Mumbai: Lara Dutta, who recently tied the nuptial with tennis ace Mahesh Bhupati has made up her mind on the kind of roles she would be doing in future. The former Miss Universe has pulled off a stunning performance in a non-commercial flick ‘Chalo Dilli’, her first home production.

In the film, ‘Bheja Fry’ actor Vinay Pathak plays the male lead. The duo makes an unusual yet a refreshing pair.

The stunning lady, whose acting prowess has not been made good use of, has decided she will not like to describe the character that she is playing as “Shah Rukh Khan’s wife or Akshay Kumar’s girlfriend”.

Talking to reporters, Lara said in an interview, “I don`t want to play SRK`s wife or Akshay`s girlfriend anymore." On the same breath she said, "It`s just that in our business, there`s a serious dearth of roles for women. And invariably, a heroine is clad in fancy costumes, great make-up and hair extensions and is reduced to dancing in a film where the song becomes a big hit.”

She would like to essay characters that have substantial worth.

“I have done umpteen number of those myself. And the heroines are either being subjected to being hero`s wife or girlfriend." Hmmm..we`re sure the other beauties have heard that. Now we`re waiting for their take...”, Lara added.

Well…Finally Lara had evaluated her worth as an actress!!!

Keep the spirit high, Lara!
