The success of Partner was precisely what Lara Dutta’s unexciting career needed. Now she has Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai with Govinda and an action-filled Blue with Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar. However, it’s her alleged link-up with almost every co-star that gets her under the spotlight. After her split with Kelly Dorjee, Lara was associated with many, right from her co-star in Partner Salman Khan to the much-married Bobby Deol with whom she has done many films.
The latest is her alleged proximity to Dino Morea. About these allegations, the spunky ex-Miss Universe says, “I take these rumours in my stride. If I sit and worry about it, I’ll go mad.” She rubbishes them all as mere rumours and says if there was any truth to them, it would be obvious. However, she is quick to add, “I have known Dino for half my life. So if I go out to lunch or a movie with him, I have every right to.”
Ask Lara if her Western outlook is coming in the way of her not getting as many offers as her rivals, and she begs to differ. “Everybody has their own place here,” says she, “I got the most feedback on my role in Andaaz and Partner. Both were very Indian in their outlook.” Watch the video for more.
