

“Running behind my one-and-a-half-year-old daughter Saira is the secret!”

Lara-Mahesh’s love story
Actor Lara Dutta and hubby Mahesh Bhupathi may be celebs in their own fields, but it’s not Bhupathi’s tennis or Dutta’s acting or Miss Universe title that attracted them to each other. “I am not even a big tennis fan. Mahesh is a self-made man, very reliable… just the perfect life partner one wants to have. That’s what attracted me,” said Dutta, who was in town yesterday with hubby for a special initiative marking the launch of Samsung Galaxy 4. “She’s a very grounded person, and family oriented. That’s what I loved about her,” added Bhupathi.
