Lara Dutta, the ex Miss Universe, is all set to return to designing by launching her own Sari collection. The 35 year old model turned actress was known for her designing skills before her foray into acting. Now, after spending more than a decade in the acting field, she plans to return to designing.
“I have done films for 10 years. This (designing) is something new that I have forayed into; so it’s my new baby. I am excited about the response from the customers,” Lara said.
“The second collection is far more traditional. Personally I am a big fan of Benarasi saris and many other old-age fabrics; so I wanted to make those weaves younger and contemporary. Normally, we associate Benarasi saris with our aunts and our mothers, but I wanted to give it a younger and trendy feel,” said the ex Miss Universe who is married to the ace Tennis Player Mahesh Bhupati.
When asked if she’ll appear in films again, she said “Motherhood is the reason why I am seen very less on the big screen. But I feel that the film has to be really good for me to leave Saira at home and get back on the film set. I would rather spend that time and energy on doing something that will benefit me in the long run.”
