Lara Dutta, who arrived to support the scholarship programme organised by Fair & Lovely Foundation, was all in for women empowerment. The actress felicitated the girls selected for the scholarship scheme.
At the do, Lara recollected her younger days as she spoke about women power. The actress who’s gearing up for her Bollywood release Azhar, spoke about her modeling days and mentioned how she never depended upon her parents to fund for her education.
She said, “I started my career when I was 16. My parents were very supportive of my career decision. The only thing that my mother was concerned about me was my studies. She wanted me to at least have a degree and wanted to see me graduated.”
She further added, “During my course of college, I did not burden my parents with fees. I mean, they were financially strong to support me but I just wanted to stand for myself.”
The actress who looked stunning in a pink gown also spoke about her upcoming film. She will be seen playing a lawyer in Azhar with Emraan Hashmi. When quizzed about the kissing sequences for which Emraan is famous, Lara laughingly said, “The story in the film did not allow for such scenes between us. Bass main bach gayi (laughs).”
