Don 2 was the last film Lara Dutta appeared in before she took an extended maternal leave from the Hindi film industry. However, post-pregnancy she opted for Bejoy Nambiar’s forthcoming bilingual film and needless to mention, is thrilled about its release as it marks a new phase in her acting career.
On January 20, Lara celebrated her daughter Saira’s first birthday with husband Mahesh Bhupati. The actress is apparently enjoying motherhood and is taking her sweet time to choose scripts. “She’s in no hurry to revive her career and is making sure she balances her work with her family. Her priorities are very clear,” says a source close to her.
On being asked why she chose the Shaitan director’s project to make her ‘comeback’ to Bollywood routine, the yummy mummy points to the script.
“After having my first child, I was looking for something that would excite me as an actress. When Bejoy read my role out to me, I knew this was it. I’m happy to be part of such a film. I’m all positive about it,” sums up Lara.
