One husband is enough:Lara Dutta

4 04 2010

Lara won’t comment on her personal life,” Lara Dutta’s publicist tells us. It’s quite unlike the Lara we’ve known — forthcoming and open about the men in her life. “Call it anything, maybe a phase. But I won’t comment,” asserts Lara, just back from a trip to the US with her friends.

There are, however, some things that she will talk about. One is her next release Housefull, in which she’s married to Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh. Does she believe in polyandry? “No, it’s illegal. Forget about finding two husbands, I’d be glad if I found one in this lifetime. Getting married once is hard enough, then why would any woman want to do it twice?” she asks. So, why does her character do it? “She comes to London to study and falls in love with a man, whom her father (Boman Irani) can’t stand. I can’t reveal why she has two husbands,” smiles Lara.

Is  comedy becoming her comfort zone? “My audiences like me in comedies. It’s a talent I have. If there’s a possibility of doing one great comedy a year by either David Dhawan, Priyadarsan or Sajid Khan, you’d be a fool to turn it down as they’re masters of their craft. But I don’t limit myself to it. I can even do a negative role. I’m more an actor than a star,” she states.

The latest buzz is that Lara will bring out a fitness video à la  Bipasha Basu. “I’ve always had a healthy image. I don’t diet, but believe in a balanced lifestyle for the mind, body and soul. Mine will be a lifestyle-wellness product, and not limited to a DVD,” reveals Lara. As for comparisons with Bips’s product, she says, “ Bipasha has an amazing body and a mantra that works for her. I never had a muscular body nor can I kill myself in the gym. I’m vegetarian and it works for me.”

She joins the list of actress-cum-entrepreneurs with this one. “You can’t face the camera all your life. I will also produce or direct if I’m equipped to at some point. I’m also writing a script,” she reveals.
