Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupathi’s love story is no less than a typical Bollywood film. There is drama, emotions and a little action too. A rocky journey but a heavenly destination. How it all hapened, here for you!
Lara Dutta initially had been in a nine-year relationship with Kelly Dorji and dated Bollywood actor Dino Morea after that. Lara Dutta also apparently dated an American baseball player Derek Jeter for a brief while time in 2001.
As they say, you have got to kiss many frogs before you kiss your prince. That is exactly what happened with Lara Dutta. She got engaged to Indian tennis player, Mahesh Bhupathi.
Mahesh Bhupathi was already married. Though he divorced his wife to marry Lara Dutta, he sure crated some chaos. His wife, model Shvetha Jaishankar has spoken up about this issue. In an interview she reveals how her tennis ace hubby cheated on her and that he started going around with Lara Dutta even before their divorce came through.
But all is well that ends well. They married on 16 February 2011 in a civil ceremony in Bandra, and later followed it by a Christian ceremony on 20 February 2011 at Sunset Point in Goa. On 20 January 2012 it was confirmed by Bhupathi via a popular networking site that Dutta had given birth to a baby girl, and they have named her Saira.
